Things Get Awkward On ESPN’s ‘First Take’ After Stephen A. Smith Says NBA Players Will Break Disney Bubble To Go Out And Sleep With Women


Stephen A. Smith is back at again with another classic rant.

When the NBA resumes their season inside the Disney Bubble in July players will be without their wives and girlfriends for about a month until the end of the first round of the playoffs.


Will guests be allowed onto the campus?

Yes. After the first round of the playoffs is completed, each of the eight remaining teams will be allowed to reserve between 15 and 17 hotel rooms for player guests. The number of rooms allotted to teams will be equal to the number of players they have on campus. Players will pay for the rooms of their guests.

To be allowed onto campus, guests will have to self-quarantine for a week, then quarantine and be tested at least every other day for three days in either the home market or outside of the NBA’s campus in Orlando. Anyone who tests positive during this period won’t be allowed to enter the NBA campus.

Upon entry into the bubble, guests will have to quarantine and be tested every day for four days. Anyone who tests positive during this period must self-isolate in league-designated accommodations on the campus.

On Tuesday’s edition of ESPN’s First Take, Stephen A. Smith thinks players are not going to be able to last a month without sex. Smith went on a hilarious rant about players sneaking out of the bubble to get in some “recreational activities” that made everyone on the ‘First Take” set extremely uncomfortable.

Do we really think that the “recreational activities” are what these guys are accustomed to are going to be compromised for three months? I mean, somebody’s got to say it. You really think people are going to be without their wives or their woman?

The issue is you’re in Orlando and for the first month you got to be alone…I’m saying three weeks is a struggle.

I’m telling you they’re going to violate the bubble, you can book it.

Stephen A. defended his rant on Twitter.

Molly Qerim’s reaction says it all.
