Hornets nest charlotte
North (or South) Carolina disc golfers, I have a question.
2020.11.23 01:05 Marty_P North (or South) Carolina disc golfers, I have a question.
I’m in the Charlotte area and was going to either play Hornets Nest or drive down to Winthrop. Are either worth it? And which one should I go to? Also I just played Diavolo today and that place is amazing. Made me want to move here.

2020.11.17 02:52 hostilecarrot I just ranked every disc golf course I’ve played in NC.

I'll be in Charlotte over Thanksgiving weekend. Does anyone know if there are recurring events at Hornets Nest on Fridays or Saturdays? Or nice locals who want to show an out-of-towner around?

2020.09.17 20:06 TheGriesy Question for North Carolina Disc Golfers:
The wife and I are taking a road trip through the Carolinas (Asheville and Charlotte mostly) at the end of October. I have time enough for exactly ONE disc golf round pit stop and have it narrowed down to 2 choices. I would like to get some insight and suggestions from anyone who’s played these, if possible.
Asheville: Richmond Hill
Charlotte: Hornet’s Nest
For reference: been playing since summer, with decent midrange control but still working on driving accuracy over 300’. I would probably be playing short tees for fun, not necessarily trying to make some challenge run at a course record. Thanks.

2020.08.22 06:05 CarefulCoderX Thinking about Attending Worlds
So I live in Charlotte about 10 minutes from Hornets Nest and was thinking about attending the Disc Golf Pro Tour Championship. I was thinking about flying my brother and grandpa out to watch, but I want to make sure that attendance is an option.
Do we need to buy tickets or reserve a spot? I haven't heard it mentioned and couldn't find anything searching online.
Edit: Made a mistake and said Worlds when I was referring to the Disc Golf Pro Tour Championship. I don't see any way to change the title or I would.

2020.08.19 05:38 BearsMaulinKids Charlotte natives help me decide on a course to play!
I live in SC and some friends are meeting up next week to go explore new courses and since Charlotte is apparently disc golf city, we are very interested in playing some courses there. I've looked through previous threads, and you guys just have too many courses! Two of us are tournament amateur, and two of my buddies are novice - one picking up the sport 2 months ago. After some digging I am interested in Kilborne, Hornets Nest, and Reedy Creek as those stood out from the list with a few pictures as well from reddit. I just can't decide which to start with for our first course played here! So asking for suggestions for a course that will make our first trip up there a blast!

2020.07.28 19:57 1-800-Summon-Me While on a walk with my love I screamed out "YOUR MOM IS A BITCH" in the middle of the street. Felt good. We might break up. Feels bad.
Due to the recent anal probing/fisting I've just received from his mother, for the love of all that is holy, go easy on me.
Also, hello again. It's been a while since I posted and many of you may not remember my story so here's some refreshers if you're possibly sitting on the John and trying to pass the time. 1. How I first fucked way the fuck up 2. Here's how I thought things were going to get better and kicked a hornet's nest 3. Then I got drunk and wrote a shitty post about how she put me in a double bind 4. Still reading? Damn. Well I thought I could call it quits.
So at the end of the day, my love and I decided to go to counseling together. Because, hey, a LOT of y'all suggested that we do so. So that's been happening since pre-COVID apocalyptic times (February?). It's brought out a lot of material to work on and I am grateful for it. We both attend individual counseling as well because it turns out that both our families gave us an anxiety-giving childhood which dragged on into our adult lives.
Ngl, things have been getting better. As far as communication goes, he's learned to communicate more effectively and I'm learning how to listen without interrupting.
If you didn't read the stories (hey, I don't blame you) here's all that you need to know. My boyfriend is a guy who completely shuts off every time there is the slightest bit of conflict or if there's anybody raising their voices.
He is able to relate that pattern of behavior back to her and he's working on it. I gave the guy kudos for facing that fear. Things were going well.
Until he decided to step up and say: Hey, I want to live my own life. Let's move in together.
So imagine my happy ass celebrating in my room with a beer in one hand and his heart in the other, dancing with no pants, screaming: FUCK YEAH. LET'S DO IT!
Y'all, I felt like I won. Like, hey. Things are getting better. He's healing and so am I and all this shit's finally coming together. Then last Sunday happened.
It's her saint's day, whatever that is. Frankly, I don't care. My love had invited me over for lunch one-on-one with plans to have steak for dinner and break the news to her there. Steaks n' sayonara.
Nah. She comes waltzing and practically scoffs at my ramen and says sadly, Oh, no no no. I can't have any of thaaaat. Artificial food is no good.
Bitch, this came straight from South Korea, it could be made of beetle dung and obscure sauce, you bet your ass I'm slurpin that up.
She goes to my love and says, Viejito, will you please get this cup for me?
So I got two (2) complaints against this one (1) statement.
Viejito means "husband" in Spanish. Viejo, vieja, viejito, viejita, esposo, esposa.... there's many ways to say it. And that's one. I'M FUCKIN READY TO JUMP OFF A BUILDING AND DO A FLIP.
- McScuse me bitch??? Wtf did you just call him??
- Did your arms fuckin fall off or did your eyeballs rot out because there's a step stool 2 feet away from you...
Y'all, I'm diguuuusted.
But I shrug it off. It's Ramen time. She puts on "church service" on YouTube as she knows I'm strictly Roman Catholic. Her son is too. Idk what she is but the preacher is a woman and there's no Catholic practices going on. I'm like "Okay, whatevs. The word of God. Leggooooo".
I'm disgruntled. My love and I were ready to watch Ghost Adventures and lol irl at our hero, Zak Bagins and his team that looks like Good Charlotte on steroids.
So after that forced sermon, she insists on watching a series of her choosing because in her words: It's my saint's day and it's all about me :P haha just kidding!
No, you're not.
I told her I wasn't ever comfortable with any shows re: family. For very obvious reasons. So of course, she picks a series that deals strictly with a husband getting screwed over by his wife and all of his family's in on it.
So my counselor showed me some techniques to deal with my anxiety in a public situation. I follow the instructions. I scroll through Twitter to take my mind off of bad juju thoughts.
Then I hear her pause the show and set the control down. Welllll \
ahem* I'm going to pause this show since NO ONE is interested. I thought it would be nice to watch something together but you're obviously being passive aggressive so.... I'm going to retire to my room.*
My love JUST SAT THERE. Like. Nothing. No clearing of the throat, no "Hey, don't fuckin do that to her", no nothing. He never defended me. He just sat there in silent agony. The vibes in the room weren't even tense. They were just red, dark and angry.
Him and I spent the next couple of hours recoiling and talking it through. I got angry, he got sad. It's a stupid cycle we're daring to break. We tried to work things out but at this point I know he's never going to grow a spine or a pair of balls to tell her what a bitch she is to her face.
Never in my life have I felt so hated by a woman. I'm sure it would bring her pleasure to watch her
son live alone in misery for the rest of his life.
We wanted to move out and get married and do everything beautiful couples do. I'm young, he's young (we're in our twenties). But nah.
So we are going to discuss
s e p a r a t i o n
(aka: Breaking Up)
tonight during our counseling session.
Who knew the things that we would come to fear the most were not in fact, monsters and vampires and things that go bump
in the night. Rather, our demons showed themselves as dead-end jobs, faceless insecurities

2020.07.01 21:50 74_Jeep_Cherokee Disc golf store near Charlotte
Hi all, I'll be moving up to Charlotte soon. I'll actually only be there on and off for work, so it will be my second "home". Anyhow, I was going to start a second bag to use while in town so was looking to see if there is a local store. I'll be staying near the airport. Also, of course I want to play the Hornets Nest but any other recommendations for a casual player that struggles to make par ? thanks
EDITED to add - any Covid restrictions to be aware of ?

2020.04.21 02:34 SforzandoCreations Improper History of "Charlotte Town" - a possible MLS team name
Charlotte was NOT named Charlotte Town when chartered in 1768. The charter can be read here: https://www.cmstory.org/exhibits/history-timeline-rural-beginnings-1730-1772/1768-charlotte-chartered
Charlotte was often incorrectly called Charlotte Town (and Charlottesburg) by outsiders. For example, Lord Cornwallis incorrectly called it Charlotte Town while invading during the Revolutionary War. He is the one that said Charlotte was a "hornet's nest of rebellion." See this video featuring a Charlotte historian: https://www.wbtv.com/video/2019/12/31/good-question-what-is-story-behind-charlotte-town/
Edit: So, after doing some more map research with https://web.lib.unc.edu/nc-maps/browse_date.php
from the UNC Library it appears Charlotte was commonly called a variant of "Charlottesburgh" (so I stand partially corrected) in addition to Charlotte until the appearance of just Charlotte around 1800. This could have been a combination of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County (Queen Charlotte was from Mecklenburg-Strelitz in Germany). No form of Charlotte Town made an appearance until General Cornwallis's map of invasion.
I contacted the Charlotte Museum of History and this was their response:
"Thanks for getting in touch with the Museum. We’re glad MLS is considering Charlotte history in its naming of the new soccer team!
The WBTV clip you shared is pretty much the information you are looking for – there’s no better Charlotte historian than Tom Hanchett and the guest, Dr. Hugh Dussek, is actually one of the longest serving members of our Board of Trustees.
Prior to mass travel and map-making, many rural areas did not have official names if they weren’t chartered cities. This is much like an unincorporated area today. Roads were the same way, with no official names. And because people didn’t travel as much and didn’t have as much knowledge of the world outside of their community (at least, of its roads and towns), sometimes these names get a little confused. Even during the time period where you’re finding the name as “Charlottesburg” on maps, there are other documents that call the city “Charlotte” including this map from 1789. (note the map also spells the county “Mclenburg” instead of Mecklenburg)
I don’t doubt there are probably 18th c. or even 19th c. documents out there that refer to “Charlotte-Town” but I don’t know of any off the top of my head. I’m not sure where the road name “Charlottetowne Ave” came from, but I’d venture to guess that road was not there prior to the 1950s. A history of CPCC may get you somewhere, since the school is on Charlottetowne Ave.
I hope that gives you some insight at least to the variation in town names. I’m sorry we couldn’t give you a definitive answer! If you’re interested in researching this further, we’re happy to pass your information on to other historians and researchers."

2020.03.29 00:21 Ingeneric_Username Which teams have fewer fans than their namesake?
Note: This is based off of a post on nfl by u/TwentyThreeEightyOne around two years ago. Some comments mentioned a desire to do this study for NBA teams, but to my knowledge, none has been done. Due to boredom during the quarantine, I have decided to try this for myself.
The question I am asking is "Which teams have fewer fans than the population of said team's namesake?" For example, are there more actual timber wolves then there are Timberwolves fans? These are the questions that require answering.
I first need to find a number of NBA fans. Unfortunately, this is more difficult than it might sound, but a reasonable estimate is around 300,000,000. It is also reasonable to expect around 10% of this number to be fans of no specific team, so I will be using the number 270,000,000. To find the number of fans for each team, I will be taking the number of twitter followers multiplied by (total fans/total twitter followers of all NBA teams) which is (270,000,000/67,947,245), and rounding the result to the nearest fan. Below you can see a chart detailing this process.
|Team ||Twitter followers ||Estimated fans |
|Atlanta Hawks ||1,271,890 ||5,054,072 |
|Boston Celtics ||3,558,742 ||14,141,270 |
|Brooklyn Nets ||1,103,148 ||4,383,547 |

|Dallas Mavericks ||1,724,426 ||6,852,302 |
|Denver Nuggets ||969,861 ||3,853,909 |
|Detroit Pistons ||949,573 ||3,773,291 |
|Golden State Warriors ||6,474,536 ||25,727,676 |
|Houston Rockets ||3,067,367 ||12,188,707 |
|Indiana Pacers ||1,262,193 ||5,055,540 |
|Los Angeles Clippers ||1,624,703 ||6,456,035 |
|Los Angeles Lakers ||8,813,342 ||35,021,322 |
|Memphis Grizzlies ||1,097,204 ||4,359,928 |
|Miami Heat ||4,728,961 ||18,791,335 |
|Milwaukee Bucks ||1,233,197 ||4,900,319 |
|Minnesota Timberwolves ||1,006,476 ||3,999,405 |
|New Orleans Pelicans ||1,081,532 ||4,297,652 |
|New York Knicks ||2,174,851 ||8,642,142 |
|Oklahoma City Thunder ||2,795,459 ||11,108,234 |

|Philadelphia 76ers ||1,893,146 ||7,522,739 |
|Phoenix Suns ||1,119,647 ||4,449,109 |
|Portland Trail Blazers ||1,296,512 ||5,151,912 |
|Sacramento Kings ||1,081,118 ||4,296,007 |
|San Antonio Spurs ||3,488,312 ||13,861,404 |
|Toronto Raptors ||2,180,343 ||8,663,966 |
|Utah Jazz ||992,626 ||3,944,369 |
|Washington Wizards ||1,055,170 ||4,192,898 |
|Total ||67,947,245 ||269,999,997 |
There are approximately 5,054,072 Hawks fans. There are over 200 different species of hawks, and a sum of the populations of just 4 of them (Red-tailed hawk
, Broad-winged hawk
, Cooper's hawk
, and Swainson's hawk
) is 5.28 million hawks. There are more hawks than Hawks fans. Boston Celtics:
There are approximately 14,141,270 Celtics fans. Celtics can be defined
as relating to the Celts. The word Celt encompasses the Irish people, among others. There is around 80 million Irish people
worldwide. There are more Celtics than Celtics fans. Brooklyn Nets:
There are approximately 4,383,547 Nets fans. An estimated 450 million people
play basketball in the world. It is reasonable to expect at least one basketball hoop (with a net attached) per 102 players, considering how many people own a personal basketball hoop. There are likely more nets than Nets fans. Charlotte Hornets:
There are approximately 3,893,590 Hornets fans. It is difficult to find an accurate hornet population, but considering how widespread the 20 species
of hornets are and the fact that their nests can hold around 700 of them, it is safe to assume there are more hornets than Hornets fans. Chicago Bulls:
There are approximately 16,460,940 Bulls fans. A bull is a male cow. There are around 1.4 billion cows
in the world, and it is safe to assume that more than 1% of them are male. There are more bulls than Bulls fans. Cleveland Cavaliers:
There are approximately 13,013,240 Cavaliers fans. A Cavalier is a gentleman trained in arms and horsemanship. In today's world, that is not a common skill set. It is safe to assume that there are more Cavaliers fans than cavaliers. Dallas Mavericks:
There are approximately 6,852,302 Mavericks fans. A maverick is a wild cow that has not been branded or gathered. As these cows have not been branded or gathered, it is difficult to get an accurate count of them. Most sources agree that the number of wild cattle remaining is minimal, however, thus it is likely that there are more Mavericks fans than mavericks. Denver Nuggets:
There are approximately 3,853,909 Nuggets fans. The Nuggets were named after the gold and silver nuggets that were in high demand in the mid 19th century. It is impossible to know the true number of gold and silver nuggets in the world, but considering their natural occurring tendencies there are probably more nuggets than Nuggets fans. Detroit Pistons:
There are approximately 3,773,291 Pistons fans. A piston is an essential part of a car engine, with multiple in a single engine. There are over 1.4 billion cars
on the road today. There are more pistons than Pistons fans. Golden State Warriors:
There are approximately 25,727,676 Warriors fans. A warrior is a brave or experienced soldier or fighter. There are currently 20.5 million people
in the military worldwide, not all in fighting roles. While this is a crude estimate, it appears there are more Warriors fans than warriors. Houston Rockets:
There are approximately 12,188,707 Rockets fans. There have been 6,854 rockets
launched from earth since the start of the space age. It is unlikely that 12 million more remain on Earth. There are more Rockets fans than rockets. Indiana Pacers:
There are approximately 5,055,540 Pacers fans. The Pacers were named after racing pacers in both auto and horse races. Since there is a maximum of one pace cahorse per race, it is almost certain that there are more Pacers fans than pacers. Los Angeles Clippers:
There are approximately 6,456,035 Clippers fans. The Clippers were named after the sailboats that passed through San Diego Bay. Around 28,206 sailboats
were chartered this past year, and it is safe to assume that the total number of sailboats is lower than 6.5 million. There are probably more Clippers fans than clippers. Los Angeles Lakers:
There are approximately 35,021,322 Lakers fans. The Lakers, originally in Minnesota, were named after the many lakes there. Apparently there are 117 million lakes
in the world. There are more lakes than Lakers fans. Memphis Grizzlies:
There are approximately 4,359,928 Grizzles fans. There are around 55,000 grizzly bears
. There are more Grizzlies fans than grizzly bears. Miami Heat:
There are approximately 18,791,335 Heat fans. The flow of heat from Earth's interior to the surface is estimated at 47,000,000,000,000 watts
. This does not account for the heat that is coming from the sun and other sources. If we have one fan equal to one watt, there is more heat than there are Heat fans. Milwaukee Bucks:
There are approximately 4,900,319 Bucks fans. A buck is a male deer. The US deer population is 33.5 million
. Assuming at least 14% of deer are male, there are more bucks than Bucks fans. Minnesota Timberwolves:
There are approximately 3,999,405 Timberwolves fans. There are around 10,000 timber wolves
worldwide. There are more Timberwolves fans than timber wolves. New Orleans Pelicans:
There are approximately 4,297,652 Pelicans fans. There are around 650,000 pelicans
. There are more Pelicans fans than pelicans. New York Knicks:
There are approximately 8,642,142 Knicks fans. The Knicks are named after knickerbockers, a type of pants typically worn by immigrants from the Netherlands. The pants have been outdated for hundreds of years and are no longer worn regularly. There are more Knicks fans than knickerbockers. Oklahoma City Thunder:
There are approximately 11,108,234 Thunder fans. There are around 100 lightning strikes
per second. If we assume that the average thunder sound lasts for 5 to 10 seconds, that brings us to 1,000 thunders at any given moment. There are more Thunder fans than thunder. Orlando Magic:
There are approximately 5,983,137 Magic fans. Magic, which is the use of means to have supernatural power over natural forces, doesn't really exist, thus there are more Magic fans than there is magic. Philadelphia 76ers:
There are approximately 7,522,739 76ers fans. The term 76ers is restricted to people alive in 1776. Those people are all dead. There are more 76ers fans than 76ers. Phoenix Suns:
There are approximately 4,449,109 Suns fans. The sun is the name of the star around which the Earth orbits. There is only one of those. There are more Suns fans than suns. Portland Trail Blazers:
There are approximately 5,151,912 Trail Blazers fans. The Trail Blazers were named after the Oregon Trail, which is estimated to have been used by around 400,000 people
. There are more Trail Blazers fans than trail blazers. Sacramento Kings:
There are approximately 4,296,007 Kings fans. There are 26 monarchies
in the world, not all ruled by someone with the title of king. There are definitely more Kings fans than kings. San Antonio Spurs:
There are approximately 13,861,404 Spurs fans. Spurs are an optional part of riding boots. Around 15 million people
will ride a horse in the next 12 months. A good portion of those people will either share boots or not wear riding boots at all. More will wear boots without spurs, particularly beginners. While it is impossible to determine the true number of spurs in the world, it appears likely that there are more Spurs fans than spurs. Toronto Raptors:
There are approximately 8,663,966 Raptors fans. A raptor is a generic term for all birds of prey. This includes all the birds on this list
, which together is far more than 8.7 million. There are more raptors than Raptors fans. Utah Jazz:
There are approximately 3,944,369 Jazz fans. Since jazz is a concept and not something quantitative, I will be counting the number of jazz musicians. This is not much easier, because there is no reliable way to measure the number of musicians
. However, given the numbers in the study are far less than 4 million, and jazz musicians only make up a small portion of the population of musicians, there is evidence to suggest that there are more Jazz fans than jazz musicians. Washington Wizards:
There are approximately 4,192,898 Wizards fans. A wizard is someone who has magical powers. Since we have established that magic does not exist, it is reasonable to theorize that wizards do not exist either. There are more Wizards fans than wizards. Teams that have less fans than the population of their namesake:
Hawks, Celtics, Nets, Hornets, Bulls, Nuggets, Pistons, Lakers, Heat, Bucks, and the Raptors What does this mean?:
Edit: It has come to my attention that the Raptors were named after the velociraptor, meaning that there are more Raptors fans than raptors, since dinosaurs are unfortunately dead.

2020.03.19 13:07 Stormdude127 Teams' risk of contracting COVID-19 based on name
I have concocted a list of all the teams in the NBA and their respective risks of contracting the coronavirus, based solely on their names. Note that some of these teams already have confirmed cases (looking at you Gobert). Note also that corona means crown in multiple langages.
Atlanta Hawks - Can’t catch coronavirus if you’re flying thousands of feet above the ground. Plus, they already paid their dues with the avian flu. Zero risk.
Boston Celtics - Celtics can refer to Irish people. Irish people are known to drink a lot. Alcohol is one of the known killers of coronavirus. Low risk.
Brooklyn Nets - Nets catch things. How do you get coronavirus? You catch it. Very high risk.
Charlotte Hornets - Hornets live in nests. Nests have an extremely high population density, much like China, the heart of the coronavirus outbreak. Very high risk.
Chicago Bulls - Ever heard of a bull in a China shop? Well if any of the Bulls have been in a China shop recently, they probably have coronavirus. Extremely high risk.
Cleveland Cavaliers - Cavalier is an adjective meaning showing a lack of concern, making the players more likely to take actions that will get them sick. On the other hand, even COVID-19 doesn’t want to visit Cleveland. Medium risk???
Dallas Mavericks - Mavericks is a place in California with big waves. A big wave of coronavirus infections is sweeping the nation. High risk.
Denver Nuggets - Nuggets refer to gold nuggets, which are acquired while mining. You know what else is acquired while mining? Jewels. Ever heard of a crown jewel? Checkmate Nuggets.
Detroit Pistons - Everyone knows pistons are an integral part of Minecraft, and Minecraft is a great game to play while practicing social distancing. Low risk (I guess Christian Wood hasn't been playing Minecraft).
Golden State Warriors - If there’s anyone most likely to fight off a virus, it’s the Warriors. Sadly that doesn’t prevent them from getting it in the first place. Medium risk. Also don’t let this distract you from the fact that the Warriors blew a 3-1 lead in the 2016 NBA Finals.
Houston Rockets - If things get too bad they can just blast off into outer space. Minimal risk.
Indiana Pacers - The Fitnessgram Pacer Test is a multistage aerobic capacity test that progressively gets more difficult as it continues. Probably not the best thing to be doing during a pandemic, but doesn’t contribute directly to being infected. Medium risk.
LA Clippers - A clipper is a 19th century merchant sailing ship that can be used to sail on oceans. The world’s oceans are the only places without confirmed cases of coronavirus. Checkmate COVID-19. Zero risk.
Los Angeles Lakers - LeBron James is often referred to as “King” James. Kings have crowns. He could easily spread it to the rest of the players. Extremely high risk.
Memphis Grizzlies - Male grizzly bears come out of hibernation in mid to late March, so right about now. Not great timing. High risk.
Miami Heat - Heat is one of the known killers of coronavirus. Low risk.
Milwaukee Bucks - Buck urine is often used to calm the nerves of other deer while hunting. Urine is also known as piss. Pabst Blue Ribbon tastes like piss, but everyone knows it’s still Wisconsinites’ beer of choice, not Corona. Zero risk.
Minnesota Timberwolves - Wolves are closely related to dogs, and the first dog to test positive for coronavirus recently died in Hong Kong. It’s likely that Timberwolves are susceptible to getting it as well. High risk.
New Orleans Pelicans - Pelicans are known to be gregarious birds. Meaning they enjoy being in crowds and socializing, which is a great way to pick up the coronavirus. High risk.
New York Knicks - Knicks is short for Knickerbockers. Anybody still wearing knickerbockers has bigger things to worry about than the coronavirus. Zero risk.
Oklahoma City Thunder - Thunder is just sound, and last I checked sound waves can’t catch viruses. Call me if that changes. Zero risk.
Orlando Magic - Making the coronavirus disappear isn’t that cool of a trick if it’s too small to see to begin with. Medium risk.
Philadelphia 76ers - 76ers refers to 1776, the year America declared its independence from the crown (Great Britain). They then proceeded to fight them and win. Zero risk.
Phoenix Suns - A corona is an aura of plasma that surrounds the sun. Therefore each Sun has a corona. Extremely high risk.
Portland Trailblazers - Trailblazers are people who are pioneers. At the forefront of society. Not only do they follow the latest WHO guidelines but they’re likely to be the first to discover a vaccine. Zero risk.
Sacramento Kings - Kings wear crowns. Their logo has a crown on it for fuck's sake. Extremely high risk.
San Antonio Spurs - The Spurs arena is famous for their bat problem. COVID-19 is thought to have originated in bats and made the jump to humans in a wet market in China. The bats could spread the disease. Extremely high risk.
Toronto Raptors - The name Raptors hearkens us back to the time of the dinosaurs, when there was no modern medicine. Without modern medicine the coronavirus would run rampant. Extremely high risk.
Utah Jazz - Jazz is built on improvising, and improvising is not what you want to be doing in the wake of a global pandemic. Extremely high risk.
Washington Wizards - Wizards can presumably get rid of any ailment with magic. Zero risk.
