At last, we're beginning to have some semblance of basketball back in our lives.
NBA practice facilities started to reopen on Monday, and a few Boston Celtics players immediately took advantage of their access to the Auerbach Center. Gordon Hayward, Jayson Tatum, and Romeo Langford were among the C's spotted getting some work in.

We still have to wait a while longer before we watch actual NBA games, but it's better than nothing.
When the NBA does return, there will be 22 teams competing for the remainder of the season. The league's proposed resumption date is July 31.
