NBA players take to gaming in light of season suspension


The coronavirus has brought a halt to the routines of much of daily life throughout the country, including the suspension of all major sports leagues in the U.S and many across the globe. This has led to athletes and teams wondering what they’ll do as they wait for their seasons to resume. The answer for several has been video games. The Phoenix Suns and Dallas Mavericks got creative and took their postponed matchup online as they played NBA 2K on Twitch on Friday.
