Unique items NBA players brought to Orlando


Remember that old icebreaker question: What are three things you’d pack if you were going to a deserted island? We’ve all thought about it, but none of us really think we’ll ever have to make that decision.

Well, NBA players aren’t on a deserted island — not even close — but they did have to make some tough choices when it came to packing for the NBA bubble in Orlando, Florida. Take a peek through some of their bags and learn about a few of the more unique items they chose to pack.

What one pair of shoes did you have to bring with you?
I’m definitely bringing the Jordan 1 x Union Black Toe.

Was there a must-have snack, candy, etc. you had to bring?
Oh, I’ve got my Level protein bars for sure. They are the best protein bars on the market easy. And I have some of their unreleased flavor.


Any gadgets, toys, etc.? What game system are you bringing?
I have to have my whole streaming setup. I packed my Origin PC, one monitor, my mic, camera, multiple Scuf controllers and an Astro headset.

Was there a must-have snack, candy, etc. you had to bring?
I didn’t bring food, but what I did bring was a whole bunch of seasoning, a lot of hot sauce, a few peanut sauces, some BBQ sauces. I wasn’t exactly sure what we were getting into food-wise, so I probably have like eight different seasonings and sauces here.

I see this personalized gaming kit, what is the story behind that?
The case itself is pretty popular. It’s called Gaems. The actual decal itself, it’s a company called Game Decal and I sent it in and I worked with them to get a customized little package here. They did a great job on it. I’ve had for two years now, it’s very durable. The decal is of me and I remember the game I was playing, we were playing the
Atlanta Hawks and I remember that dunk.

I brought the Star Wars Legos, it’s a hobby of mine, it’s something I’ve done since I was a kid but this is how I spend my spare time. I like putting things together. I like challenging myself. The puzzles are not for everyone and the Legos, it looks like it’s fun and easy, but it’s the kind of thing that you have to have a lot of patience for. It’s a good way for me to kill some time and make the time pass even more.


I see on top of your suitcase you have more games?
There are two puzzles and then I brought a mat for the puzzles. Whenever you’re done with it or you need to go somewhere, you can actually roll it up so none of the pieces fall out.

I see a recovery pump. What is that?
That’s huge for me. I think it’s one thing that is very underrated. As athletes we know about it, but I am not sure people know. We have a two- to three-week training camp coming up and we don’t have access to our facilities like we had in Indiana, so after practices this is a mini way to flush out the lactic acid and a way to chill for a little bit. It’s going to be something that is utilized heavily, especially after games and after practice. I can do it in my room as opposed to having to go somewhere.

What are the first three things you put in your suitcase?
Draws (underwear), sweats, socks. Pack these three things first every single trip. Just makes the rest easier. As long as I don’t forget these, I can replace anything else.

Did you bring a good-luck charm?
Wooden cross necklace — Orthodox.

What game system did you bring?
PlayStation, for sure. I play UFC, FIFA and Mafia usually. Actually, just got to Orlando and trying to set it up now. Of course, it’s not working, but I have nothing but time to figure it out.

What was something you debated whether to pack last minute?
Two things: First, my wife packed this UV LED light for me for sanitizing. Second, all my gadgets for recovery.

What one pair of shoes could you not leave behind?
I have to keep it generic because I’m a Size 22. My court shoes and slides are essential. I’ll be spending a lot of time in my hotel room, so having the slides is key.

Did you bring a good-luck charm?
I brought the Quran and a good-luck charm my mom gave me. It means a lot.

Is there any décor, framed photo, or other item that you brought to make your Orlando hotel room feel more like home?
As long as I have my PS4, I feel like I’m home.
