Club Bubble: Maxi Kleber, other Mavs turn NBA quarantine into socially-distanced balcony DJ set

Even NBA players need to find creative ways to get through stay-in-hotel-room orders.

Boredom spurs creativity.

At least, that’s the excuse the Dallas Mavericks may be using while quarantining in the NBA bubble at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort hotel in Florida.

As the players await their opportunity to return to the court, Maxi Kleber, Dwight Powell, and others turned their separate balconies in their neighboring hotel rooms into an impressive DJ set in front of ... the lake their balconies overlooked.

Mavericks players are currently awaiting results for their COVID-19 tests they took upon their arrival in Florida as a part of the NBA’s plan for a safe return to play. Players must test negative for COVID-19 twice, at least 24 hours apart, as part of the mandatory 48-hour quarantine.

Once players are cleared, there will be a three-week window for “training camp” to help teams get back into gear, plus a few scrimmage games before the league starts back up on July 30.

The Mavericks’ first game back is scheduled for July 31 against the Houston Rockets.
