As NBA teams arrived Tuesday at the campus-like complex near Orlando, Florida for the league’s restart, some less than appealing photos of food delivered to their rooms have appeared on social media.
Nuggets guard Troy Daniels posted on Instagram a paltry tray of greens, fruit, dinner roll, potato chips and trail mix.
Some Twitter users skewered the meal selection, referencing those sad meals of cheese and bread slices from the failed Fyre Festival in 2017.
Food services should improve as initial quarantines end, but the early photos illustrate a salient point — this is not what NBA players are accustomed to on the road while staying at five-star hotels such as the Four Seasons and The Ritz-Carlton.
There will be glitches and issue to resolve as the NBA and its teams figure out life at Disney.
NBA Commissioner Adam Silver acknowledged, “This is far from an ideal way to finish our season, and it will require tremendous sacrifices from all those involved.”
