For the most part, NBA players are accustomed to certain luxuries that many of us will never know. This includes lavish meals prepared by team staff and personal chefs. However, the cuisine provided at the Orlando facility where the remainder of the NBA season will take place doesn’t exactly stack up to what these guys are used to.
As players have begun to arrive in Florida to commence training, Troy Daniels of the Denver Nuggets took to social media to give us a look at what athletes are being served in the Orlando bubble. It didn’t take long for Twitter to chime in, as some likened the spread to airline food, prison meals, and middle school lunch.
After the post went viral, the NBA reassured everyone that the food will get better once people leave quarantine. “After clearing quarantine, players will also have access to various restaurants on campus and delivery options to choose from,” the league said in a statement. “Players will receive three meals a day and four meals on gamedays. There is never a shortage of food options — players can always request additional food by speaking with their team nutritionists.”
Still, players are not allowed to leave the Orlando facility until their team’s season ends, so options will remain limited.
