The NBA is cracking down on player protocols as they continue on their season out of the bubble. Some players are not necessarily happy with all the new rules, and one player is voicing his opinion. Oklahoma City Thunder guard George Hill is calling out the new protocols for not making any sense.

We wanna play the game…but I don’t understand some of the rules. We can sweat 48 minutes with a guy next to us for 48 minutes, but we can’t talk to them afterwards. It makes no sense…I’m a grown man,” Hill explained, according to ESPN.
I’m gonna do what I want to do. If I want to go see my family, I’m going to go see my family. They can’t tell me I have to stay in a room 24/7. If it’s that serious, then maybe we shouldn’t be playing. But it’s life; no one’s going to be able to just cancel their whole life for this game.”
George Hill expressed frustration with the NBA's stricter health and safety protocols.

Shit. Since you're a "grown" man, be a good fucking model for the people and show them what's right and how to stop the spread of the disease. First step is following the protocols and rules! Some fucking people just don't care about others well-being. Smh https://t.co/T9OTRZOJ6m

Your employer is putting in these protocols to better protect you, your teammates and coaches so that you can continue to play basketball and get paid. We're all going through this, George. It sucks https://t.co/CK4CSxt9iM

For the amount of money NBA players are getting paid, it’s not too much to ask to follow the rules so the season can continue on. Some of these guys are just too selfish to see the big picture. If someone told me I could play in the NBA, but I wouldn’t be allowed to leave my house other than to play in games, I’d sign up in a heartbeat.
