Cassidy Hubbarth’s NBA Playoff Chronicles – ‘Chapter 6: Goodbye to the Bubble’

ESPN's NBA host and reporter is documenting her journey and sharing her experiences for Front Row as part of multi-chapter visual and audio series

ESPN NBA host and reporter Cassidy Hubbarth has embarked on the most unexpected assignment of her decade-long ESPN career.

Hubbarth was part of the media contingent on the NBA Florida Campus at the Walt Disney World Resort, in Lake Buena Vista Fla., for six straight weeks covering what could prove to be a once in a lifetime event – the NBA Playoffs at a neutral location, sans fans, during a global pandemic.

The NBA game reporter and Hoop Streams host documented her journey and shared her experiences for Front Row as part of multi-chapter visual and audio series. As Hubbarth left central Florida to begin the journey home, she provided one bonus chapter: “Goodbye to the Bubble.”

Hubbarth now focuses on her Hoop Streams hosting role for the remainder of the postseason.

Shelby L. Lacy produced the video.
