The NBA Bubble life is still unknown to a lot of fans and JaVale McGee and Matisse Thybule are doing their best to provide a sneak peek to the fans.
The NBA was suspended on 11 March due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Since then players have found new ways to beat the boring time of lockdown and used it to create something new. Some players like Nikola Jokic and Rajon Rondo have used the lockdown period to get back in perfect shape for the restart.
While a few others like JaVale McGee and Matisse Thybulle have worked on their video making skills and are putting it to good use during their NBA Bubble stay.
NBA Bubble life videos: Vlogger Matisse Thybulle
The rookie guard for the Philadelphia 76ers is using his camera skills to show basketball fans the unseen videos from inside the bubble. The 23-year-old is producing high-quality videos for the fans revealing how life inside the bubble really is.
From a trip on the team bus to the airplane to the facility where players are tested for the coronavirus, Thybulle is covering it all. He is also providing fans with glimpses from the 76ers practice, and tours of hotel and rooms in which the staff and the players are living.
Matisse was skeptical about the presentation of videos
In an interview, Matisse said “I knew there would be a ton of buzz about basketball starting up and that this was something that people would be interested in, But in my mind, I’m like, ‘Am I going to be able to present it to them in a way that’s actually entertaining?’”
The videos have gone viral in no time as his youtube channel has 220k subscribers and the vlogs are also doing a decent job over the internet.

Los Angeles Lakers center JaVale McGee has also followed the footsteps of Matisse by uploading videos showing hotels in which Lakers are staying.
He has also filmed Lakers’ practice and has interviewed his fellow players and staff during the practice session. His youtube channel has garnered over 250k subscribers.
In the bubble, media is restricted to some places but the players have the freedom to move anywhere and this has been used by players to make their quarantine period interesting for themselves as well as for the fans.
