‘I have no idea’: Mark Cuban backtracks optimism toward the return of the NBA

After previously showing some light of optimism toward the NBA season resuming in May, Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has since tempered those expectations.

”I have no idea,” Cuban said on ESPN’s Get Up this morning. “The only thing I know is that we’re going to put safety first and we’re not going to take any chances.”

“We’re not going to do anything that risk the health or safety of our players, our fans, our staff, the whole organization.”

Last Tuesday, Cuban told WFAA in a video interview that he thought an NBA return for mid-May was plausible. “Hopefully by the middle of May, we’re starting to get back to normal and the NBA is playing games.”

What would constitute a return for the NBA? “All the experts have to say it would be absolutely safe. We cannot put anything ahead of the heart and safety of our players and staff; that’s it,” Cuban said.

“I haven’t had any conversations where anybody has even discussed a date at this point.”

It’s clear that the Cuban and the NBA has been in the forefront of taking the upmost precaution during this time and will continue to do so going forward.
