Inside Cleveland Cavaliers' bubble: Topgolf, cornhole, downtown boat ride, team dinners and plenty of hoops
Author: Chris Fedor
CLEVELAND, Ohio -- On Monday afternoon, days before the Cavaliers were set to leave their downtown bubble, they took a team trip to Topgolf in Independence.
Collin Sexton got a brief pointer on how to properly grip the club. Then it was go-time.

There’s nothing odd about the Cavaliers finally getting together in late September after a long summer off. They’ve been doing that for 50 years. What’s odd is that the guys are going their separate ways after 10 days of workouts this year.
The Wine & Gold’s downtown mini-bubble came to an end this week, with the Cavs joining 28 other teams not named the Lakers and Heat in a holding pattern until the league decides exactly how and when the 2020-21 will tip off.
Kevin Love and Larry Nance Jr. were on hand to steer the squad. Dylan Windler, who missed all of last year, made more strides towards his pending return. Darius Garland is trimmed down and Collin Sexton is bulked up. And after taking the reins after last year’s All-Star Break, J.B. Bickerstaff can come to camp with a nice blueprint laid down after the bubble. - CLICK HERE to read full story.
