The veteran gives his thoughts about happenings about himself.
Due to the circumstances, what does your daily schedule look like? Do you practice at all? Marco Belinelli: I have been living in “quarantine” for two weeks now. I’m going out to only take my dog for a walk. We do our grocery shopping online, and I’m working out at home. I want to also thank the Spurs staff, that is absolutely present and read to accommodate our every need, by bringing us food and all the necessary tools to continue our sports routine as much as possible.
He also shares his sentiments in Italy crisis.
What’s the current situation in your city? Marco Belinelli: In San Antonio, until yesterday (18/03) we had about 12 cases, but the numbers are continuously rising. Restaurants, shops, gyms, etc. are slowly starting to close. The situation is really tragic. This virus has been underestimated in all countries since the first moment and immediate procedure wasn’t taken, thinking that it was similar to the flu. Being Italian, I saw all the progress of the virus and the restrictions that have been taken by my country. In the United States, we have been facing this virus for a week.
