The Philadelphia 76ers arrived in Orlando for the 2019-20 NBA restart Thursday afternoon and star big-man Joel Embiid quickly made headlines with his bubble attire.
This get-up needs no intro, take a look for yourself.

On top of the hazmat suit (which we're not quite sure how he got his hands on one so large) Embiid was decked out with his facemask and gloves as well.
Embiid commented on the Walt Disney World Resort bubble earlier this week during a Zoom press conference when he stated he doesn't believe in the restart plan.
“I’m not a big fan of the idea," Embiid said. "But then again, I’m going to do my job. I’m not going to let the city down. I’m going to represent my city, my family, my teammates - that’s what I’ve always done.”
“I know I’m going to do the right things,” Embiid said. "I don’t ever do anything. I only play video games. I’m always home. I don’t do anything. But then again, I don’t trust those other guys to do the same. But like I said, I got to do my job."
Being too careful during this pandemic isn't a thing, so kudos to Embiid for breaking out all the stops.
