LeBron James says he starts shaking and gets PTSD every time he thinks of it being the second NBA bubble.
The NBA is not exempt from testing positives for its players for COVID-19 as the first wave of positive tests have officially impacted the NBA. The Philadelphia 76ers, Chicago Bulls, Boston Celtics and Dallas Mavericks are among the teams that have halted their game.
Players like Seth Curry and Jason Tatum have been placed under 10-14 days of quarantine. With COVID-19 slowly creeping through the NBA locker room, the NBA will have to consider several options for how they might view the situation.
One idea that is floating on social media is that the NBA takes a 2-week hiatus from the game. Another one that is likely to fall short yet will be another NBA bubble.

Lebron James is not a fan of being another bubble
The NBA had such a successful NBA bubble last year. The goal was to officially declare the 2020 champion; Which he did with LeBron James and the Lakers won it all. However, when asked about the possibility of another bubble, LeBron James said,
“Well the bubble was a success from a performance standpoint. I didn’t think much of the bubble after I left. Every time you ask me about bubble you keep giving me PTSD. I started thinking about 96 straight nights at that place. “
LeBron, talking about new restrictions.
“You asked me about the bubble, and I started jerking off, thinking of 96 straight nights at that place.”
So yeah, I don’t think players are signing up again any time soon.

The bubble was harsh on many players as they were isolated from family and loved ones. As the bubble went, the NBA allowed players to bring a limited amount of family members.
