Charles Barkley appeared on The Paul Finebaum show and spilled the tea on whether the NBA will return. Per Barkley:
“I do know this, talking to my bosses at Turner: We’re going to play basketball,” Barkley said. “It’s gonna be in Florida and (Las) Vegas, or just Florida.”
He also mentions that MLB & NHL will be back as well, with the NFL and College Football in wait and see mode.
“(The NBA is) gonna make a decision in the next week,” Barkley said on ESPN’s “The Paul Finebaum Show” on Monday. “I’m 100% sure we’re going to play. I know my friends in Major League Baseball are going to play. I know that the hockey league is going to play. I think the pro football and the college football, they have to sit back and see how it goes for us.”
