NBA restart: Sneak peek shows 'Black Lives Matter' painted on bubble courts...

•, By Shanna McCarriston

The NBA players and teams are in the Disney World bubble, all COVID-19 tests since July 13 have come back negative and we now have our first look at the NBA bubble court. It's getting real, folks. 

Below are images and videos of the court showing "Black Lives Matter" written on the parquet. 

The NBA and the players have been outspoken in advocating for the movement toward social justice and the end of police brutality.

Some players spent their offseason at protests as civil unrest and calls to action rose in every state. Athletes have also used their social media platforms to demand justice and many are planning to wear social justice messages on the back of their jerseys when the season resumes. 

The NBA writing the message on the court is a reminder of its ongoing stance to create and promote equality, not just in the league, but throughout the country.

The WNBA will also reportedly have "Black Lives Matter" on the court and players will wear warm-up shirts that read "Say Her Name."
