While the NBA's Orlando bubble seems like a great place to be, Boston Celtics star Jaylen Brown revealed it isn't all it's cracked up to be.
The Disney resort hotels are loaded with activities including swimming, fishing, biking and much more, but players are starting to feel lonely without their families.
Jaylen Brown on mental health for NBA players in the bubble:— Ian Steele (@ISteeleABC6) August 10, 2020
"The images of pool tables and swimming pools and all this other stuff... it's tough being here. Being away from my family. Being isolated from the rest of our society." @ABC6 #celtics @FCHWPO pic.twitter.com/ZRbjhqXUHG
Brown's comments came after he helped lift the Celtics to a 122-119 overtime win over the Orlando Magic on Sunday.
Boston could remain in the bubble longer than many other teams because they have the potential to go deep in the playoffs, so Brown may be waiting a bit longer to see his family. The Celtics improved to 47-23 on the season, which is good enough for the No. 3 seed in the Eastern Conference.
Not only is Brown missing his family, as Jayson Tatum continuously posts photos of his son Deuce, signaling that he misses spending time with him.
If the Celtics make it to the NBA Finals, they won't be headed home until mid-October, which is an extremely long time to be away.
