With the whole world on high alert because of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) the North American continent have been very quick in limiting groups/events and whole sporting leagues such as the NBA (National Basketball Association), MLB (Major League Baseball), NHL (National Hockey League), NCAA March Madness, CFL (Canadian Football League), MLS (Major League Soccer) and XFL have all been suspended/shut down due to the rapidly spreading disease. The NBA was the first league to shut down, due to Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert making jokes amidst the spreading disease, including touching the media’s microphones. He also fooled around in the locker room before their game up against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Some sources say Donovan Mitchell, one of the players diagnosed with the COVID-19 virus, reportedly drank some of Gobert’s water pre-game and had gotten the disease. Right before tip-off at 8 o’clock the Thunder medical staff ran onto the court to report that Gobert had been tested pre-game. The tests proved that he had the virus. Then after that, the NBA had shut down, and then the other leagues soon shut down. As of March 18, it has been a week since all sports have shut down. One sports community that has been affected by the Coronavirus closings is the hockey community. The NHL suspended its regular season on March 12. Apart from the NBA, the NHL is still considering having playoffs after the Coronavirus has been controlled. The information regarding which teams will be put into the playoffs or not is still floating as unknown. The Coronavirus has affected so many people and communities, it needs to be controlled. Some notable athletes with the Virus are Brooklyn Nets all-star forward Kevin Durant, Gobert, Mitchell, and a couple players on the Ottawa Senators of the NHL. The NBA and NHL are said to maybe return by mid-late June. The other sports have no timeline yet of return. Some players such as Florida Panthers goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky, Cleveland Cavaliers, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban and Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert have donated money to the part time workers at the venues/arenas as they will not be able to report to work since there will be no games. Some players such as Ja Morant of the Memphis Grizzlies, Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks, and Matisse Thybulle of the Philadelphia 76ers have taken to a social media app called TikTok. Some other NBA players such as Josh Hart of the New Orleans Pelicans and Devin Booker of the Phoenix Suns have passed the time to play video games on streaming sites such as Twitch and Mixer.
