Hawks star Trae Young reminds fans to practice social distancing, stay active amid coronavirus crisis
Atlanta Hawks star guard Trae Young is reminding all NBA fans to exercise social distancing, wash their hands as often as possible, and remain active amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Like most of us, Young is at home, following the advice of medical experts that the best way to contain the virus is through social distancing. However, the Hawks All-Star wants everyone to stay active in both mind and body despite the self-isolation.

As the season is suspended indefinitely, players have come up with their owns ways to be productive. Some have been wisely spending time with their families, while some have flocked in front of their computers and gaming consoles to catch up on their favorite video game. Meanwhile, others have opted to get some work in either in their home gyms or in the team’s practice facility.
At this point in time, NBA owners and executives are coming up with possible scenarios for the 2019-20 season. After all, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has recommended a postponement of events of 50 plus people for the next two months.
In response to this, the NBA is reportedly looking at the resumption of the season mid-to-late June with no fans. As such, they are scouting for possible arena dates all the way to August.
But then again, this option is viable only if the coronavirus has been successfully contained. Until then, the general public is expected to abide by the medical experts’ advice of staying at home.
As for Trae Young and the Hawks, they have a slim chance to make the playoffs this 2019-20 with their 20-47 record in the Eastern Conference. However, they would certainly want the campaign to resume, especially with the spectacular individual run that Young was having before the league declared a hiatus.
