The passing of Kobe Bryant was a huge loss to the NBA and community. Now, with the season on hold due to COVID-19, we take this time to reflect. Players and fans are responding to these hardships in inspiring ways, choosing to extend gratitude and support to one another.
Kevin Love, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton, Zion Williamson, Blake Griffin, and Rudy Gobert have personally pledged to help pay wages of arena employees who are out of work because of the shut down.
A leader in the league, Lebron James has shown all his life that he is committed to supporting those in need. Through his I Promise school and countless other efforts to give back, he has shown the world that it is not just about basketball. To partner with him, proceeds from this tee will benefit The Lebron James Family Foundation.
These challenging times have provided clarity about the league. It's a family, it's about connecting with others, it's offering hope to those who are suffering--it’s bigger than basketball.
