Why Kawhi Leonard isn’t surprised COVID-19 got into the Orlando bubble
Out of the 322 players tested for COVID-19 at Disney World, two tested positive.
Leonard, who arrived at the Disney campus a bit late due to a family matter, is hopeful the 2019-20 season can be completed in its entirety at the Orlando bubble.
“I mean, it’s no surprise to me that somebody got it within the bubble. You bring in so many people from different cities and states, and there’s no control over it pretty much,” Kawhi Leonard told Clippers reporters, via ClutchPoints’ Tomer Azarly.
“But I think we’re doing the best that we can. The NBA put together this process, this quarantine, and we’re doing everything under the guidelines of testing every day, trying to keep ourselves socially distant from everyone. But who knows, I mean, what’s going to happen. All we can do is try to stay optimistic about it and positive, and hopefully we can finish this season.”
It’s going to be interesting to see if the NBA can pull off the bubble games. Leonard and the Clippers are hoping so since the team has a legit chance of winning its first title in franchise history.
Before games were suspended in March, LAC had the second-best record in the Western Conference standings. With Leonard and fellow California native Paul George leading the way, the Clippers are looking forward to the start of the 2020 playoffs and going on a title run.
