Tobias Harris and Boban Marjanovic have been reunited. Sort of.
The two old friends are both staying at the Grand Floridian Hotel in Disney World for the NBA's planned return. That doesn’t mean they’re permitted to socialize just yet.
The Sixers arrived in Orlando on Thursday and players remain quarantined in their rooms for the time being. The team’s first practice is scheduled for Saturday.
Friendship finds a way, though.
Although Harris is apparently a bit jealous of Marjanovic’s new friends on the Mavericks.
He had an amusing response Friday morning to a video of Marjanovic palling around with star point guard Luka Doncic.
I found my quote y'all.....
"Starting today, I need to forget what's gone. Appreciate what still remains and look forward to what's coming next." https://t.co/yW9OCRgJk7— Tobias Harris (@tobias31) July 10, 2020
A few weeks ago, Harris had forecasted this very situation.
“I know Boban will be trying to communicate with me and trying to link up,” he said to Ernie Johnson in an interview for the "NBA Together" series. “I’m going to have security make sure he’s not able to talk to me.”
Along with the Mavs and Sixers, the Thunder, Rockets, Nets, Pacers, Grizzlies and Magic are the other teams staying at the Grand Floridian Hotel. There should be opportunities down the line for socializing that don’t involve conversations that are quite as long-distance, as long as everyone stays more than six feet apart and follows all health and safety protocols.
