The mediocre dinners of the NBA stars have been served on their first night in Disney World’s ‘Bubble’
REVEAL: The mediocre dinners of the NBA stars have been served on their first night in Disney World’s ‘Bubble’ before the season restarts later this month … with fans comparing them to the infamous Fyre Festival food
- NBA players begin arriving in Orlando prior to the restart of the season
- Denver Nuggets arrived on Tuesday and Troy Daniels was not happy with the food
- Fans took to social media to compare the portions to the ill-fated Fyre Festival
We’re only a few weeks away from restarting the NBA, and one of the league’s players has provided a seemingly disapproving insight into how the ‘bubble’ started in regards to food.
The regular season continues on July 30 with 22 of the 30 teams heading to Orlando, where the campaign will end on site at Disney World.
Teams begin arriving in Orlando where they must isolate until they test negative for coronavirus twice. Those traveling must land in Orlando between Tuesday and Saturday.
NBA player Troy Daniels gave fans insights into the food he served in the ‘NBA bubble’
He also showed the menu with a tomato and mozzarella caprese salad
Brooklyn Nets guard Chris Chiozza took a more lighthearted approach to the menu on offer
Daniels (previous photo shown) arrived in Orlando on Tuesday with the Denver Nuggets squad
The 28-year-old had started the season with the LA Lakers before being waived by them
TUESDAY NBA DINNER OPTIONS
Fresh garden vegetables, arugula, watermelon, pickled red onion, goat cheese with raspberry vinaigrette
Tomato and mozzarella caprese salad
Italian grilled chicken with natural gravy
White fish with tomato and dill topping
Parmesan polenta with sun dried tomatoes
Pasta with impossible Bolognese sauce
Roasted summer vegetables
And Tuesday, the Denver Nuggets were one of those teams that arrived on campus.
Players and staff get a variety of food for breakfast, lunch and dinner from the NBA, but it seems that the choices on offer don’t appeal to Nuggets guard Troy Daniels.
The 28-year-old took to Instagram to show his displeasure at his serving by taking a photo of the food accompanied by a face palm emoji.
Daniels got a plethora of options for his dinner, including a caprese salad with tomato and mozzarella, watermelon, Italian grilled chicken with natural gravy, and fresh garden vegetables.
Brooklyn Nets guard Chris Chiozza took the situation more lightly when he shared the menu through his Instagram story, which included white fish with tomato and dill topping and pasta with impossible Bolognese sauce. He captioned the footage with ‘Dinner time. And the bubble starts’ next to a crying laugh emoji.
NBA superstar LeBron James has yet to enter the bubble with the LA Lakers, team Daniels was disbanded in March, but his former Cleveland Cavaliers teammate Isaiah Thomas believes he won’t approve of the food choices.
“Really, Bron doesn’t eat this LOL,” he tweeted.
Point guard Isaiah Thomas laughed at the idea that ex-teammate LeBron James ate this
Basketball fans took to social media to also express their displeasure with the food offerings – with many comparing it to the ill-fated Fyre Festival.
“Imagine endangering your health and giving Disney your Michelin Michelin Fyre Festival catering,” he wrote @ haan_singh91while another wrote: “The NBA pandemic season is actually the Fyre Festival.”
Even NFL player Tre Boston of the Carolina Panthers said, ‘Them Boys eat like they do at The Fyre Festival !! Lmao, “next to crying emojis.
