Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey was impressed by P.J. Tucker’s customized set-up in the bubble.
NBA commissioner Adam Silver miraculously found a way to salvage the NBA season, as the NBA’s training camp has already gone underway in Orlando, which is the site of the league’s bubble. The Houston Rockets have had nearly a week worth of workouts, and they’ve reportedly looked impressive in their practices.
There were initial concerns about the quality of food and the limited food options inside the bubble, but that was sure to improve with the NBA announcing that Rockets owner Tilman Fertitta’s suite of restaurants was going to be providing food for the players in Orlando. But aside from the food, the players have mostly made themselves at home in Orlando, as we’ve seen videos of the Rockets going fishing, and we’ve also seen several players around the league participate in the beer challenge.
The Houston Rockets turned a hotel room into a training hub, which further illustrates the team’s focus and determination to win the title this season. Rockets ace P.J. Tucker has also joined the party, as he added an 85-inch TV to make himself comfortable for an extended stay in the Grand Floridian, which is where the Rockets are being housed.
Rockets’ Daryl Morey is impressed by Tucker’s customized TV
Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey decided to join the team in Orlando, as he wanted to share the players’ experience of being away from their families for an extended period of time, stating that he felt it would be unfair for the players to be asked to do that on their own, which speaks to Morey’s character and commitment beyond the playing surface.
Morey was on SportsTalk 790’s The A-Team to share his thoughts on Tucker’s customized TV, among several other things.
“I thought that was very creative. I like the creativity out here. Pat Beverley seems to have a nice set-up, and P.J. seems to have a nice set-up.”
Morey stated that he was impressed with Tucker’s customized TV and offered his thoughts on how other players around the league have made themselves at home. Tucker stated that he’s preparing himself to be in Orlando for 90 days, which is the length of time the eventual NBA champion will be in Orlando, as the NBA Finals are expected to conclude in early October.
If the Rockets win the title, Tucker could possibly be able to buy several more of those customized TV’s, as it could land him a new contract. We’ll have to see how it all plays out, but it’s good that Tucker is preparing to be in Orlando until the Rockets are crowned the champions.
