Sacramento Kings player Richaun Holmes has burst the NBA's bubble--literally. On Monday, Holmes revealed in a statement that he's two days into a 10-day quarantine after accidentally exiting the league's "bubble" in Orlando to pick up a food delivery order. “After the initial quarantine period, I briefly and accidentally crossed the NBA campus line to pick up a food delivery,” the 26-year-old Holmes explained. “I am currently in quarantine and have eight days left. I apologize for my actions and look forward to rejoining my teammates for our playoff push.” Yahoo Sports notes that Holmes is the second player forced into quarantine for inadvertently breaking the bubble after Houston Rockets forward Bruno Caboclo. It's not clear if either player left the league bubble because they were sick of the bad food players are reportedly being served, which has been compared to airline chow.
