Pelicans’ Nicolo Melli brought espresso machine to bubble because “the coffee here kind of sucks”
Coffee snobs will go to insane lengths to make sure they get the cup they like. (Trust me, my wife is one, and she has coffee imported from a favorite roaster on another coast so her french press is filled with exactly the right brew every morning.)
Insane lengths like bringing an espresso machine to the NBA’s restart bubble in Orlando. Which is exactly what Pelicans’ Nicolo Melli did.

He’s not wrong.
Most guys brought their gaming system or golf clubs, but you’ve got to bring what matters to you. And if that’s a good espresso, then more power to Melli.
