We started the Bubble Blogs series to try and give Lakers fans a taste of what’s going inside the NBA’s bubble at Walt Disney World in Orlando. JaVale McGee one-upped us by making a whole vlog series from inside the bubble called “Life in the Bubble.”
The first episode follows McGee from the moment he arrives to the airport in Los Angeles to when he settles down in his room at the Gran Destino. He probably won’t post an episode every day, especially not when games begin, but if the first episode is any indication of what the rest of the series is going to look like, it will be worth tuning into whenever he does post.
LeBron, AD and Quinn Cook broke 2K
If you loaded up NBA 2K20 and walked around MyPark on Sunday, you may have seen Quinn Cook walking around with his two, very tall friends LeBron James and Anthony Davis. If you were in MyPark on Sunday and didn’t see Cook, James and Davis, it’s not because you weren’t looking hard enough. Due to the overwhelming amount of people that logged on to Cook, James and Davis, NBA 2K’s servers crashed.
Fortunately for them, they were able to get one game in — and even though they lost, James got a cool highlight play out of it, which should at least earn him some Cool Dad Points with Bronny.
Mario Chalmers is ready
It’s been two years since Mario Chalmers has stepped on an NBA floor, and even longer since he was teammates with LeBron James on the Miami Heat. However, that isn’t stopping him from shooting his shot with the Lakers.
On Sunday, when Bleacher Report shared that Rajon Rondo suffered a fractured right thumb on their Instagram, Chalmers took the opportunity to try and take advantage of Rondo’s unfortunate situation.

Unfortunately for Chalmers, the Lakers couldn’t replace Rondo, even if they wanted to, because their roster for the remainder of the season is set. If Rondo decided to leave the bubble on his own terms, then maybe Chalmers could get a call from Rob Pelinka, but there’s no reason to believe that is going to happen. Even if it did, why would Chalmers voluntarily put himself through that again?
