The NBA’s three-week training camp is underway in Orlando, Florida! And players are already losing it.
Life in the Orlando Bubble for the participating 22-teams has consisted of three-hour time slots to practice, workout, take advantage of the weight room, and get extra shots up.
But outside of team meetings and those three-hour time slots in the gym at ESPN’s Wide World of Sports on the Disney World Resort Campus, the players are keeping themselves entertained.
And by doing so, they’re keeping us all entertained.
[Listen to the latest Talking’ Blazers Podcast with hosts Channing Frye and Dan Sheldon].
This season has been chalk full of jokes, horse noises, and off the wall comments from Trail Blazers center Hassan Whiteside.
It’s good to see he still has his sense of humor in the bubble.
And, we all better watch out because Whiteside is the captain now…
As for former Trail Blazers big man Meyers Leonard, who is now with the Miami Heat, he has been playing his video games per usual, but he has also shown off another skill.
Leonard posted a video of himself chugging a Coors Light beer in the bubble. Does this make him even more of a Legend now?
Well, I guess it makes Leonard the “king of the bubble.”
Apparently, the NBA competition right now is beer slamming since scrimmages don’t start for another two weeks.
Pelicans guard JJ Redick got in on the beer-chugging action. Redick posted a video of himself shotgunning a Bud Light while sitting in an ice bath after Sunday’s practice.
Leonard also challenged his NBA colleagues to beat his time. His first challenger is Utah Jazz guard Jordan Clarkson.

Our guess is that the beer competition will continue, as will the use of Instagram and Snapchat filters.
But, what will the NBA players do next in the Bubble?
You know we will keep you posted here at NBC Sports Northwest.
