It sure looks like the 2019-20 NBA season will ultimately come to a conclusion at Walt Disney World in Orlando this coming October. After some initial concerns about taking to Florida amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, things have gone swimmingly within the bubble.

That continues to be the case.

NBA reports zero positive COVID-19 tests over the past week

This is the second consecutive week since the season resumed that the NBA has reported zero positive COVID-19 tests. Talk about acting as a guide for other professional sports leagues.

As MLB continues to struggle with outbreaks of the virus while it plays outside of the bubble, the NFL is slated to begin its 2020 season with teams playing at their home venues.

Needless to say, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver has done a tremendous job making sure that the season can be completed this coming October after the Association was the first to suspend its campaign back on March 11.

The hope here is that this continues with multiple games being played on a daily basis at Walt Disney World. For now, everything is working great in this regard.
