Philadelphia 76ers star center Joel Embiid is not taking any chances, as he arrived for the flight to Orlando in a full hazmat suit, gloves and mask.
On July 7, Embiid voiced that he “hated the idea” of the NBA “bubble”, but explained why he decided to play.
“Unfortunately, I’m not a big fan of the idea,” Embiid said. “But then again, I’m going to do my job. I’m not going to let the city down. I’m going to represent my city — that’s what I’ve always done — my family, my teammates. The mindset doesn’t change.”
