Mark Cuban said he believes that the NBA's bubble environment will be safe for players, though he is keeping an eye on rising COVID-19 rates in Florida.
"I don’t have specific concerns. I think the NBA and Disney are working with our doctors and scientists to do everything possible to keep (participants) safe. In fact, given the rise in cases in states, I have every reason to believe the setup we have in Orlando will be safer for our players and travel parties than staying in their respective cities," Cuban told the New York Post.
Cuban added that "he has no reason to believe there won’t be a champion crowned" for this NBA season.
Cuban also said that the league would experiment with various ways to create atmosphere in the empty setting.
"There will be a lot of technology we will be experimenting with to try to introduce noise and make the event more entertaining for players and TV viewers. We have been having a lot of fun with apps that allow fans to push noise they make at home into the arena. So not only will there be competition on the court, there will be competition from fans to contribute energy as well!"
