Kevin Love is putting his money where his mouth is.
In a move that was brought up by Dallas Mavericks Mark Cuban on Wednesday night, the Cleveland Cavs big man is making sure the people who work in the Cavs’ arena are well taken care of as they find themselves without work for the foreseeable future.
The Cleveland Cavaliers forward is pledging $100k to help support Quicken Loans Arena staff.
In a post on Instagram he wrote: “Through the game of basketball, we’ve been able to address major issues and stand together as a progressive league that cares about the players, the fans, and the communities where we work. I’m concerned about the level of anxiety that everyone is feeling.”
“I encourage everyone to take care of themselves and to reach out to others in need — whether that means supporting your local charities that are canceling events, or checking in on your colleagues and family,” the Cavaliers forward added.
The NBA suspended the season on Wednesday after Utah Jazz star Rudy Gobert tested positive for coronavirus.
“The NBA is suspending game play following the conclusion of tonight’s schedule of games until further notice,” the statement read. “The NBA will use this hiatus to determine next steps for moving forward in regard to the coronavirus pandemic.”
Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban said he planned to put a package together to for workers at the American Airlines Center.
