Troy Daniels’ NBA bubble meal photos show what awaits Kings in Orlando


When the Kings arrive at the Yacht Club hotel in the Disney World complex Wednesday, the food they are given might not be what they are used to consuming on a daily basis.

Several NBA teams, including the Denver Nuggets and Brooklyn Nets, arrived in Orlando on Tuesday, and a few players posted photos of the food they received.

Nuggets guard Troy Daniels posted two images on his Instagram Story on Tuesday night.

Here's the menu provided to Daniels:

Fresh Garden Greens, Arugula, 
Watermelon, Pickled Red Onions, Goat 
Cheese with Raspberry Vinaigrette
Tomato and Mozzarella Caprese Salad
Italian Grilled Chicken with Natural Jus
White fish with Tomato and Dill Topping
Pamesan Polenta with Sundried Tomatoes
Pasta with Impossible Bolognese Sauce
Roasted Summer Vegetables

Nets point guard Chris Chiozza posted a photo of the full meal.

Former Kings guard Isaiah Thomas saw the photos Daniels posted, and figured there's no way Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James would eat the spread.

While that menu is pretty extensive, most high-level athletes are pretty particular about what they put into their bodies, so some of the players might not like this menu.

For those worried that the players aren't getting meals that meet their dietary requirements, The New York Times' Marc Stein has good news:


The Kings will enter the NBA's Orlando bubble on Wednesday and will be quarantined for a few days while they are administered coronavirus tests.

Once the team's quarantine concludes, they will begin group workouts this weekend. Starting Wednesday, the Kings will conduct the first of three scrimmages against other teams in the bubble.

The Kings' first of eight seeding games will take place on Friday, July 31 against the San Antonio Spurs.
