Ben Golliver and Michael Pina detail the launch of the NBA's Orlando bubble, with Ben reporting live from Disney World as he begins his seven-day hotel room quarantine. They talk through a variety of topics: how to pack for a three-month trip, how to dress for a bubble playoffs, how media members are able to interact with each other, and how the NBA's extensive coronavirus testing raises ethical questions given the state of testing around the country. From there, Ben and Michael name their NBA bubble soulmates, select their favorite player social media accounts to follow, and ponder how Rudy Gobert will be treated by the broadcast media when games return. They close by taking reader questions about the use of the term "stud" and on Stephen Jackson's unfortunate turn.
