Bubble wrap: What we learned from the 2020 NBA playoffs
That’s a wrap! It took 355 days from Opening Night back on October 22, 2019, but the NBA has finally, and impressively completed its 2019-20 season, crowning the LA Lakers as champions. In the Association’s craziest season, during the craziest year in recent memory, the NBA was able to successfully complete its season despite having a pandemic shutdown from mid-March to the end of July and having to complete the season in a bubble in Orlando with no fans, no families and a number of health-related restrictions. Everyone working in the league should be proud of what they were able to accomplish in Orlando. And, as fun and memorable as the bubble was the past three months – and we’ll get to all that below – here’s hoping we never have to go through a year quite as challenging as 2020 has been and are never watching an NBA Finals inside a bubble ever again.
