Chris Paul deserves more credit for NBA bubble, finishing season
It’s been reported that when Oklahoma City’s Chris Paul — the president of the National Basketball Players Association (NBPA) — got to the bubble in Orlando, he cried. Paul had spent so many hours and so much effort to see the NBA season continue, he broke down when he saw that dream become a reality.
Usually, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver gets the bulk of the credit for the NBA restart bubble in Orlando — where there were zero positive tests (there were positive tests from Disney staff outside the bubble serving the players — but as Marc Berman got a source to say to the New York Post, CP3 deserves credit for getting the games restarted after the Milwaukee Bucks led protest.
“Chris saved the season,’’ one NBA source said in referring to the pause of play after the Kenosha, Wis., shooting of Jacob Blake in August.
