No, he’s right. The *Bubble may count historically, but you can’t with a straight face try and compare anything that happened in the *Bubble to any other season. No fans, no travel, no distractions, no home court advantage. The *Bubble deserves the biggest asterisk in the history of sports.


Honestly, in the face of this year's playoffs, which saw drastic injuries to like between 7 and 10 all-star/all-nba level players, I don't get how you can see this. Literally every team the Suns played in the West dealt with a disastrous injury. That Suns squad is absolutely not a finals team lol.

Jimmy didn't play so far out of his level in the bubble it shouldn't be seen as a fluke.



Cmon dude, this is nonsense and you know it. There are injuries every year, some years more than others. There has never been another season with conditions even remotely similar to *Bubble.

And no travel and home court advantage would actually make the basketball more pure....just because it's different mean it is inferior or non canon. I don't think people actually get what the point of an asterisk is for.


:lol: :lol: nice try with the rationalization. There is nothing “pure” about NBA basketball being played with no fans, no travel, no home court advantage, no fans and no distractions. those are conditions that no other player in NBA history has had to deal with. Therefore, you can’t judge anything accomplished in the *Bubble to any other season in NBA history. If you don’t recognize that then it’s obvious who in this discussion doesn’t understand what an asterisk is for.
