    Immagine being stuck in a desert with no signal being away from family for months to over a year with your life at risk on a daily basis. Compare that to the bubble at disney world. These NBA players got it good.

    Some guys are good on the court but this guy can give his teammate a boost just being around, respect, you dont need him to play to contribute,

    There was never a time when Steph was better than LeBron James. Come playoff time, LeBron went supersaiyan in the Finals and Curry frequently disappeared when it mattered.

    Why are they acting like the bubble was a tunnel? They were in Florida in Disney by a lake views, golf courses, trees, patios, restaurants and hotels with amazing views of the lake. Why are they acting like they were in jail in the box with no sunlight? They were living in a spot people wish to come for vacations. These dudes are strange.

    Great interview, in all honesty tho, the bubble was some of the best basketball I've seen in years, in terms of play, intensity, attention to detail. I loved it, and that what makes this championship so special. Also, Alex Caruso needs to be the starting point guard as long as he improves his 3 ball.
