Lakers’ Alex Caruso skipped his sister’s wedding and stayed in the “bubble”
Los Angeles Lakers guard Alex Caruso faced a difficult decision to skip his sister’s wedding and stay with the team on the Orlando campus.
Caruso’s sister Megan (Megan)’s wedding was originally scheduled to take place on July 18. Despite multiple factors (NBA restarts, coronavirus and some ceremonies with more than 100 people held indoors), he still wanted to go.
“Megan people try my best to get close to my first fan.” Caruso told ESPN this week.
Caruso noted that he was supported by Lakers head coach Frank Vogel, vice president and general manager of basketball operations Rob Pelinka, LeBron James and Anthony Davis.
“They all support my decision,” Caruso said. “They also helped me realize how important I am to what we are doing here, now [Avery Bradley] Did not do it, [Rajon Rondo] Hurt his hand. There are some additional responsibilities. “
Despite the support of leaving, Caruso explained why he finally decided to stay on the team.
He said: “If my team doesn’t have a championship title, it’s a team trying to maintain the No. 8 seed. The situation may be different.” “But we worked too hard.”
After talking with Lakers officials, Caruso may have to quarantine for 10 days after returning to the “bubble.”
The missed period may leave him at a loss, and may not even participate in eight “seed games.”
As for the wedding, Caruso’s friends (he and his sister have one thing in common) recorded “basically the whole incident” and sent him a videotape, which he watched in a hotel room when he was free on weekends.
