4. NBA High Fives
It’s very common for NBA players to high-five and shake hands with fans. In fact, because of the contained nature of basketball arenas, it’s easier to get up close and personal with your team. But the coronavirus is having an effect on even this. The NBA has advised players to avoid giving high-fives and autographs.
Players have already started responding to this. The New York Knicks’ Bobby Portis fist-bumped fans instead of giving them high-fives. Meanwhile, Portland’s CJ McCollum has announced he’s taking a break from signing autographs. In sum, it’s something you expect a lot of players will follow quickly.
