As many Basketball fans know, the NBA is back, but in Orlando, at Disney World. So far, many players/teams have changed. TJ Warren, forward for the Indiana Pacers has shown that cash considerations in a trade for him was was bogus as he leads the NBA Bubble in scoring. Lebron has showed what 17 years of hard work in the NBA can do. Mattise Thybulle, Javale McGee, and Troy Daniels is every NBA fans favorite players right now because of their “Bubble Vlogs”. Giannis has became more and more of a 2-way Beast. Luka Doncic, is just being your typical 20 year old, putting up triple doubles and double doubles like it’s easy. The Phoenix Suns being 7-0, Devin Booker showing the world why he’s the real deal out in the Desert. Damian Lillard, Paul George, and Patrick Beverly going at each other over social media. Overall the bubble has been fun, and we haven’t even finished the season. Don’t forget the Virtual fan Paul Pierce.
We can firmly say, the NBA is showing what it is like to play in a Bubble, as they are making it fun to watch basketball this season again. Especially with the platforms the players are using to show their opinions on the events happening in the United States these days.
As of right now, August 9, 2020 the NBA still has it’s season until August 14, 2020. The Eastern Conference playoff matchups have been decided, but the Western Conference is having a chase for 8th place. As the Portland Trail Blazers, Phoenix Suns, San Antonio Spurs all trail the current 8th seed Memphis Grizzlies. If their is less than 4 games separate between the eighth and ninth seeds there will be a play-in tournament. That tournament will require one win for the eighth seed to qualify and the ninth seed to win twice to qualify. As of right now, the NBA bubble is currently living up to the hype, and I can speak for all NBA fans saying we love the Bubble.
