With the 2019-2020 NBA season suspended, the league is continuing to impact the world. 18 NBA and WNBA players created public service announcement videos to share health and wellness information about how to reduce the spread of the coronavirus.

The NBA used its digital footprint and powerful voices of teams, players, coaches, doctors, and others across the NBA family to launch NBA Together, a global community and social engagement campaign that aims to support, engage, educate and inspire youth, families, and fans in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

The effort is brought together by four pillars: Know the Facts, Acts of Caring, Expand Your Community and NBA Together Live. Those pillars will amplify the latest global health and safety information, share guidelines and resources, and keep people and communities socially connected through digital tools and virtual events as everyone copes with the impact of the pandemic.

NBA Together will contribute and help raise more than $50 million to support people impacted by the coronavirus and community and healthcare organizations providing vital services around the world, which includes the more than $30 million financial commitment already made by NBA and WNBA teams and players to date.

The NBA launched its Coronavirus Information For NBA Fans webpage to make sure everyone Knows the Facts, which is updated daily with content and links to provide global fans the latest information on developments in their regions and how they can best protect themselves and others from the virus. The site features resources to reduce coronavirus risk with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), former U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy and local and federal health experts.

The NBA and WNBA will continue to use the influential voices of players, coaches and legends through public service announcements to inform fans on the best ways to stay safe and healthy in both their body and mind as the world faces the rapidly changing and evolving pandemic.

Acts of Caring will highlight the power of community and volunteerism by inspiring 1 million big and small acts of kindness. The NBA is calling on players, fans and the general public to share ways they are supporting friends, families, and communities by posting photos and videos with the hashtag #NBATogether on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and TikTok. These acts can include teaching virtual classes, buying groceries for neighbors in need or donating supplies.  Visit cares.nba.com/actsofcaring to learn more.

Expand Your Community is aimed to encourage fans to expand their communities through content, activities and virtual engagement in an effort to stay physically and mentally healthy and active.

This includes the launch of Jr. NBA at Home,” a new interactive content series for young people who are currently unable to play with their friends and teammates, but still want to be active, work on their game and connect with the NBA. The program features at-home basketball skills and drills that promote physical activity and character development and can be completed individually and in limited space. It also includes curated content and messages from NBA and WNBA players to inspire boys and girls around the world to stay active in a healthy and safe way. The program will feature daily posts on the @jrnba social media channels (Twitter, Instagram, Facebook) and NBA digital properties across the globe, and integration with NBA technology partner and mobile basketball training application HomeCourt.

In addition to “Jr. NBA at Home,” the NBA will engage education and wellness partners, such as Scholastic Inc., Discovery Education, and NBA Math Hoops, to promote existing resources for students and parents that have been adapted for at-home learning. NBA personalities and educators will create short virtual lessons that will make learning at home fun.

And in an effort to combat the higher levels of anxiety and stress during these uncertain times, the NBA, in partnership with Headspace, will provide mental wellness and resiliency resources and tools to encourage fans to be mindful of their mental wellness and the wellbeing of those around them.

To keep the community of basketball, the NBA will host NBA Together Live. Every weekday at 3:00 p.m. EST a member of the NBA family will engage with fans globally, participating in a live interview with NBA broadcast talent or taking questions from fans on Instagram live.  Cleveland Cavaliers forward Kevin Love will tip off the series beginning today.  Additionally, every night the NBA will stream classic games on NBA social platforms including Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and Twitch.  Tune in tonight at 8:00 p.m. ET to catch the Feb. 27, 2016 Warriors @ Thunder game.

To further help NBA fans stay connected with their favorite players and teams, the NBA partnered with Turner Sports to offer a free preview of NBA League Pass, the league’s premium subscription-based product, until April 22.  This complimentary offering features access to full length and condensed replays of all games from the 2019-20 season, as well as an expansive archive of classic games and content. Fans can redeem this free offer by signing into their NBA account through NBA.com or the NBA App on iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, Android mobile and tablet devices, Android TV, Amazon Fire TV, Roku, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and other supported devices.

Adding to the movement is Philadelphia 76er All Horford who launched a PSA to the community. The sentiments were echoed by Chris Paul of the Oklahoma City Thunder who also delivered a PSA.
