Meet the eight key figures who helped make the NBA bubble a success

  Meet the eight key figures who helped make the NBA bubble a success When an NBA bubble idea was floated, commissioner Adam Silver was skeptical. Meet key figures who collaborated to make the bubble safe and COVID-free.“When the idea was first broached, it didn’t sound logistically realistic,” Silver said.

Justin Ross " J . R ." Sweezy (born April 8, 1989) is an American football guard for the Arizona Cardinals of the National Football League (NFL).

Sweezy , 30, is in his eighth NFL season and will be a starting guard for the Cardinals this fall. Sweezy 's first career game on the offensive line came at State Farm Stadium against the Cardinals in Gaillard played two games at guard as a redshirt freshman and then became a full-time starter at

  Inside look at Milwaukee Bucks' decision not to play game vs. Magic By not playing their playoff game, the Milwaukee Bucks set off a chain of events that has people wondering when the next NBA game will take place.This time, there weren’t any teams on the court, either. Neither were there any coaches patrolling the sideline. Neither were there any scouts and executives sitting on the socially distanced seats across from the court.

Sweezy will join a Cardinals offense that holds a lot of intrigue following the January hire of coach Kliff Kingsbury. Sweezy missed the 2016 season due to a back injury but has otherwise been pretty durable. That may have attracted the Cardinals , who had myriad injury issues on the line last season.

Since missing the entire 2016 season and being a Buccaneers cut, Sweezy has been a dependable lineman.

The Cards have, however, dealt with extensive injuries up front in recent years. This marks a key setback for this year’s more successful squad.

Despite the Cards employing veteran Max Garcia, third-year blocker Justin Murray will replace Sweezy in Arizona’s starting lineup. Murray started 12 games at right tackle last season. Murray was already seeing time at guard in a rotation with Sweezy and Justin Pugh. He has played 19 percent of Arizona’s offensive snaps this season.
