2020 has been terrible for the NBA.
First, former NBA commissioner David Stern passed away as a result of a brain hemorrhage. He was 77.
Then, Lakers and NBA legend Kobe Bryant tragically died in a helicopter crash that also killed his daughter Gigi. It was a very emotional time for the Lakers and the NBA community as a whole.
Now, the 2019-20 NBA season has been suspended because of the coronavirus. Utah Jazz All-Stars Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell have the virus.
McGee and the Lakers have the best record in the Western Conference. If the season is really over, it will be a buzz kill for a Lakers team which might have won the title this season with superstars LeBron James and Anthony Davis leading the charge.
McGee has appeared in 61 games for the Lakers in 2019-20. He’s averaging 6.8 points and 5.8 rebounds while shooting 64.0 percent from the field and 65.3 percent from the free-throw line.
The Lakers lost to the Brooklyn Nets at Staples Center in their last game. LA fans wanted to see this year’s team win the championship for Kobe and Gigi. The coronavirus has really impacted the world more than we could have imagined.
The NBA will likely be on hold for at least the next 30 days. During that time, Lakers and NBA players have been urged to not practice and to stay in their city.
