MGM offers to host NBA in bubble city in Las Vegas to finish season



While the sports world searches for ways to resume, MGM Resorts International has offered to create a “bubble city” for leagues like the NBA and WNBA on the Las Vegas Strip.

According to The New York Times‘ Kevin Draper, MGM proposed housing athletes and related sports staffs in a quarantined block on the Strip. The offer was extended to the NBA, WNBA, NHL and MLS—all leagues that have yet to figure out when or how they can safely finish their seasons.

In MGM’s proposal to the NBA, the resort reportedly said The Mandalay Bay would serve as the hub since it’s connected to other hotels and a convention center. Athletes’ families would be able to stay with them in the quarantined resort and have access to amenities like restaurants, casinos and spas.
