Jimmy Butler offered baskets to every teammate20 April 2020 / Miguel Coelho
The 30-year-old didn't want his teammates to remain rusty... So he gifted them baskets
Disturbing news arrives every day from the United States of America regarding the Covid-19 pandemic. And the best basketball league in the world is not immune to that. Yesterday, Karl-Anthony Towns posted an emotional video stating that both their parents got caught with the virus, and although his dad is recovering well, his mother is in a medically induced coma, fighting for her life. He alerted everyone to stay at home and follow the procedures that the World Health Organization has provided throughout these days. Many players like Stephen Curry, LeBron James, Giannis Antetokounmpo and others are consistently warning the population on their social media accounts, so we can get through this quickly and resume basketball activities. The situation with KAT is heartbreaking, and we’re praying everything goes smoothly, with no casualties, but it’s a reminder that the spread could get to anyone.
Another few cases have been reported as well. Maury Hanks, a person who works in the scouting department for the Detroit Pistons, has been diagnosed with coronavirus, as he’s currently fighting for his life. Tweets from personal friends or from the organization itself have already been shared by several people, to give him the strength to overcome this battle.
Maury Hanks is a well-respected scout with the Detroit Pistons. He’s also worked in the NBA with the Nets and Raptors and coached for decades in college ball. He’s in a battle right now with the coronavirus. A lot of people on all levels of ball are pulling for him. https://t.co/3IxSbNd24m— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) March 26, 2020
The Detroit Pistons received the Utah Jazz on March 7. That was one of the games immediately flagged by the NBA, as soon as everyone knew that Rudy Gobert tested positive. Thankfully, Christian Wood, one of the Pistons player, and actually the one that spent all night guarding Rudy Gobert, has already recovered, finding himself in perfect conditions after medical treatment. However, a Cameraman didn’t share the same luck yet. That person is in a medically-induced coma and going through the biggest fight of his life. Survive. This plague is only catching up in the United States of America now, so it’s safe to say we’ll probably see more cases in the league. It’s up to them to stay at home and encourage everyone around to do the same.
