PLAYERS CAN BRING “ESTABLISHED LONGSTANDING PERSONAL FRIENDS” Into the bubble

Ugly-Anna

At the very beginning of teams arriving in Orlando, the weakest link of the entire operation was released. Several outlets reported that Instagram models were invited into the bubble. One of those was Anna Mya, who tweeted this out. 

With the last seeding games being played today, the NBA has already announced the teams that get eliminated will leave the bubble immediately. That creates room for family members and friends to come to stay with the players and staff in Orlando. Every team will get a certain number of rooms to allocate between players and staff. The main "problem" here is - how do you define "friends"?

You can already see single (let's stay at single) NBA players researching legal precedent for "established longstanding personal friends." The league sees them coming a mile away and has defined the term in detail.

The NBA has left itself room to ask players to prove they have a longstanding relationship with a person they want to bring into the bubble if they find it necessary. I don't think the virus knows the difference between a family member or a booty call. If someone is willing to get tested and spend a few days in isolation, it shouldn't matter how longstanding your personal relationship is. 

The only thing left to do is to bet your friends who's going to be the first player to test the limits of “established longstanding personal friends.”
