NBA Restarts Season While Other Leagues Ponder…

The NBA is back Thursday with a pair of games. The New Orleans Pelicans play the Utah Jazz and Los Angeles' crosstown rivals, the Lakers and the Clippers, will face off.All games will be played in neutral territory at Disney's ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex near Orlando. Twenty-two teams are returning for eight regular season games before the playoffs tip off in mid-August.The NBA has had zero positive tests among the 350 players tested since July 20. But Commissioner Adam Silver says he's watching what's happening in baseball right now and knows his league needs to be ready."If we had any significant spread whatsoever, we would certainly stop immediately, "Silver said. "And then we would investigate immediately and determine whether we could move forward."The NBA has been praised for its "bubble" concept, which isolates players and staff to the Orlando complex in an effort to prevent exposure to coronavirus. The NHL is also doing a bubble in two Canadian cities, Toronto and Edmonton. And the WNBA is playing in what the womens basketball league calls its "wubble" in Bradenton, Florida. One public health expert notes these leagues are getting something else right: oversight of activities outside of games and practices as well as extensive testing with a fast turnaround."With that kind of testing, I think what you're then looking for is, are you catching cases when they're just one or two, single-digit type of cases? Are you able to quickly isolate? And if you're able to quickly isolate and contact-trace, and as long as you're sort of consistently keeping those one or two cases from turning into five, six, seven or eight I think I would feel OK about that," said Dr. Kathleen Bachynski, an assistant professor of public health at Muhlenburg College.Meanwhile, ESPN reports baseball is tightening its rules after an outbreak with the Marlins organization caused multiple game cancellations. According to that report, players will now be required to wear surgical masks while traveling and every team must have a compliance officer. Unlike the NBA, NHL and WNBA, baseball is operating a regional travel schedule, which has raised concerns about virus transmission.

College Basketball Star Now Making Moves in the…

There aren’t too many young male artists involved in quilting, but that’s been the path for 26-year-old Michael Thorpe. Thorpe is an exciting new artist who is making large-scale quilt portraits using techniques he learned from his Mom, a lifelong quilter. His works are bright, bold and provocative, and they have grabbed the art world's attention. After popular gallery events, Thorpe's first museum showing will be at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston where they are excited to display his unique and thought provoking artistry. "I was an oddball, I mean, you probably don't know a male quilter unless you're in the industry, but there aren’t a lot of male quilters and then Black male quilters, it gets really slim," Thorpe, a photographer by training, says of his pursuit of quilting. Thorpe looked to other Black artists for inspiration and discovered Jean-Michel Basquiat who influenced his early quilts, which are abstract and bold. In addition to being a talented artist, Thorpe is an athlete who was a 4-year starter and 1,000 point scorer at Emerson College. Some of the inspiration for Thorpe’s work is his upbringing and his love of basketball and its culture. His portraits of famous basketball players and family members are some of his most authentic and inspired work. "Biggest thing I realized is that art is all about being authentic. You've got to be who you are,” Thorpe says. "You can't fake the funk." Watch and see how this artist uses images, textures, patterns and colors to infuse his subjects with an energy that pulses from each frame.
