“It was adventurous for sure,” Holiday said. “There were some ups and down. There were some times where it got kind of hectic there. Zion (Williamson) getting hurt in the beginning. Then the 13-game losing streak. I got hurt for a while. But all in all man, we ended up being in position to make the playoffs. That was something we wanted to do. That was one of our goals. Then the pandemic hit. Just back in the bubble, it’s been an adventure for sure.”

Inside the Grand Floridian hotel, out of the soupy Florida heat, a wave of relief washed over Michele Roberts. For months, Roberts, the Executive Director of the NBA’s players association, worked tirelessly with league officials to piece together its return. Medical protocols needed to be worked out.

I’m at work, I’m doing my job.’”
