How Former Michael Jordan Teammates and Rivals Reacted to ESPN’s ‘The Last Dance’

ESPN’s ‘The Last Dance,’ a 10-part documentary series about Michael Jordan and the 1998 Chicago Bulls provided an intimate look at the epic team.

The NBA Could Return By May

NBA Could return soonThe NBA was the first professional sports league in the US to suspend its games and, subsequently, its season. Rudy Gobert, center for Utah Jazz, was confirmed to have the Coronavirus, with other players following suit. This prompted officials to suspend the league until the situation is better- and safer. But according to NBA insiders, the NBA could return by May, but the experience will be different from what we are used to.

A lot of people have been successful in their efforts to open a pay per head casino to compensate for the loss of income due to the lack of sports games. After all, basketball is not the only sport that is on pause- the NHL is suspended as well, and the MLB is delaying its opening.

But as much as safety is the prime consideration in suspending leagues across the world, another concern is the danger this poses to the economy, as well as the employment and well-being of those who work in the sports and sports betting industry. Now, a careful balance between the two will have to be considered.

Why Borussia Dortmund or RB Leipzig Can Win the Bundesliga

The Bundesliga suspended the season in mid-March because of coronavirus concerns but they already have plans in place to return.

The German Football League (DFL) made plans for the Bundesliga to resume this month. The games would have to take place behind closed doors and there would be regular testing of players and strict hygiene measures.

Can anyone challenge Bayern Munich? I like Borussia Dortmund's chances. This team won back-to-back Bundesliga titles in 2011 and 2012 but since then, they have finished second four times, all behind seven-straight champions Bayern Munich.
