NBA: Oklahoma City Thunder at New York Knicks Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

Oklahoma City Thunder’s Chris Paul is a class act.

According to The Athletic, after the matchup between the Jazz and Thunder on March 11 was canceled due to Jazz center Rudy Gobert testing positive for the coronavirus, Paul wanted to do something beautiful for the Jazz organization.

CP3’s security guard, Gene Escamilla, delivered beer and wine to Jazz players and staff an hour after the game was postponed.

”One of the best things all night was Chris Paul trying to get us some refreshments, which was great,” said Snyder, who had declined to detail the specifics about what was delivered. “That was a nice gesture.”

The NBA hasn’t played a game since March 12.

But the NBA hasn’t canceled the season just yet. According to ESPN, NBA and NBPA officials have been “collaborating in assessing the viability of multiple blood-testing devices for the coronavirus that could provide accurate results within a matter of minutes.”

They hope to develop a process that would “enable the league to track the virus in what is considered a critical first step toward resuming play soon.”
