The LA Clippers and four other big losers if the NBA should cancel the remainder of the 2019-20 season.
Hopefully, this is not a reality that we will ever see come to fruition this season. However, as it currently stands, there’s a chance that the 2019-20 NBA season will not be resumed due to the growing concerns surrounding COVID-19 in the United States and around the world.
While there is some hope that the season could be resumed in one fashion or another in June or July, there’s no guarantee that it will. Should the remainder of the season get canceled, there are a number of narratives around the league that will certainly flip on a dime.
Even though there are teams that it wouldn’t impact all that much – you know, the teams whose fates were already sealed no matter what was going to happen during the last 15-20 regular-season games. The teams that had no chance of making the playoffs, and those that were just waiting for the NBA Draft Lottery.
At the same rate, there were many teams sitting on the other side of the spectrum – teams that will be greatly impacted by the loss of nearly 20 regular-season games and a playoff run.
Which players or teams will be the biggest losers should the season get canceled? Here are five that will feel it the most.
