Giannis Antetokounmpo is doing his part to make sure people who rely on Bucks home games for their income aren't completely left out in the cold. Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The coronavirus outbreak is having a major economic impact on millions of families across the world, and NBA superstars are doing what they can to ease some of that burden for arena workers.

On Thursday, Kevin Love announced that he is donating $100,000 to help Cleveland Cavaliers employees who may not be able to take home a paycheck while the NBA season is suspended. Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo said Friday that he will do the same for game day workers at Fiserv Forum.

NBA commissioner Adam Silver has said he expects the NBA season to continue at some point rather than being canceled, but it is impossible to say when that might happen. Hourly workers could be out of a job for a month or more, and that can obviously be a major burden for the average family.

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban immediately spoke about the need for putting together a program to take care of arena workers when the NBA season was suspended on Thursday, and we fully expect other team owners and players to step up and provide assistance as well.
