    Why did they come out with an 82 game schedule when there is a 0% chance that teams will play 82 games this season?

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Andrea-Cavalli/757338131 Andrea Cavalli

      Because they have to book arenas, hotels etc. just in case they find an agreement. For instance, regardless of your 0% prediction which is just an opinion (an understandable opinion, sure, but still an opinion) and not a fact, if they find an agreement around October, they need to have a full-schedule ready by then..because otherwise they would struggle to come up with a schedule in few days and they would certainly struggle with booking arenas (many arenas around the league, such as Staples Center, host events every night) and hotels…in this way the schedule is ready and don’t have to worry about it.
