Which previously unheralded players took the opportunity to raise their stock in the two weeks of seeding games inside the NBA bubble?
For some, the seeding games in the Orlando season restart served as a warm-up for the playoffs. The performances of veteran superstars whose teams had playoff berths already locked up don't deserve the scrutiny they are sure to receive.
For others, however, those eight games served as an opportunity to make a statement and in some cases introduce (or re-introduce) themselves to the rest of the world.
These eight players are ones who might normally get overlooked. But after their respective efforts in Orlando, they've become impossible to ignore.
Nuggets fans have been waiting to see the แบล็คแจ็ค Porter Jr who emerged as a force during the seeding games. He took full advantage of the absence of starters Gary Harris and Will Barton to shove his way into the starting line-up and led the Nuggets in scoring and rebounds while shooting well, too (55.1 per cent overall, 42.2 per cent on three-pointers and 93.1 per cent on free throws.
