Good morning, Big Blue Nation.
The NBA board of governor’s are expected to accept Adam Silver’s restart plan. There seems to be a consensus that the restart will include a portion of the regular season as well as the Playoffs.
The plan also entails playing in Orlando, Florida at a Walt Disney resort.
Honestly it’s not easy to write about sports with everything going on right across the river from me in Louisville and in many cities across the country.
I don’t have any wise words or sage advice about the events of Friday night. I just pray for peace and for justice. I pray that our nation, which has been teetering on edge due to the stress of dealing with a worldwide pandemic, can pick up the pieces and move forward with a clear vision of justice and righteousness for all people.

I addressed it with our team this evening. I want to keep that conversation private, but what I will say is we need to have an open dialogue and conversation about these issues. The only way we can move forward as a nation is to be open and honest with ourselves.— John Calipari (@UKCoachCalipari) May 30, 2020
