Orlando Bubble Playoffs Criticized By Former NBA Coach


ORLANDO – Two years ago, the Orlando Magic together with 21 other NBA teams, traveled to Orlando to compete in an NBA event unlike anything ever done before in sports history.

With the COVID-19 pandemic impacting the world, the season was suspended in early March 2020 and there was serious doubt if the season could be accomplished.

After a protracted negotiation process between the players and governors, the 2 sides agreed to play the rest of the season, including the NBA Finals, in a “bubble” at Disney’s Wide World of Sports just outside of Orlando.

This meant no fans, no outside contact and no homecourt advantage throughout the playoffs.

And ever because the starting, there have been many critics in regards to the form of the tournament. The critics can add former NBA Coach of the Yr George Karl to their club.

Karl, 71, coached within the NBA across 4 a long time and last coached the Sacramento Kings in 2016. His longest coaching tenure got here with the Denver Nuggets from 2005-13, and he still supports the team from a distance.

One among the highest replies to Karl’s tweet got here from a Lakers fan, who pulled out some receipt tweets from the previous Coach of the Yr in the course of the Bubble playoffs.

In the highest tweet, Karl says he hates the Lakers, who beat the Nuggets in five games within the Western Conference Finals to advance to the NBA Finals and won the championship. 

Perhaps that is why Karl is not a fan of the bubble playoffs.
