A single-sitting, page-turning, behind-the-scenes account of the NBA lockdown at Disney World by Jared Dudley of the world champion Los Angeles Lakers.
Omens in China. The tragic passing of Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna. A novel coronavirus and the protests honoring George Floyd and Breonna Taylor. For Jared Dudley and the Los Angeles Lakers, the suspended 2019–2020 NBA season was, from the beginning, about more than winning basketball games. But what now?
This is the year of the Bubble, a vacated Disney World, and the nearly one hundred days that 350 players and personnel from twenty-two NBA teams isolated from their friends and family, testing their patience for a dorm-style solution to America’s lost pandemic sports season—but also inspiring them. In a country violently divided by more than COVID-19, the Lakers rise to the occasion. From initial quarantine to the best basketball ever played by LeBron James and Anthony Davis to transitioning again to the real world, Jared Dudley shares his winning memories of a personal and professional victory from inside the NBA Bubble.
