Anthony Davis Inexplicably Questioned By a Dog During Post-Game Press Conference
The NBA COVID bubble has been a wild success thus far by any rational standard.
Somehow, we've almost reached the conference finals and managed to keep the bubble from filling with a highly contagious disease.
Of course, it's still a pretty weird scene, featuring any numbers of quirks unique to the situation.

It's unclear if the marmoset ever questioned Davis in a public forum, but it seemed fairly good natured.
Okay, that's actually a marmot, although they are notoriously difficult interviews.
Davis may want to keep his distance.
