Do you want to know why James Harden blatantly ignored the NBA's COVID-19 protocols by going to a strip club maskless? Because he knew the league and its commissioner didn't have the balls to punish him.
He was absolutely right. Here's Adam Silver's incredibly soft explanation for not suspended Harden.
Adam Silver, appearing on ESPN, said James Harden was not suspended because "The precedent is that discipline gets ratcheted up. It’s Christmas. It was a first offense."
Silver said "in a way he got lucky." If the game had been played, Harden would have been docked 1 game's pay.

Oh, it's Christmas and Harden only went to the strip club, without a mask, days before the Rockets season opener one time. Luckily for Harden the game was canceled due to contact tracing or he would have been docked one game's pay.
In other words the skeleton who gets run over by the players doesn't have any balls. He wouldn't want to piss off one of the stars by disciplining him for not following the rules.
What a fucking joke.
