Donovan Mitchell also tested positive. Article up on ESPN about it.

Apparently Rudy was just going out of his way to touch everything and anything (teammates and their stuff). I mean... Considering we were all just warned about not being too hands on with everyone... I know he probably did it in more of "fuck Covid-19" way and to probably try not to cause panic, but still. Just hit a lot of people now because of it.

Considering he was one of the first people to advocate stopping March Madness and the likes, that's really something if he's caught it. Hopefully just a regular cold.

Well, kid getting it sucks, but I mean, fan thing, I'm not going to blame him on that.



Woj is admitting it is a good thing that the Jazz don't/can't get back together because Rudy and Donovan now have a strained relationship and Rudy's got a strained relationship with the team because of this.

Dude's getting traded in the offseason, if he can't patch up with Donovan. Which I don't think is going to probably happen.

Zion says that he's going to personally cover the salaries of everyone who works at Smoothie King Center for the next 30 days.

Big move, got alot of respect for Zion now.

(and yeah, it should probably be the owner covering the salaries not Zion)

It is insane that a 19 year old is doing that instead of the owner of the team.

That’s crazy but makes me like him more.

I saw Kevin Love pledged $100,000 yesterday to help Cavs employees and arena staff impacted too.

I usually cannot stand Robert Sarver, the Suns owner, but he has been one of the handful of team owners that has publicly pledged to pay employees during all this.

It shouldn't be the players doing stuff like this for the staff when it is the owners who can bite the damn bullet as they are worth more. I'm thankful that they (the players) are doing it though.

In another nice story, The Staples Center is donating the 7,000 pounds of food it would have used for concessions for Lakers/Clippers/Kings games this month to a couple Los Angeles homeless shelters.

If that happens the Hawks CEO's proposal of a Mid-December start for next year will probably happen.

Honestly seems like they are looking into everything and literally anything now that this has happened.

I feel like Brooklyn was one of the teams that had not been in contact with potential cases.  I feel the three teams were Lakers, Nets and Rockets.  I know I posted it somewhere.  It could just be them being back in New York, which has now taken the lead in cases in the US.  And a place like Brooklyn is a more packed area.

Sure this won’t give you any peace of mind but hoping you are safe.

Brooklyn Nets opponents last two weeks were Lakers, Grizzlies, Spurs, Bulls, and Celtics.

If Marcus Smart got infected, I'm going to go down to Brooklyn to throw some punches.

Also will our Jim Boylen jokes be more or less funny in retrospect if he contracts COVID 19?

:o

Too soon, CJ!

But seriously though (Lance Storm TM), reports are saying they got tested Saturday and it's likely that they got it sometime when they were traveling from their game against the Lakers last Tuesday to their canceled game against The Warriors in San Francisco.

Two unnamed Lakers also have it.  Both players are asymptomatic.

The Lakers have been posting highlights of their games against various teams for most of the last week or so.

I don't want to post the instagram because that won't go through, but...

Yeah, Smart announced yesterday he’s been negative for a few days.  Christian Wood was declared negative now a few days before.

I saw something about Gobert and Mitchell getting clearance from state health officials which I assumed is the same.

Toronto just canceled all public events until June 30th so I think shots of NBA restarting by July are NOT GREAT.
