Cleveland Cavaliers thank fans amid coronavirus pandemic

The Cleveland Cavaliers took to Facebook on Tuesday to thank fans for their support amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

CLEVELAND — It's been more than two months since the Cleveland Cavaliers last played in an NBA game.

But while the future of the 2019-20 NBA season remains in question, the Cavs greeted their fans with a surprise on Tuesday, posting a video featuring a series of messages from players and team personnel to the team's official Facebook page.

In the video titled "In This Together," players including Kevin Love, Matthew Dellavedova, Collin Sexton, Larry Nance Jr. and Cedi Osman can be seen thanking Cavs fans for their support amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The video also features appearances from general manager Koby Altman, head coach J.B. Bickerstaff and assistant coach Lindsay Gottlieb, as well as broadcasters Austin Carr and John Michael.

A special message from the Cleveland Cavaliers ❤️

On March 11, the NBA suspended its season indefinitely after Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert tested positive for the coronavirus. In the time since, players including Jazz All-Star Donovan Mitchell, Brooklyn Nets superstar Kevin Durant, Boston Celtics guard Marcus Smart and members of the Lakers have reportedly tested positive for the virus.

Over the course of the last few weeks, NBA teams and the league's Players Association have exchanged ideas for resuming play. No proposals, however, have been agreed to as the league continues to consider the safety hurdles it would need to clear to create a safe environment.
