76ers co-owner Michael Rubin and the owner of Fanatics, a top retailer of officially licensed sports apparel, said that he wants to stop the production of MLB jerseys. This is to start producing gown and face masks to donate.

‘Woke up in the middle of the night last week with the idea of converting our @Fanatics factory in PA that makes official @MLB jerseys into a facility that makes much-needed masks and gowns and then donating them to help fight this horrendous virus’, Rubin wrote on his Twitter account. 

He said he has about 100 people working on the production and plans to make one million masks and gowns and to donate them to hospitals and emergency personnel across Pennsylvania. 

Rubin is also the co-owner of NHL’s Devils who was involved in making plans to reduce the pay of certain employees up to 20%. He also expressed his frustration towards co-owner Josh Harris who issued an apology. 

‘To me, if you don’t get something right, the biggest thing you need to do is recognize it and fix it’, Rubin said. 

‘Whether I’m involved or indirectly involved, I screw things up all the time. The most important thing is if you don’t get it right, you’ve got to fix it immediately and I’m proud of the way the organization said. You know what? We didn’t have it right and we’re going to get it right’, he added.

The other challenge for the league is the virus outbreak which forced them to shut down all NBA operations. It was also cleared that there is no guarantee if the 2020 NBA Draft will take place on June 25. Nevertheless, the front offices will still have to prepare for the draft night.
