The NBA season has been on hold since March 12, following a string of players testing positive for the novel coronavirus. Throughout the last two months players, coaches, and owners have come together to take care of the people who have taken care of them since they became NBA teams. In a very generous gesture, the workers who work the games throughout the season and arena staff have been receiving funds from the teams. Moreover, players and staff alike have helped front-line workers and hospitals by donating money and meals in any way that they can.
NBA fans are getting anxious about what is going to happen. Unlike Major League Baseball or the NFL, the NBA has no clear plan of action just yet. The commissioner has announced he will not make a decision on canceling or resuming the season until later this month or even in July.
On May 8th, the NBA slowly began opening its facilities. The facilities are open with stipulations that include a limit on the number of players and coaches allowed in the facilities at once. Only teams located in cities where coronavirus testing has become readily available for health care workers will be allowed to open their practice facilities. No formal practices can be held; only volunteer workouts may be held at the facilities.
The Golden State Warriors’ Steve Kerr has made a donation to COVID-19 relief efforts. Kerr has included a donation of $100,000 to the Oakland and San Francisco Unified School districts to aid in COVID-19 relief efforts. The contribution by Kerr is a part of a total $250,000 contribution, which will be split equally between the two school districts. The funds will be used to purchase hundreds of laptops and internet hotspots for Bay Area Youth to help continue physically distant learning and aid in teacher-student connectivity during this pandemic.
We are patiently waiting for up-to-date information on the NBA season and what league leaders will decide about finishing it or canceling it. Because of injuries, the Warriors have not had the greatest of seasons, but we enjoyed watching the young talent compete together and grow as a team. We are also thankful for the contributions to the community by the Warriors as an organization. #StrengthInNumbers
