Udonis Haslem on the possibility of playing in a “bubble”: “There is a part of the mental health of things”
Udonis Haslem spoke of playing in a “bubble” without fans on a possible return to the NBA season.
The Miami Heat veteran believes that the most difficult part of the process will be the mental aspect of the situation.
“If we stay away from our families and all these different things, we have to work through these things,” Haslem told reporters CBS Miami. “There is a part of mental health. You can’t just put boys in a cage, let them out to play, and then lock them up again. It doesn’t work that way. “
On the other hand, he said that if they had to play without fans, “so be it”.
“If we have to play without fans, that’s how it should be,” remarked Haslem. “You’re putting an alpha male in a competitive environment that you know is starting to measure up.”
The experienced Heat striker was among various members of the team who returned to the organization’s practice facility for the first time since the league’s order to close the facilities in March.
