Kelly Oubre Jr. of the Phoenix Suns inadvertently may have gotten Rashaun Holmes in trouble in the Disney bubble.

Oops. In a genuine effort to be helpful, it looks like Kelly Oubre Jr. may have contributed to getting former Phoenix Suns center, Richaun Holmes in trouble within the Disney bubble. Holmes is now in a 10-day quarantine after stepping outside the NBA boundaries to pick up food.

His public message reads as follows:

"“After the initial quarantine period, I briefly and accidentally crossed the NBA campus line to pick up a food delivery. I am currently in quarantine and have 8 days left. I apologize for my actions and look forward to rejoining my teammates for our playoff push.”"

What may have influenced this poor decision? I present to you an NBA bubble story in two parts:

Oubre may have gotten former Phoenix Suns center, Holmes, in trouble.

Oubre tweeted at all his “NBA bros” that Postmates delivers to the hotel, you just have to go meet the delivery person at the hotel entrance.

It looks like Holmes stepped a little too far outside the hotel entrance to meet his delivery guy.

Oubre has since deleted the tweet, but his follow-up one tells the rest of the story. It simply reads, “Nevermind lol.”

There have been a few tweets from players in the first few days of arrival (during the quarantine period) complaining about the food. Pictures show trays similar to that of what you might find on an airplane.

Then again, lately, there have been photos sent out showing trays of tomahawk steaks and lobster, so something tells me these guys are doing okay.

The NBABubbleLife account who tweeted out the side by side shot is worth a follow for a compilation of players’ bubble footage. However, don’t expect to see much from the Phoenix Suns. They have been very quiet when it comes to social media at Disney, so much so, the aforementioned account called them out.

The Suns clapped right back with a series of photos showing players working out (apparently in the dark) with the caption, “Sorry, we’re busy working.”

I guess Monty Williams wasn’t joking when he said they were going to be strictly business in the bubble. Not only have they forgotten about Mickey Mouse, but they’ve also forgotten about fishing, ping-pong, cornhole, and golf as well.

Let’s hope it pays off when the team takes the court in just over two weeks.

Next. Narrowing down which players might have COVID-19. dark
