The sporting world has come to a complete standstill due to the Coronavirus outbreak. And people whose livelihood hinges around the NBA has also thus come under certain uncertainties and threat. These people include ground/arena staff, ushers, ticket takers, janitorial staff, freelance journalists, etc. This list just goes on and on. But there is still some hope alive for them. As several players(including Giannis Antetokounmpo & Zion Williamson) since Thursday morning have come forward with big paychecks and love to help those in need.
Milwaukee Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo is the latest star to follow Kevin Love’s footsteps as he pledges to donate $100,000 to the Fiserv Forum staff to help them out during the NBA’s suspension.
The Greek Freek announced this decision on Twitter
Detroit Pistons power forward Blake Griffin also pledged $100,000 to help staff at Little Ceasars Arena. He announced this on Twitter on Friday, saying he was following Kevin Love’s lead.
Hope is that with this indefinite suspension(at least 30 days) franchise owners will also stand up and join this cause.
