Danuel House investigated for potential NBA bubble misconduct

Danuel House was mysteriously scratched from a recent playoff game against the Los Angeles Lakers, and today’s details threaten to remove him for the remainder of the series.

Texas A&M standout Danuel House made waves in the NBA bubble for his stark improvement, securing legitimate playoff minutes during a series of intense games against Oklahoma City and the Los Angeles Lakers.

But a mysterious late scratch from game 3 raised eyebrows… and today he found himself in the news for all the wrong reasons.

As always, the memes exploded in the immediate aftermath of this news.

We’ll have to see how this plays out, but even the most generous of interpretations would classify this as an avoidable mistake. When you’ve finally secured an NBA foothold and your play is making waves during the restart… you can’t put yourself in this position. Regardless of what happened.

Hopefully, this is all a big misunderstanding.

College Basketball news has been extremely dry, as can be expected, but I do have one positive to pass along — the NCAA appears committed to an end-of-season tournament in 2021, using the NBA’s bubble setup as a model if necessary.

Stay tuned as the news hopefully turns towards a concrete plan/calendar to bring college hoops back for the 2020-2021 academic year.
