Do not believe everything you read on the internet. Even from former teammates.

On Saturday from the NBA bubble in Orlando, Phoenix Suns wing Kelly Oubre Jr. tweeted what he believed to be a legit workaround to the league’s less than desirable food situation.

Oubre said the food delivery service Postmates would indeed arrive at the hotel at Walt Disney World and it was fine as long as the security guys didn’t help.

That’s certainly not a good way to maintain the legitimacy of a bubble.

Predictably, Oubre later deleted the tweet and then had a quick followup later that night.

It appears that was too late for his former teammate and Sacramento Kings center Richaun Holmes, who now has to go into quarantine through to July 21 because he broke the rules by grabbing his own delivery order outside the campus.

Holmes tweeted to Oubre’s clarification after the news broke but quickly deleted it.

Unfortunate.

Holmes’ mom (who, trust me, is one of the best follows on Twitter) offered some advice for her son.
