Jerseys from the opening games of the historic restart inside the “bubble” in Orlando, FL earlier this summer continue to roll through the NBA Auctions platform.
The blue Dallas Mavericks jersey worn by Luka Doncic during the team’s first game after the league halted play due to COVID-19 in March sold for $45,020 in the most recent sale. Doncic wore the Statement Edition jersey during the Mavericks’ 153-149 loss to the Houston Rockets on July 31 and during the Mavericks’ 117-115 loss to the Phoenix Suns on August 2. He recorded a Triple-Double in the Houston game.
Rookie of the Year Ja Morant’s first resumption jersey netted $27,300 while the white Indiana Pacers jersey worn by T.J. Warren in the much talked about game in which he scored a career high 53 points went for $5,353.
Dozens of other jerseys from the first games in the restart are on the block now including those worn by the Jazz, Clippers, Celtics, Thunder, Blazers, Sixers, Kings and Wizards, with auctions set to close next week.
All proceeds from opening weekend of the NBA 2019-20 season restart will be donated to the Players’ Justice Fund, which will be administered by the National Basketball Players Association Foundation.
