More NBA (table tennis) Updates

(by Steve Hopkins)

The NBA restart is underway, and table tennis side games continue. Most recently, fans were treated to photos of  Dallas Mavericks Luka Doncic and Boban Marjanovic (photo above) making a full size table look really, really small.

 

Not to be outdone, the Utah Jazz posted photos of their team table tennis tournament, showing a number of different players, and brackets identifying 14 competitors.

 

The NBA continues to move forward with their season with strict lockdown rules that are designed to keep the players, staff, and families separated and safe.  The protected area is being called the NBA’s “bubble”.  The NBA released over a 100 page set of health protocols for NBA players and staff – and table tennis is featured prominently.  Since being cordoned off in the “bubble” in early July, photos and videos have been published regularly showing players enjoying table tennis as a part of their relaxation.

Perhaps the most watched ping pong video thus far is the one posted by Utah Jazz point guard Donovan Mitchell which showed off his skills (and a very nice forehand smash) against Small Forward Royce O’Neale.  Over 300,000 people have watched the video – Donovan’s description is “Best ping pong player in the bubble”.

You can watch the full video here on Twitter.
