Joel Embiid doesn’t trust other players to adhere to NBA’s bubble rules in Orlando

He can only speak for himself.

Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid is pretty sure he’ll have no problems following the rules the NBA has set for the bubble in Orlando, but doesn’t trust other players to adhere to the stipulations.

Last month, the league sent players and teams a lengthy handbook in which it outlined protocols for the season’s resumption. DeMar DeRozan has already said it’s been frustrating to read, so he’s probably one Embiid will have to look out for.

The Cameroonian star spoke to reporters on Tuesday and said he’s always inside playing video games anyway, but he can’t speak for anyone else and doesn’t believe they’ll all be following the rules.

He said:

“I look at myself and I’ve been doing this for quite a bit now — six, seven years. Like I said, all I do is play video games and stay in my room on the road, or even when I’m home. Just stay home, play video games, do what I’ve got to do. Just being with my family.

“And obviously we’re all different. Some guys like to go out and some guys like to do stuff, (there are) some guys that like adventure. So that’s the way I’m thinking. I know myself. I know I’m not going to put everybody else at risk, but the question is, is everybody else going to do the same? And just being around this business, I surely don’t think so.

Per Noah Levick of NBC Sports Philadelphia

Joel Embiid previously revealed having put in six days of training a week in anticipation of the NBA resuming. It will be interesting to see how he performs when he returns to the court.
