Adult site’s risque sports play
NBA players from 22 teams are getting set to enter into the league's bubble in Orlando as the season looks to get back underway.
The unimaginable scenes will see the playing group abide by a strict set of guidelines that will leave them with plenty of time on their hands and little to do outside of playing.

Questions surrounding the bubble came in thick and fast since the plan was announced with one major issue centred around action off the court.
ESPN personality Stephen A. Smith said players would struggle to last three weeks, let alone three months, without being able to have sex.
"Do we really think the 'recreational activities' that these guys are accustomed to are going to be compromised for three months?" Smith asked. "I mean, somebody's gotta say it.
"You really, really think somebody's gonna be without their wives or their woman? The guys that are married without their wives, the guys that ain't married without their woman.
"You really, really think they're honouring a bubble for three months?"
Under the NBA's safety protocol, players aren't allowed to bring a plus-one until after the first round of games in order to keep risks of a coronavirus outbreak to a minimum.
Family members who are permitted after the first round will have to quarantine for three days in another part of Orlando before they can enter the NBA's Walt Disney World bubble, per the New York Times.
And it's here where adult site Cams.com has decided to try and swoop in with an exclusive offer for the players.
The adult entertainment site has decided to offer every player entering the bubble free access to its services.
"Players (and coaches) who sign up via email@example.com and verify their identity will be provided with a VIP membership and free tokens to the site which would allow them access to Cams.com's roster of beautiful models 24/7," read a statement from the company.
"If they are ever lonely or need some extra motivation before a big game, all they need to do is use their VIP membership credential to log on to the site and they will have an array of beautiful models at their disposal. They can chat with them in private cam rooms via voice and video text. The models can provide companionship, fun conversation, sexy stripteases, and more."
This isn't the first time an adult entertainment site has made a play on the NBA with porn company BangBros attempting to land the naming rights to the Miami Heat stadium last year.
After American Airlines announced it wouldn't be renewing its naming rights deal, the site swooped in with an official bid.
We've officially Submitted our $10,000,000 bid for the naming rights to the Miami Heat Arena. We wish to thank American Airlines for their past support of the @MiamiHEAT We intend to change the name to the BangBros Center aka 'The BBC' #BangBrosCares pic.twitter.com/YbhNattIm7— BANGBROSOFFICIAL (@BangBrosDotCom1) September 12, 2019
The bid didn't land with sporting organisations building up a family image unlikely to ever team up with adult entertainment companies.
It's not just NBA teams the adult sites are chasing either with CamSoda making a monstrous offer to team up with powerhouse college basketball team UCLA.
The deal, worth a reported $205 million USD over 10 years would see the company's logo appear on all uniforms.
UCLA is currently locked in a bitter war with Under Armour after the sporting brand announced it was suspending its 15-year deal with college.
Sports organisations have often tread ethical boundaries when it comes to affiliations with gambling, alcohol or cigarette companies as they attempt to keep their family image in check. But it appears those boundaries aren't going to stop the adult entertainment sites from continually making big dollar offers.
