The Day The NBA Shut Down

A year ago on March 11, NBA player Rudy Gobert tested positive for the coronavirus. The news came just as his Utah Jazz team was scheduled to tip-off against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

That game was never played, and the entire NBA season was quickly suspended. A new ESPN podcast documents that day’s developments.

Here & Now‘s Tonya Mosley speaks with Julia Lowrie Henderson, senior editorial producer for ESPN’s “30 For 30” podcasts, including the new episode “March 11, 2020.”
