During the NBA restart life in the Orlando Bubble was obviously a bit different.

Coaches had the option of not wearing masks, given that everyone in the Bubble was being tested daily and not allowed to leave the Disney campus.

But masks are now a requirement for coaches as the 2020-21 NBA season gets underway.

When Kings head coach Luke Walton let his mask slip while he was giving some instructions during the game, Trail Blazers shooting guard CJ McCollum stepped in.

Coach, put your mask on.

Coach Walton quickly obliged.

A friendly discussion about wearing masks properly from the bench will probably be pretty common in the games to come.

One thing is certain: As the NBA navigates through this 2020-21 season with all of its safety protocols in place, mask talk is fair game.
