LeBron James comparing ‘the NBA Bubble’ with Prison
Four-time MVP winner shared his thoughts on leaving for Orlando. In his twitter post, LeBron Wrote “Just left the crib to head to the bubble. Shit felt like I’m headed to do a bid man!”, James wrote on his official Twitter page.”Hated to leave the #JamesGang”.

Damian Lillard also feels the same
James feels that he is heading to prison instead of a world-class facility. Lakers star is not the only one to think of the same. Earlier Portland Trail Blazers star Damian Lillard also shared an Instagram post that was captioned as “ Feel like I’m going to do a bid…. Headed to the bubble”(similar to what LeBron was trying to convey).

NBA Bubble rules
The players have to quarantine themselves for at least 48 hours once they reach Orlando. They will be given permission to join the team in training only after 2 consecutive negative coronavirus tests.
If found negative the player will be allowed and if found positive then the player will have to stay in a separate facility until the player gets healthy.
LeBron faces backlash from fans
Comparing the bubble restart with a prison experience is not right on many levels and it hasn’t gone down well with fans too.

The fact that you’re complaining about this is disgusting. How about all the soldiers who have to say goodbye to their families before DYING overseas defending this country?
That’s it, I’m officially done watching the NBA. Do better LeBron. #Unfollowed.

The facilities that the players will get in the confined area would be the best in the world The isolation of players is only for their good as the coronavirus can be lethal if spread in the facility.
