First Look at NBA Black Lives Matter Courts in ESPN Complex at Walt Disney World
As we previously reported, when the NBA restart beings at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Walt Disney World, the official game courts will have “Black Lives Matter” painted on them. Today, we are getting our first look at the courts thanks to @Malika_Andrews on Twitter.

As you can see, in addition to “Black Lives Matter” being written on the courts, socially distanced chairs have been set up to act at the bench for each NBA team.
NBA teams arrive at Walt Disney World earlier this month and resume their season. They are staying at one of three Walt Disney World Resort Hotels including the Gran Destino Tower at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort, Disney’s Beach Club Resort, and Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort.
While exhibition games have begun this week, the official NBA regular season restart games will begin on on Thursday, July 30. The rest of the season will consist of each team playing eight regular season games. From there, the playoffs will begin and then the NBA Finals will begin mid-September with the season coming to an end around the beginning to mid-October.
While NBA players and staff are inside the NBA “Bubble” at Walt Disney World, several health and safety precautions have been implemented including frequent COVID-19 tests. As of yesterday, it was reported that no players tested positive for COVID-19 since July 13.
