The Rush: No bubble could spell trouble for NBA as two Warriors players have COVID19
Two players on the Golden State Warriors tested positive for COVID-19 leading the team to delay the start of training camp, Dr. Fauci revealed when he believes we might once again see full stadiums, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones doesn’t believe that the Denver Broncos roster struggles have been any worse than those of his team, and former return specialist Devin Hester had some pretty strong words for one of his old quarterbacks on the Chicago Bears.
JARED QUAY: The last NBA season just ended, and the next one is already in trouble. The Golden State Warriors announced that two of their players tested positive for COVID-19 and delayed the start of their training camp, which could explain why Sixers coach Doc Rivers said this when asked about playing the upcoming season outside of the bubble.
DOC RIVERS: Freedom is a concern. Like, man, I guess I'm very concerned if we can pull this off.
JARED QUAY: And he's not the only doctor who think's that. In an interview with Yahoo Sports, Dr. Fauci said full crowds in NBA arenas this summer is probably unrealistic.
JARED QUAY: But it wasn't all bad news from the Fauch. Because when it comes to football season, he was a little bit more optimistic. According to Dr. Fauci, when the next NFL season starts in September we could returned to packed stadiums. I'm going to be there with my shirt off.
JARED QUAY: And that will be dope. Because this football season is getting a little ridiculous. Just look at today. The Ravens and Steelers are playing a game on Wednesday at 3:40 in the afternoon.
- Oh, well that's nonsense.
JARED QUAY: That [BLEEP] so weird, Steelers defensive tackle Cam Heyward took to Twitter to complain about it. Former Bear stand out and University of Miami great Devin Hester sat down with Bleacher Report. And the kickoff return specialist shared some thoughts on his old quarterback Jay Cutler.
DEVIN HESTER: He's the best quarterback when it comes to accuracy, power, knowledge of the game. The best quarterback hands down I ever played with. Now when it comes to leadership, the worst.
- The worst?
DEVIN HESTER: The worst. He don't know how to communicate. He don't know how to get his teammates involved.
JARED QUAY: Whew, that's some pretty strong words about Tomi Lahren's better half.
JARED QUAY: Still, that was nothing compared to what Jerry Jones thinks about one of his old quarterbacks. The Cowboys owner and talking flour tortilla was asked about the Broncos having to start Kendall Hinton at quarterback.
JERRY JONES: I don't know that Denver had any more of a challenge than we've had with DiNucci.
JARED QUAY: Yep, that was Jerry Jerry Lewis comparing a quarterback he signed to a receiver on a practice squad. That's a bad comparison, Jerry Jones. That's almost like somebody comparing M&M's and steaks-- two different groups. M&M's are great for somebody who wants M&M's. But if you want a steak and someone give you M&M's, you might attack them like a bear would.
