Recently the NBA announced its decision to allow several teams to finish their 2020 season in Disney World’s ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex.
And now, we just found out the NBA players will be permitted to invite family and friends as they advance in the playoffs!
According to NBA analyst, Kevin O’Connor, each team will be able to reserve a block of up to 17 rooms for their guests! Players will be required to pay for the rooms out of their own pockets and any guests they invite will need to self-quarantine for three days before coming to Disney World. Once they arrive, they’ll be tested and must quarantine themselves again for another four days.
