The NBA season indefinitely will allow the team to continue operating on a separate schedule. But with the staff at the stadiums, they will have to be unemployed. Billionaire Mark Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks took action to help the employees.
NBA is delayed because of COVID-19
On March 12 morning, the NBA took extremely aggressive measures to immediately postpone the season because it had the first COVID-19 player, Rudy Gobert, the Utah Jazz striker All-Star.
This move will surely make a lot of changes in NBA 2019-20 in terms of basketball expertise. However, its influence goes even further.
In the teams, everything will still be operated with regular schedules and activities, only suspending activities related to competition.
Dallas Mavericks took action to help the employees
In baseball fields often used to organize matches, thousands of workers will be unemployed, facing the loss of a single source of income to support themselves and their families.
However, billionaire Mark Cuban, Dallas Mavericks owner took the first action to change that and this is also the image that many experts hope to be replicated in other teams.
Shortly after the news of the NBA’s postponement of the 2019-20 season, Dallas Mavericks owner announced that he would guarantee the hourly pay for employees working for the entire time the games were postponed. because of COVID-19.
Mark Cuban said that he had contacted a few field workers and Mavericks members to set the cost to help those who cannot come to work during this time. They are the people who work by the hour and here again and this is their main source of income.
He thinks he will have to do something. Maybe he will ask them to volunteer for a fee or some other way … And he is starting to develop a program for them. There is no news for everyone right now, but it is definitely important to him.
The words of the boss Dallas Mavericks came after professional president Bob Myers of the Golden State Warriors shared the same concern.
Before the entire NBA was suspended, Golden State received instructions to hold games without an audience. This directly affects the staff at the Chase Center gym.
Myers explained that what worries him most is the staff, who are not very well paid but always work very hard in the matches and if someone feels sympathetic, he hopes they will sympathize with him rather than think for him.
With Mark Cuban’s statement, it is likely that Golden State Warriors will do the same to create an opportunity to earn income for their employees.
“This is far more than basketball.”
True to this share, Mr. Cuban’s actions are really meaningful and should be replicated to the entire NBA team.
