The Return of the NBA
I remember on March 11th, the news broke that Rudy Gobert of the Utah Jazz got infected with covid-19, the NBA then suspended the season.

This was the same day that the WHO officially declared Covid-19 a pandemic, Tom Hanks contracted the disease, and Trump delivered an oval office address shutting down travel to and from Europe.
For me, this was the day that me and a lot of other people started to understand the severity of this situation.
It’s hard to believe that was almost five months ago.
Usually, the NBA season should be over by now but last week, the NBA restarted the season after a hiatus.
At first I was skeptical of the new format, but after a week of watching the games, I find the experience is just as awesome.
The players play just as competitively, they’re promoting social justice messages on the court and on their jerseys, and even though there’s no fans, the energy feels the same.
Nonethless, I’m just glad to see basketball back again.
