LeBron James enjoyed one final Taco Tuesday last night as the Lakers prepare to fly to Orlando on Thursday to enter the Disney World bubble where other teams are getting acclimated to life inside the bubble and the food they’ll be served. Nuggets guard Troy Daniels posted what his Tuesday night appetizer looked like and I’m going to go out on a limb and say LeBron will not be eating the basic bubble meals.
Zero chance. No way Bron is picking watermelon slices out of a plastic container. Are you kidding me? I’d be interested to know the last time LeBron ate any fruit out of a plastic container. What about dinner out of a styrofoam container?
I have to believe there are chefs cooking for the league all-stars, chefs cooking for the starters and then chefs cooking for the scrubs at the end of the bench. Troy Daniels plays around 11 minutes per game. The NBA can’t be feeding him the same as LeBron. Zero chance.
The really good news for NBA guys is that this airline dinner setup is temporary, according to NBA Insider® Marc Stein. He says this is how it’ll be for 48 hours while players are quarantined. Once that period is over things will reportedly be different. However, Stein is locked in a back-and-forth with Donovan Mitchell over the situation. The food situation is definitely worth watching moving forward.
Per Walt Disney World Sources: All food will be prepared by Walt Disney World culinary teams, with some exceptions. Teams and players may provide private chefs to prepare food. Outside food orders are very limited.

Chris Chiozza, a Brooklyn point guard who averages around 11 minutes per game, posted this meal that appears to be chicken or fish.
