Sixers star C Joel Embiid told reporters on Tuesday that he is not a fan of the bubble environment in Disney World and actually thought for a moment about not playing. (Derek Bodner on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

Embiid said that he’s not a fan of the bubble because while he might just be playing a ton of video games and be cool with that, he doesn’t trust that everyone else will do the right thing. "I'm not a big fan of the [bubble] idea. But then again, I'm going to do my job. I'm not going to let the city down...I don't like the idea." He talked a lot about getting the chance to compete and not letting his teammates or the city of Philadelphia down. Embiid seems poised to put on some big performances down in Orlando when the season picks back up later this month.
