As we count down the days to the restart of basketball action at the NBA bubble in Orlando, team practices and Twitter timelines are both heating up. With players, staff and coaches all getting more 'me' time than usual in the NBA bubble, many of them are engaging in Instagram live sessions and tweeting more than usual.
NBA Bubble Update: LeBron's cheeky tweet
LeBron James is one of those players whose online activity seems to have risen during his time in the NBA bubble too. The face of the league tweeted out his outrage at people who said he only got top seed in the easier Eastern Conference.
Of course, he's conveniently left out the part where he's yet to appear in a single playoff game. Not that it's any of my business, but you'd expect a 4-time MVP to celebrate more than snagging (almost) a #1 seed, especially in the NBA bubble...

The MVP contender is averaging 20.2 points, 10.2 rebounds and 6.9 assists a game this season and has led the Nuggets to 3rd place in the Conference. He will definitely be a force to reckon with in the postseason.
Doncic, Boban continue their bromance
Boban Marjanovic has been hailed by many of his NBA teammates, including the likes of Marcus Morris, as the nicest human being they've ever met. He had a bromance with Pistons and Clippers teammate Tobias Harris that sent the NBA world into a frenzy. Now he's winning over even more fans in the NBA bubble, this time from the South, due to his relationship with Mavs fans' darling and MVP candidate Luka Doncic.
Boban will forever be treasured by contemporary NBA fans at this rate.
