Though the Sixers’ journey to Disney World for the NBA’s planned restart was not a typical road trip, some things haven’t changed.
Matisse Thybulle was still responsible for procuring Chick-fil-A for his veteran teammates. Tobias Harris still had a stint as “DJ Tobi.” And Joel Embiid still cracked jokes with his usual dry humor.
Thybulle posted a vlog on Saturday of the Sixers’ trip, documenting their flight to Orlando and early hours in quarantine. The players have since cleared the initial mandated quarantine and returned to practice Saturday for the first time since March 10.
The personalized pillow is a nice touch from the staff at the Grand Floridian Hotel. And, though Thybulle was missing a fork at first, it didn’t sound like he had any complaints about the food.
As he said, “The chicken is chicken.”
