So far the NBA bubble has gone off with barely a hitch, despite being located in the COVID hotbed of Florida.
Adam Silver and company want to keep it that way.
The NBA has implemented new rules for those who can visit the players once the second round of the playoffs start. Family members are in, but Instagram models are specifically excluded.

Here's who isn't eligible to come into The Bubble as a guest, per memo: "Any individual the player has not previously met in person or with whom the player has had limited in-person interactions.

Last month, an IG model claimed she got an invite into the bubble from a player, likely Clippers power forward Montrezl Harrell.
There have also been reports that a lot of "hot massage therapists" have been making there way in.
