Dallas Mavericks owner and Preston Hollow resident Mark Cuban thinks the NBA has an advantage in pandemic safety over the NFL, reported CNBC.

The NBA is allowed to bring 15 to 17 players to their campus in Florida while the NFL can have over 50 players and staff at training camp, reported CNBC.

The NFL plans to play games in their stadiums while all 22 NBA teams are staying in their “bubble” in Orlando to keep the risk of catching coronavirus down, reported the site.

“We have one location, we’re able to keep everything under control,” said Cuban, reported CNBC.

The NBA protocol has teams playing games at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World Resort with no audience this season due to the pandemic.

In the mass quarantine location, players are wearing masks, following health protocols, and the NBA is enforcing frequent coronavirus testing, reported CNBC.

As of now, the NFL is not going to have an isolated location where they will play.
