Giannis’ Bubble Thoughts Should End Any NBA Negativity
For the first week of the NBA Bubble, people acted like it was the worst thing ever for players. Rajon Rondo complained about his room. Serge Ibaka looked like he was doing the most disappointing episode of MTV Cribs. Troy Daniels showcased the food that wasn’t truly the food. Many outsiders wondered what the NBA did to these guys in a classic player empowerment move. Giannis Antetokounmpo’s comments yesterday about his hotel room should make all players take a second and realize that this isn’t the worst thing in the world. Giannis doesn’t always speak up but when he does, it is usually meaningful.

Look, I understand that change sucks. It is not fun. I hate change. Most people do. Therefore, the NBA players got their lives uprooted to be in one city and do one thing in a small area. That’s tough. But it does seem like most players are adapting. They’re doing things like fish, golf, play ping pong, and many other things to pass the time. It is not like the NBA gave them a blank canvas and said it’s basketball or nothing. Hopefully, the Giannis comments are the final nail in the coffin among players’ complaints.
Basketball is getting closer and closer to its return. All things seem to be running as they should and I cannot wait to have the Bucks back in my life.
