The NBA has delivered on its promise to print “Black Lives Matter” on the game court for the league’s restart in Orlando.
On Tuesday, the league unveiled the new court, giving reporters in the “bubble” a tour. Black Lives Matter is written on the floor in large, glossy black print.

Instead of having game broadcasters at a table on the sideline at center court, they will be enclosed in Plexiglas panels creating separation between them and the players.
The players’ and coaches’ bench comprises dozens of spaced-out folding chairs — each measured to be 6 feet away from the next chair.
The entire court is surrounded by large video screens, where virtual fans and signage like “make noise” — which is usually on a JumboTron — could pop up.
