With the Miami Heat being idle during the NBA suspension of play, they have to find ways to stay calm. It also helps that they are still finding ways to connect.
With Miami Heat and NBA basketball everywhere at a standstill due to coronavirus, we all have to find constructive ways to manage our time. While many of us have dove headfirst into Netflix or classic sports, others are finding many other ways to keep themselves occupied during this great time of uncertainty.
We, as the general public, aren’t the only ones who have had to find other ways to take up our time or to cope with the situation though. Some have to go even greater lengths than just coping though, while some are relishing in the opportunity. Here are a few scenarios on how members of the Miami Heat are dealing with the suspension.
While Goran Dragic has done it all from playing around with a soccer ball in his yard to playing dominoes, he has also had to deal with the uncertainty of having dual residences. As his home country of Slovenia instructed all it’s citizens to return home from abroad, Dragic has made it known that Miami is his home too and that he will be staying put.
Other members of the Miami Heat have found other ways to cope with the suspension. One member in particular, Jimmy Butler to be specific, has begun a routine that is more in his vineyard, shall we say. When asked about what he’s been doing to keep himself busy, this is what he said.
Jimmy isn’t the only one seemingly enjoying his home life though. Miami Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra is taking on a more hands-on approach to the suspension as well. He is sort of having an eye-opening experience in these times, see for yourself with this quote from a piece by Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel.
We’re very fortunate to be living in South Florida, where you can be outside every afternoon. I’ve certainly spent more time in the swimming pool in the last 10 days than I had probably in the last 10 years, without a doubt. That’s probably a wake-up call for me.
No matter how they are doing it, we are just glad that everyone is finding safe and productive ways to do so. We wish the same for everyone else out there. That’s the best thing we can do in times like these.
