Details on the NBA's rules for the players in their return to play attempt were leaked Tuesday night, with a look at the daily schedule and safety rules included. While seen as strict to some, the league is making sure they're covering every base in their return plan to maximize player safety.

Over the weekend, Kyrie Irving and a few other players voiced their concerns with the plan, and it seems that there is a split in the NBA on whether to return or not.

Will we actually see the NBA resume play?


Ryan McDonough, former Suns GM and Radio.com Sports NBA Insider, joined Bill to talk about the players wanting to return, player safety, the Bucks, and more:

What are his thoughts on the strict rules being set by the NBA for the players?

At the end of the day, will the league resume despite some of the fighting from a couple players?

Is there a team that the extended break will help more than others?

Does he think the Bucks have a legitimate chance of winning the title this year?

How will the rest of the season affect whether or not Giannis stays?

How hard will it become for Jon Horst to fill out the roster with a smaller salary cap and big extension for Giannis?
