Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across the NBA. Each week, we send out questions to the most plugged in Celtics fans, and fans across the country. Sign up here to join Reacts.

The NBA bubble in Orlando is unlike anything before in sports. While teams have been able to return to play like before, there are plenty of noticeable changes. Fortunately, they all are going over impressively well.

According to SB Nation’s latest Reacts survey, fans are overwhelmingly in favor of many of the new features. Nearly three-fourths of fans said they love the new camera angle provided.

Probably the most unique new feature to the bubble is the addition of fans in the stands - kind of. Each game has featured a wall of virtual fans enjoying the matchup. More than 50 percent of fans said that they would want to be one of the virtual fans.

Fitting the relaxed nature of the NBA invading Walt Disney World, coaches have been allowed to ditch their formal suits on gamedays and replace them with the much more comfortable looking polo.

The vast majority of fans think this is a trend that should stay beyond the 2020 season.

The one new addition that wasn’t widely enjoyed was the fake crowd noise and game audio. Only 38 percent of fans said they like it to 20 percent that do not.
