Storyline: Coronavirus
The Miami Heat were at least able to pick up some sort of victory while the NBA is suspended due to the coronavirus outbreak. On Saturday, Heat forward Meyers Leonard led his team to a victory in a Call of Duty tournament for NBA players. The match was broadcast on Twitch, a live streaming platform for gamers. Leonard teamed with NBAers Donovan Mitchell, Zach LaVine, Mario Hezonja and high school player Bronny James, son of LeBron James. They defeated a team comprised of Josh Hart, Ben Simmons and Royce O’Neale and high school player Terrence Clarke.
Miami Heat center Meyers Leonard is participating in FaZe Clan’s #FIGHT2FUND charity pro-am in Call of Duty: Warzone today, and ESPN has an inside look at his gameplay straight from Twitch. Other NBA players and pro athletes including Ben Simmons, JuJu Smith-Schuster, Evan Engram, Josh Hart and others are taking part in the tournament, which also features professional esports players from FaZe Clan.
