NBA’s Virus ‘Snitch Hotline’ Lights Up

The NBA’s move to install a “snitch hotline” sent social media into a spin when it was first announced, but now it’s reportedly getting a working over.

An anonymous hotline was set up for players to report their peers who they suspect may be breaking the rules inside the bubble in Florida’s Disney World.

Several incidents have already raised eyebrows across the board with Sacramento Kings forward Richaun Holmes being forced to isolate for 10 days after leaving the bubble to pick up a food delivery.

Houston Rockets forward Bruno Caboclo also broke the NBA’s safety protocols when he left his room during the initial quarantine period after arriving at the bubble.

Holmes and Caboclo’s transgression come after Instagram model Anna Mya alleged she had already received an invite to Orlando from an unnamed player.

But in a report from The Athletic’s Shams Charania, the hotline has had multiple tips submitted in relation to potential protocol violations.

“Some players have received warnings from violations, sources said, as league ensures social distancing and mask protocols on campus,” Charania tweeted.

The report didn’t sit well with Los Angeles Clippers guard Lou Williams who retweeted the news with a rat emoji.

The NBA season is set to get back underway at the end of July with Brooklyn Nets guard Spencer Dinwiddie laying down the law to his fellow players.

Although Dinwiddie won’t be participating in the league’s restart, he spoke about the rules players should be abiding by in an interview with Bleacher Report’s Taylor Rooks.

“To all my fellow NBA players, don’t call the snitch hotline,” Dinwiddie said.

“Don’t cross the line to get Postmates.

“Don’t fly LA work out.

“And last but not least, the Brooklyn Nets are coming for you.”

After reports emerged the “snitch hotline” had received multiple tips, NBA social media went into overdrive with its collective Detective work in guessing who was behind the calls.

A clear cut favourite emerged in Oklahoma superstar Chris Paul who was repeteadly targeted by fans when the anonymous line was first announced.

  1. I figured so.e of the NBA players where importing food from China, since thats where they will be playing soon if they keep supporting BLM, since they won’t have any American fans.

    We support the NBA because we like to watch sports on TV and in person when possible. Now that the owners let the players, the democratic and BLM dictate to them on how to run their business and have become political I am done with the NBA, NFL and MLB. It will not be watched in this house and it will be difficult to support advertisers who sponsor these organizations.

    • Anthony Batulis

      Don’t go to games. Don’t watch on TV. Don’t buy anything from their sponsors. Don’t buy anything with an NFL,NBA or MLB logo on it. Money still talks.

  5. I hope the NHL doesn’t kowtow to BLM. I was happy when The Blackhawk
    S refused to change their name. Plus hockey is my favorite sport. If everyone stops watching these sports then the owners and sponsors will lose money. Let’s see if BLM will support them. Not!
