The NBA bubble in Orlando has been a success story so far. But how many courts are available inside the bubble in the Disney World campus.
The NBA pumped in $160 million to create the bubble in Disney World, Orlando. The bubble has twice the size of Manhattan and the vast campus was one of the major factors for the league to camp inside the Disney World.
But the most important requirement alongside the living conditions are the conditions and quantity of basketball courts in the bubble. The league officials were pretty satisfied with the availability of regulation sized basketball courts in the bubble. But how many basketball courts are present in the bubble?

The practice courts for the players have been laid out by the respective hotel venues. The players and staff for all the 22 teams are staying in three hotels in the bubble: The Yacht Club, The Grand Floridian and The Gran Destino.
The league has done a fantastic job in preventing the spread of the virus inside the bubble. Several superstars have praised the safety measures in Disney World. The league has put in some stringent rules in place and has made daily testing mandatory in the bubble. Major credit must be given to NBA commissioner Adam Silver and his officers for organizing the bubble and allowing the season to be resumed without any further obstructions.
