PBA players have yet to discover what real life would be inside bubble in Clark, Pampanga.
But when they do adjust to the new environment, it will be business as usual for these players at the Quest Hotel.
Paul Lee of Magnolia and Scottie Thompson of Barangay Ginebra shared their version of “What’s inside my bag” by letting the viewers take a peek of their bubble baggage.
A few days ago, Lee, with the help of his wife Rubie, unboxed his big haul of Nike shoes.
This time around, the Magnolia guard showed his belongings composed of three luggage for his apparel and therapy equipment, three special bags for his 12 pairs of shoes, a box full of food, snacks and spices, and one extra bag.
"Poproblemahin ko na lang 'yung pauwi," Lee said in jest. "Oo, kasi wala na siyang helping hand ," Rubie added.
Thompson, meanwhile, pretty much prepared the same things. But for extra workout, the Ginebra standout brought handy gym equipment such as jumping rope, deflated yoga ball, and yoga mat, among others.
His partner Pau Fajardo helped in preparing three luggage and one gym bag.
"Talagang ang hirap ng buhay OFW," Thompson said. "Malalayo ka sa pamilya. 'Yun nga mga ka-Barangay, para kaming mga OFW kami. Ang daming dala."
"Talagang sacrifice 'yung gagawin namin ngayon. Nandoon na rin kami so susulitin na namin. Ta-try namin yung best namin para makakuha ng panalo sa mga laban na darating," the 27-year-old Thompson added.
Upon arrival at Quest Hotel, players will undergo quarantine in their hotel rooms after the swab tests before proceeding to 5-on-5 scrimmages at the Angeles University Foundation.
