On Friday, Giannis Antetokounmpo announced that he and his family will donate $100,000 to employees at Fiserv Forum, where the Milwaukee Bucks play their home games.

"It's bigger than basketball!" Antetokounmpo tweeted. "And during this tough time I want to help the people that make my life, my family's lives and my teammates lives easier. Me and my family pledge to donate $100,000 to the Fiserv Forum staff.

"We can get through this together!"

Kevin Love made the same commitment on Friday, donating $100,000 to staff members at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse, where the Cleveland Cavaliers play their home games.

Love responded to Antetokounmpo's tweet, saying: "Love This!!! Take care of the people who take care of you!!!"

Both donations come in the days following the announcement that the NBA will suspend the 2019-20 in response to the coronavirus pandemic. As a result of the suspension, arena employees won't be able to work.
