    What NBA can learn from CBA

    What the NBA could learn from the Chinese Basketball Association.
    The CBA hasn't formally announced a plan, but multiple sources said that what has been drawn up includes clustering teams in one or two cities and playing one another in a round-robin format in empty arenas over several weeks. There are 16 games left for each of the 20 teams in the league. The goal has been to play out the remaining schedule in full before moving on to the playoffs, with the hope that fans could eventually be admitted.
    ...
    Teams would live and play in a constantly monitored environment, with players' temperatures checked several times a day.
    - Brian Windhorst, ESPN

    The idea of the NBA is to play out the rest of the season in Las Vegas or something like that.

    My guess is that they'll be having several games at the same day but ideally you'd need multiple venues to make this smoother, though traveling between those venues will be a mess.
