The NBA is set to resume next month in Orlando, where 22 teams will gather to finish the 2019-20 season and crown a champion.
Training camps are expected to begin July 9, with games returning July 30.
Designing one central location where the league could stage games and house the players to ensure the safest environment possible amid the COVID-19 pandemic was not an easy process.
On a conference call Thursday featuring NBA commissioner Adam Silver, NBPA executive director Michelle Roberts and NBPA president (and Oklahoma City guard) Chris Paul, two young Boston Celtics stars received a special shoutout for their efforts in the league’s return process.

The Celtics are one of 22 teams traveling to Walt Disney World Resort in Florida to play eight more regular season games (also known as «seeding games») and a normal four-round playoffs.
The remaining regular season schedule for the C’s and the other teams will be announced Friday night at 7 p.m. ET.
