Knicks, Nets Team Up to Donate 1 Million Masks to New York City

The New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets teamed up with the NBA and Huang Ping, China’s counsel general, to donate 1 million surgical masks to front-line workers in New York City.

New York has been hit worse than any other state by the coronavirus with over 100,000 thousand reported cases, and a death toll that has just surpassed 4,000.

“This is a big deal and it’s going to make a significant difference for us,” said New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.

Nets ownership is also donating 1,000 ventilators.

“The whole Alibaba Group has really been helping with all the New York City hospitals, sourcing these certified and high quality PPEs. I know they are having conversations with all these government agencies. We all know that he is behind this,” said Nets general manager Sean Marks on Wednesday.

The Alibaba Group, which was co-founded by Nets owner Joseph Tsai, has previously donated 1 million masks and 500,000 testing kits to the city of New York.
