Nuggets coach Michael Malone: ‘Shame on you, NBA. This is crazy. I miss my family’
Families are joining NBA players in the bubble.
Coaches – despite their lobbying – remain isolated from their families.
Nuggets coach Michael Malone sounds fed up.
Kyle Goon of the Southern California News Group:
The NBA isn’t doing this just to be cruel. Limiting the number of people in the bubble is a key way to prevent coronavirus from infiltrating.
However, that’s obviously miserable for the coaches.
Finding the right balance between safety and comfort amid the coronavirus pandemic is not easy.
Coaches have a union, too, though. This seems like a pertinent cause for the National Basketball Coaches Association. Pressure on the NBA – which Malone is applying – could prompt the league to bend.
Silver lining for Malone: The way Denver played in Game 1 against the Clippers, he might get re-united with his family soon.
