NBA INSIDER TOM HABERSTROH: “TO PLAY, OR NOT TO PLAY?” – THE AGE-OLD QUESTION ENGULFING THE NBA, ANTHONY DAVIS & THE PELICANS
Tom Haberstroh’s Column Available NOW Exclusively on NBCSports.com/Haberstroh and MyTeams app
STAMFORD, Conn. – February 28, 2019 – After another week of confusing drama in the NBA, NBC Sports National NBA Insider Tom Haberstroh examines the current playing status of Anthony Davis to evaluate the NBA’s role in perpetuating a double standard: plenty of healthy players have been shut down, but Davis continues to see the court. More questions have surfaced around the NBA’s inability to find a solution to the age-old question: “To play or not to play?” Haberstroh’s latest column is out now, and a new column debuts each week exclusively on NBCSports.com/Haberstroh and on the MyTeams by NBC Sports app.
- “This is where we’re at in the league’s most confusing soap opera. The Pelicans are playing Anthony Davis, but only for 20 minutes because, well, it’s not entirely clear.”
- “Look, The Brow is not Zion [Williamson] … And yet, the same conversation — to play, or not to play — has engulfed the NBA, Davis and the Pelicans, raising thorny questions about the integrity of the game against the backdrop of legalized sports betting.”
- “This league-approved tanking method has bewildered the rest of the league … It’s all in the name of strategically avoiding injury that could alter their respective franchises. How is [Anthony] Davis’ situation any different?”
In October it was announced that Haberstroh signed an exclusive deal with NBC Sports Regional Networks as the National NBA Insider. In addition to a weekly column and biweekly podcast, he’ll make regular appearances on all NBC Sports Regional Networks for a weekly TV hit and The Big Number.
