The NBA season is set to resume Thursday at Walt Disney World, but a little over 100 miles away at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida, the WNBA season tipped off Saturday.
Under normal circumstances, the NBA and WNBA seasons don't overlap, which usually leads to many NBA players attending WNBA games during what is their typical offseason. But nothing about this season has been typical, so while the WNBA was beginning its regular season, the majority of the NBA was ramping up scrimmage activity in Orlando. Still, multiple players found ways to show love to their WNBA counterparts, including wearing orange hoodies with the league's logo to support the opening of the WNBA season.
