Scottie 皮蓬, the Hall of Fame forward who played in the NBA for 17 seasons, has been one of the most vocal former players over the last few years. Not afraid to deliver a controversial opinion, much like his contemporaries, 皮蓬 has made frequent appearances on ESPN’s 跳跃.

在接受采访时 商业内幕’s John Lynch, 皮蓬 touched on topics ranging from meditating during the pandemic to teams changing their style of play in the NBA bubble. As one of the ‘old school’球员,他的观点是’t surprising but it’仍然很有启发性。

Regarding his thoughts on the bubble, 皮蓬 makes it clear that he doesn’认为团队正在比赛“NBA basketball” but that they’re playing “pickup basketball:”

好吧,我’我要说实话它’不是NBA篮球。它’不是辛苦的。它’s not the travel. It’s not the fans. It’不是分心。真的,对我来说’的皮卡篮球。它’去健身房。是的,您已经有了您的团队。 ÿ’大家一起练习。但它’更像是一场篮球比赛,因为那里’看台上没有粉丝。因此,不会分心。那里’没有真正的噪音。那里’您知道,对球员没有压力。

皮蓬’因为经常旅行经常被认为是职业比赛中最困难的方面之一,所以这一点当然是有道理的,因为它会在身体和精神上挑战球员。没有粉丝’没有主场优势,所以动荡不安’感觉不那么强烈或无法克服。

缺少球迷也意味着那里’没有人群噪音影响玩家’与教练交流或在地板上交流的能力。没有噪音影响他们的信心或专注于罚球线或关键时刻。

从这个意义上讲,大大减轻了球员的压力,并且比起典型的NBA游戏,它更像是一场皮卡篮球比赛。
