Myles Turner compliments NBA on bubble setup in Orlando

NBA players have had a variety of complaints over the past week about the league’s bubble campus in Orlando, but Indiana Pacers center Myles Turner says it is not nearly as bad as his peers are making it out to be.

Turner admitted that some of the amenities aren’t quite what some NBA players are used to, but said it was more than adequate enough for its purpose and praised the NBA for the effort it took to put it together.

One of the early stories of the bubble has been player complaints, with one player actually saying he’s been told to tone it down. This seems to be the exception to the rule, however, as other players who are fine with the setup have started to vocally express that.

A lot of people worked very hard to put this together and make it work, and many others continue to do so. You can understand why one NBA analyst has no time for those who are going to publicly complain about the setting.

Josh Hart had wine fridge delivered to Orlando hotel room

Josh Hart is doing his best to live the good life while in the Orlando bubble.

The New Orleans Pelicans guard told reporters on Sunday that he had a wine fridge delivered to his hotel room, per Will Guillory of The Athletic. Hart added that the fridge can hold around 15 bottles.

The 25-year-old Hart is staying at the Yacht Club Resort in the Disney World complex with the rest of the Pelicans, who will resume play 3.5 games behind the Memphis Grizzlies for the No. 8 seed in the West. We have already seen other NBA players make creative upgrades to their respective rooms as well.

It seems the Pelicans specifically are making the most of their time in bubble. One of Hart’s teammates engaged in some similar exploits this weekend too.
