Pacers’ Malcolm Brogdon expresses support for bubble amid criticism
Some NBA players have readily criticized the league’s “bubble” in Disney World in Orlando, Fla., feeling it is not up to their living standards. But despite some of those voices, there are players who support the bubble system.
Indiana Pacers guard Malcolm Brogdon, who tested positive for COVID-19 in June, is recovered and now in the bubble. He expressed support for the bubble via Twitter and thanked those who are working to keep it going.
The bubble has been good to me! I know there are so many people risking their health to pull this off and your hard work has not gone unnoticed!

In addition to basketball players and team officials, there is plenty of staff from Disney World working to make the environment go. That includes numerous hotel staff workers performing roles such as cleaning and cooking for the players.
Brogdon is in the first of a four-year deal with Indiana that pays him over $84 million. He’s averaging 16.3 points, 4.7 rebounds and 7.1 assists per game this season.
