With the second round of the NBA Playoffs, players are permitted to welcome select numbers of family and friends into the league’s Disney World bubble.
That’s made for some heartwarming moments of families reuniting. And we might have a new favorite.
Joakim Noah, everyone:
Though he hasn’t seen game action since Aug. 19, Jo is in the bubble as a member of the Los Angeles Clippers, who Thursday night took a 1-0 lead over the Denver Nuggets in the Western Conference semifinals.
As of this writing, Five Thirty Eight pegs the Clips as having the best percentage chance (32%) of winning the NBA Finals out of teams remaining.
Should Jo find his way to his first ring, his family will be there to see it. And isn’t that all that matters?
