Steph Curry and the Warriors were not included in the Orlando bubble when the NBA restarted the 2019-20 season. But the two-time NBA MVP has nothing but great things to say about what all parties involved were able to accomplish.
"To know they got through an entire almost three months with 22 teams down there, just all the planning that went into it," Curry recently told Bleacher Report's Scott Polacek. "I told Adam Silver and I told a lot of the NBA staff how amazing of an accomplishment it is to have to go from ground zero and create this bubble and it actually worked.
"Just knowing that they hopefully get to the finish line, it's pretty amazing."
They are close to the end as Game 4 of the NBA Finals between the Los Angeles Lakers and Miami Heat will be played Tuesday night. If the Lakers win and take a three-games-to-one series lead, the season's final game could be Game 5 on Friday night.
Back in late August -- when the playoffs were paused because of players protesting the police shooting of Jacob Blake -- it looked like the remainder of the postseason could be canceled. But a resolution was reached, and play resumed.
"It's just great to know everybody put their heads together. I know how much sacrifice the guys went through when they were down there in the bubble to put basketball back on TV," Curry said. "And, not just that, but what they stood for in terms of social justice and speaking for those who can't speak for themselves and using that as a platform.
"I'm really proud of everybody that had a part in making it happen."
All attention soon will shift to the particulars surrounding the 2020-21 season, as the league and the National Basketball Players Association have a lot of details to iron out.
We still don't know exactly when Curry and his teammates will take the floor for Opening Night. But whenever that does happen, it will be cause for celebration.
