Black Lives Matter decals were revealed alongside the NBA Disney World bubble field. The 2019-20 season will resume on July 30.

With the NBA restarting soon, journalists from various media have toured the life of the NBA bubble and the various in-game precautions the League has planned to ensure the safety of players and employees. The league also unveiled the "Black Lives Matter" logo on the game court, indicating support for the ongoing global movement against racism.

ESPN first shared Pictures of the NBA bubble court, Black Lives Matter stickers appearing on the seat. The bank was far from society as well, a notable change that the university posted in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. The traditional seating area for players and coaches has been changed to chairs six feet away.

Another change in the game includes closed radio broadcasts on Plexiglas boards to keep them separate from activities on the field. In addition, the NBA bubble field will be completely surrounded by two large video screens, where live fan images will be shown with different references during the games.

Several NBA players have spoken of protests against racism in the United States. The likes of LeBron James, Stephen Curry  and others have expressed support for the ongoing movement, demanding equal rights for all minorities. Curry and a group of Golden State Warriors attended several protests in the Bay Area. 

Previously, the NBA pledged to use the 2019-20 season resumption as a platform to support the movement. The league also gave players permission to highlight a message against social injustice rather than the names on the shirts. Players are said to be able to kneel down during the national anthem to honor the move initiated by former San Francisco 49ers Colin Kaepernick.

NBA restart schedule

The NBA season will resume on July 30 at the Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida. Despite the increasing number of coronavirus cases in the state, the league remains confident that the NBA bubble will be able to guarantee the safety of the players. Los Angeles Clippers will face Los Angeles Laker's competitors at ESPN Wide World of Sports Arena and will face New Orleans Pelican Utah Jazz at HP Field House on July 30.
