Though there was a time the NBA season was in doubt, the Los Angeles Lakers were able to push through and win a championship. The bubble got off to a rocky start for the team as they looked very out of rhythm. Despite that fact, that didn’t stop them from playing hard in every game.
In fact, the Lakers’ style of play rubbed some people the wrong way. The Orlando Magic played Los Angeles in a scrimmage game shortly before the bubble and veteran guard Evan Fournier called the team out for complaining.
“Our first pre-bubble game was against the Lakers, and they complained from the first to the last minute, although it was a scrimmage, no TVs or anything. It’s just how the Lakers approach games,” Fournier said.
