Sacramento Kings player Richaun Holmes burst the NBA bubble just days after arriving in Orlando … all to pick up a delivery food order!
“I briefly and accidentally crossed the NBA campus line to pick-up a food delivery,” the 26-year-old admitted on Monday.
Anyone who breaks the bubble (after being initially cleared) faces a new 10 day mandatory quarantine … so, once the league found out about his delivery run, it was off to isolation for Holmes.
“I am currently in quarantine and have 8 days left,” Holmes said on Twitter.
“I apologize for my actions and look forward to rejoining my teammates for our playoff push.”
We know what you’re thinking … where did Richaun order the food from?! It better have been worth it!!!
The NBA is trying like hell to keep the bubble safe — all players have a mandatory 48-hour quarantine upon arrival to the Walt Disney World campus in Orlando. Once tests come back negative and they’re cleared to enter, they are forbidden to leave … or else face a 10-day quarantine.
But, Holmes wasn’t the first player to break the bubble rules — Rockets forward Bruno Caboclo also violated the bubble code claiming he didn’t know about the 48-hour quarantine period before roaming the campus, according to ESPN.
Worth noting — the NBA just announced only 2 out of 322 players have tested positive for COVID-19 since arriving on campus … and they have been forced to isolate.
Bottom line — follow the rules so we can have basketball, please!!!
