Several NBA players will gradually return to their new normality of individual training in the next few weeks, after a two-month hiatus.

At the same time, most NBA athletes were really active off the court during that time, helping their communities in need during the coronavirus pandemic.

Tobias Harris is one of them. “Harris plans to help support 12 families in the City of Philadelphia with mortgage assistance, through the ‘Habitat for Humanity of Philadelphia’ scheme, while providing 250 frontline workers with lunches from Chick-Fil-A, and donating 20,000 children’s books,” according to Sports Illustrated.

“We’re experiencing one of the biggest crises in the history of humankind,” Harris said via Sixers press release, per Sports Illustrated. “Being able to provide kindness to people putting their lives at risk in hospitals and supporting Philadelphia families in dire need of help is an important responsibility for me.”
