NBA Stars Looking Like Babies In The Disney Bubble
The NBA is attempting to play their season to a conclusion in a "Bubble" at Disney World in Orlando Florida. Obviously the players are making a sacrifice by subjecting themselves to isolation for approximately 100 days but the amount of crying coming from some of the NBA athletes, Los Angeles Lakers' JR Smith especially is a little ridiculous.
As a part of securing the Bubble players are isolated in their rooms in the beginning and the accommodations aren't exactly what Smith thinks he deserves. In videos that JR Smith has been posting on Instagram he's been highly critical of everything from the bracelet that gives him access to his room among other things, to the food and even blankets. TMZ sports has done a great job of chronicling Smith's disappointment.
At one point, Smith showed off a high-tech NBA-issued bracelet -- which reportedly will "help with early detection of coronavirus; track temperature, respiratory and heart rate."
Smith described it this way ... "Got my little band and sh*t so they can keep tabs on me. Tracking device. Stay woke." He also showed a bunch of snack food in the rooms -- from candy bars to cookies -- and complained about that too. "We're professional athletes and all that," Smith said ... pointing out how some players make "$30, $40, $50 million a year." "But, then you be over there crying talking about somebody can't stay healthy and their body is breaking down and all this other sh*t?"
"You wanna motherf**king Ferrari to run like a Ferrari cause you paid for it as a Ferrari ... but you keep gassing it up with Chrysler sh*t."
This is so tone deaf to say the least. Once the players are done with the initial quarantine they're getting after-hours access to attractions, like Expedition Everest, the Aerosmith Rock 'N' Roller Coaster and Test Track Epcot. There will also be three golf courses, fishing trips at Grand Marina, bowling, pool tables, ping pong, video games, swimming pools, tennis courts, and bikes. Each team hotel will also have barbers, stylists, manicurists and pedicurists.
JR Smith should just be happy he's even in the league. If it wasn't for the pandemic he'd be on his couch. He says the NBA has told him to stop posting about the accomidations.
