Stephen A. Smith: NBA Players Will ‘Struggle’ With No Sex in Bubble

Videos by OutKick

Since the idea of the NBA bubble first started, I wondered about players’ needs and how they would be addressed. I didn’t want to be the first person to say it, but Stephen A. Smith this morning on First Take talked about how players are going to go crazy without the “recreational activities” that they’re accustomed to:

The reaction of Molly Qerim, Jay Williams, and Max Kellerman is very funny. Qerim deadpanning that activities like ping-pong will be enough to distract them was amusing. While family members — and thus wives — will be allowed in the bubble beginning in the second round, it’s about a month in the bubble before that date, and unmarried players are going to have some issues.
