Now, that's about to change.
The NBA and the WNBA are bringing their players back to the blacktop for an all-out championship.
Eight current and former players will face off at 7 p.m. on ESPN from their respective isolated at-home courts, matching each other's shot.
The event is sponsored by State Farm, and in coordination with the NBA, they are together donating $200,000 on behalf of the players to charities focused on coronavirus relief efforts. This donation is on top of the $74 million already donated by the NBA.
One of the favorites is NBA dunk champion Zach LaVine. Another top contender is Atlanta Hawks guard Trae Young, who sent a friendly reminder to Lavine, tweeting, 'absolutely no dunking.'
