A collection of season-ending injuries results in NBA to call a mulligan on the 2017-18 season. Season to re-start next week.
In an unprecedented decision, NBA commissioner, Adam Silver has decided to take a mulligan on the 2017-18 NBA season, stating there were too many injuries in the opening matches.
Silver told reporters earlier today that it “was a rough start. “We cannot start the season with two career-ending injuries in the opening two nights. That isn’t even considering whatever the fuck is happening in Chicago. “To lose Gordon Hayward in the opening minutes like that was enough, then to lost Jeremy Lin last night was the straw that broke the camel’s back. “It is difficult. Some players are injured, and others get sucker-punched at practice. As a league, we want to put the best product out there. “It is due to these circumstances, and we have decided to start the season again next week”.
Many team owners and office staff are thrilled with the decision, considering some of the disappointing results. “I think it is best to forget the start of the season ever happened”, explained Phoenix Suns’ coach, Earl Watson. “This mulligan call has come at a great time for our organisation”.
Similar to the Suns, the San Antonio Spurs’ guard Kawhi Leonard was jubilant at the news. Leonard was an early favourite for MVP; He has no timetable for return from an injury. When asked if re-starting the season will boost his MVP stocks, Leonard emphatically mumbled “yes”, while avoiding eye contact with everybody in the room.
However, league sources have said that the Indiana Pacers are one organisation who are “ropable” at Silver’s decision. The Pacers who are on track for an 82-0 season post-Paul George.
