Grizzles Star Reveals Roaches, Bad Conditions In NBA Orlando Bubble
Memphis Grizzlies star Tyus Jones revealed the conditions NBA players are currently living in during their stay in the NBA’s Orlando, Florida, bubble.
It wasn’t pretty.
After COVID forced the NBA to suspend its season back in March, many wondered whether resuming play at any point in 2020 was feasible. The league tried its best to develop a plan of action, and that plan featured quarantine for all participants in bubble.
The bubble was set up at Disney World.
Given the amount of money at stake, many fans figured that the conditions for the players would be very high end and luxurious.
Apparently that assumption was misguided.
In a recent social media post, Jones shared a photo from his room which showed a dead cockroach.

A dead cockroach in itself is obviously not indicative of poor living conditions, but when taken with the photos of the food that players have had to eat thus far, it does paint a less than rosy picture.
The league has maintained that once the quarantine period is over, chefs will come in and the entire experience will become far more enjoyable for players.
Time will tell if that actually ends up being the case.
