Brook Lopez explains why players are ‘so blessed’ to have the NBA bubble
Milwaukee Bucks big man Brook Lopez is most definitely a silver lining kind of guy. The 32-year-old veteran has exhibited this endearing trait of his once again in a recent interview, as he discussed life inside the NBA bubble.
There has been no shortage of complaints from some players about the challenges they have been facing while quarantined inside the NBA bubble, but for Lopez, it’s all about seeing the brighter side of things:
“Some people talk about what the bubble is like and it’s a little tough and everything but we are so blessed to be in this situation to be able to come out and all hang out together, be with people we really care for and love and go out and hoop,” Lopez said, via Bucks insider Kane Pitman.
That’s an excellent perspective from Lopez, and one that certainly demands commendation. While other players are crying out loud about their unsatisfactory hotel rooms or the inconvenience of having to wear a face mask at all times, Lopez is just happy to be there.
The 7-foot center obviously loves the game of basketball, and he likewise has the same level of affection for his teammates. He appreciates the opportunity to be able to play again, despite the dire circumstances brought about by the coronavirus pandemic.
It’s not always easy to look on the bright side in such difficult times, but this is exactly what the Bucks big man is doing here. We could all use more Brook Lopezes in our lives.
