76ers star Joel Embiid said of the NBA bubble at Disney World, “I don’t think it’s going to be safe enough.”

I don’t understand that comment. If it won’t be safe enough, why go?

But however exactly he feels, Embiid looks the part of someone who’d say that.

NBC Sports Philadelphia:

Embiid is listed at 7 foot, 280 pounds. Where did he get a suit so large?

If he desires protection from contracting and spreading coronavirus, the mask is great. If the noted jokester desires laughs, the suit is delivering.

This is definitely better than Rudy Gobert’s attempt at coronavirus humor.
