Cleveland Cavaliers star big man Kevin Love sat down recently to give updates on the life inside his organizations practice facilities, and how protocol has changed.
As you know, the NBA along with every other sport (collegiate, pro) has been shut down due to Covid-19 that has forever changed our way of life globally.
The NBA has recently lifted some restrictions on teams allowing their players to enter back onto the courts to begin practicing, and shoot arounds.
Of course, there are restrictions which include one player per basket, some gyms having 4 participants at a time, and the ball boys wearing gloves and masks while assisting the players.
Love who spoke with Yahoo stated,
“Our facility has been really odd because we have to do 1 guy to a basket and we have 4 main baskets at our facility, and everybody is in masks and gloves,It’s really odd to have a rebounder in a mask, in these latex gloves, throwing passes and throwing you a ball. You almost have to put that out of your mind and act like it’s not even there.”For those of you who are wondering, yes Kevin did confirm the organization is disinfecting the equipment thoroughly, while maintaining social distancing.Kevin further reveals how excited he is to get back into the groove of things but did offer his opinion on the way the crowds will look telling Yahoo,
“I can’t imagine what it’s going to be like getting back and playing with no fans or fans kind of scattered out through the arena. It’s going to be really, really odd to see how sports slowly start to roll themselves out, but I think it’s needed.”
