Here we are NBA in July! Usually it’s the NBA summer league with a bunch of NBA hopefuls and a star studded group of NBA rookies and a few 2nd year players. July 2020 will be completely different as it will be the NBA’s restart!
The NBA will be back this month and it will be played in a bubble! If you haven’t heard then I’m here to fill you in since most of us have been in a bubble of our own.
The NBA shut down on March 12th 2020 due to a positive Covid-19 result from NBA All-Star Rudy Gobert of the Utah Jazz prior to a game against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
In the middle of a national pandemic, protests broke out and thousands were and still are marching to end social injustice and police brutality all across the United States of America all the while Covid-19 continues to surge and jobs and businesses continue to be lost. Once the NBA returns on July 30th it will have been 143 days with no NBA basketball.
Super informative piece. Great write-up!!!
