Reactions from NBA gamers to the meals they get in Orlando – Fadeaway World
The NBA announced their plans to resume action and given all the details they provided after the initial announcement, everyone was excited to see how they would look after players and staff once they made it to Orlando. Everything sounded fine until the first players landed on the bubble and showed off the food they were getting.
Players like Joel Embiid complained about the weight he would lose after his first meal at Walt Disney World. All of these players are used to eating in expensive restaurants so the chance wasn’t easy for them. A few of them did not complain about the food, but a large part of them were not satisfied with their meals.

Other players like Meyers Leonard or Enes Kanter reacted differently to the food they were given. Even Ja Morant stated that “he was not born with a silver spoon,” so the food was fine for him.
Yes Morant: “My room is fine. The food is good. I’m not a silver spoon type. “

Reportedly, that was the 48-hour quarantine meal, but most of the comments weren’t good at all.
Food in the NBA bubble will change after the quarantine is complete. Player meals no longer look like airline trays after the first 48 hours …

Most people didn’t have it because of the look, the amount, or the taste. Hopefully the league will improve that and give the players better meals. The fans have questioned them, reminding them that people are starving and they should be more grateful for the things they have.
