The NBA “bubble” life seems to be going well for the 22 teams at Orlando, Florida, although there were two positive COVID-19 tests and a few other minor mishaps.
Both the Philadelphia 76ers and Mavs are staying at the same hotel at Walt Disney World. However, players from opposing teams aren’t allowed to hang out with each other in the hotel room or gaming room.
The NBA “bubble” games are set to start on July 30. The Sixers and Mavs have clinched spots in the 2020 playoffs, so both teams will use the eight seeding games to knock off the rust after such a long layoff.
Most NBA pundits believe the Sixers have a shot of at least making it to the Eastern Conference Finals. However, if the team doesn’t go on a deep playoff run, Ben Simmons or Joel Embiid could get traded and Sixers head coach Brett Brown could lose his job.
As for the Mavs, there’s not too much pressure on the club. Doncic and fellow NBA All-Star Kristaps Porzingis are making their playoff debuts this year, so most NBA observers aren’t expecting the team to make a serious push for the title for another couple of years.
