5 most common things NBA players are doing in the Orlando bubble

By the looks of it, NBA players seem to be enjoying themselves at the Walt Disney campus in Orlando, Florida.

22 teams are at Disney World, spread out between three glorious hotels. The games are set to start on July 30, so until then, players have some time to enjoy the Orlando campus and its amenities.

With that said, we take a look at the five most common things NBA players are doing at the Orlando bubble.

1. Golfing

NBA players and staffers have access to three golf courses with tee times for foursomes.

Just like Michael Jordan did back in the day with the Chicago Bulls, the players in Orlando are hitting the golf courses and enjoying the sun.

2. Fishing

Everyone knows Los Angeles Clippers superstar small forward Paul George loves to fish, but it looks like he’s going to have some competition on the lakes once the “bubble” games end since everyone seems to be catching fish non-stop in Orlando.

Take a look.

3. Video games

When NBA players first arrived in Orlando, they had to quarantine in their rooms to follow the COVID-19 protocols.

As most NBA fans know, numerous players in the league love to play video games. With that said, a lot of games are being played at Walt Disney World, mostly Call of Duty, Fortnite and various sports games.

4. Cornhole

While wearing masks, NBA players are able to play cornhole with each other.

As expected, most of these guys are really good.

5. Ping pong

Indiana Pacers Hall of Famer Reggie Miller is a really good ping pong player, so is Detroit Pistons point guard Derrick Rose.

However, neither Miller nor Rose are in Orlando, giving other NBA stars a chance to improve their game in case they ever have to play Miller or Rose.

The NBA seeding games will start on July 30. In the East, the Milwaukee Bucks, Toronto Raptors, Boston Celtics, Miami Heat, Indiana Pacers and Philadelphia 76ers have clinched spots in the 2020 playoffs.

The Brooklyn Nets, Washington Wizards and Orlando Magic will battle it out for the final two slots in the seeding games.

Meanwhile, in the West, the Los Angeles Lakers, Los Angeles Clippers, Denver Nuggets, Utah Jazz, Oklahoma City Thunder, Houston Rockets and Dallas Mavericks are locked in the NBA playoffs. The Memphis Grizzlies, Portland Trail Blazers, New Orleans Pelicans, Sacramento Kings, San Antonio Spurs and Phoenix Suns will jostle for the eighth seed during the seeding games.
