Chris Paul Hasn’t Used NBA’s Snitch Hotline Yet
Chris Paul has not used the NBA’s snitch hotline yet, but July is not even halfway done at this point. There is still time.
Six days into players arriving in Orlando, Florida, to take part in the NBA’s bubble, not a single participant has called into the hotline thus far.
Prior to the NBA bubble being set up and players from 22 teams traveling to Orlando, Florida, to join it, the league set up a special hotline.
As noted by Shams Charania and Sam Amick of The Athletic, this phone number was established so that players could report any infractions of quarantine processes that they witness.
When news of the hotline broke, Paul and D’Angelo Russell were immediately cited as the likeliest candidates to make use of it.
Russell, of course, was involved in an infamous situation with Nick ‘Swaggy P’ Young back when both were members of the Los Angeles Lakers.
Russell found himself the object of scorn when he leaked compromising imagery of Young and a woman who wasn’t his then-significant other, Iggy Azalea.
As a result of the incident, Russell was accused of snitching on Young and has worn a scarlet letter for it ever since.
Fortunately for him, the Minnesota Timberwolves were not invited to Orlando to participate in the bubble – so he has not had to worry about the situation.
Paul, meanwhile, has never snitched on a fellow NBA player over his personal life – to the best of anyone’s knowledge. But he is an extremely petty guy who is constantly reporting minor infractions by opposing players on the court. Hence him also developing a reputation for being a snitch.
While nobody has made use of the NBA’s special hotline yet, things are still fairly interesting in the Orlando bubble.

On Monday, Sacramento Kings big man Richaun Holmes revealed that he was forced to quarantine after he “briefly and accidentally crossed the NBA campus line to pick up a food delivery.”
In doing so, Holmes became the second player to violate the NBA’s bubble rules.
The first was Houston Rockets forward Bruno Baboclo, who “inadvertently” broke unspecified rules and was forced to quarantine for eight days.
Barring any unforeseen catastrophes or interruptions, official NBA play is set to resume on July 30 with the Utah Jazz taking on the New Orleans Pelicans and the Los Angeles Lakers squaring off against the Los Angeles Clippers.
