The NBA courts for the resumption of the 2020 season have been revealed … and, as promised, feature a massive “Black Lives Matter” paint job up front and center.
The league and the NBPA came up with the idea of displaying the message in the 3 arenas used inside the bubble … as a way to show their solidarity with the social justice movement.
With BLM paint … the side benches have been spread out to provide a distance of six feet for staff and team players as a precaution during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Of course, commish Adam silver previously suggested to ban multiple coaches – including Mike D’Antoni (69) and Gregg Popovich (71) – from the margin due to their age … but finally abandoned the idea.
The NBA setup also includes huge video cards and its “Whole New Game” slogan for the reboot.
While no fans can attend the matches, at least the players have the chance to fill a few spots.
The league is set to show up again on July 30 with 22 teams competing for the playoffs.
Our sincere thanks to
