Magic’s Terrence Ross gives sneak peek at NBA game room/lounge
Orlando Magic swingman Terrence Ross offered the public a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the game room and lounge area at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort—and there’s no shortage of games for these highly competitive people to play.
The digs for the Magic and other teams include multiple PlayStation 4 consoles, a plethora of arcade games, a few NBA-branded ping-pong tables, a pool table, and a seating area. The room has sleek leather furniture, a black shag carpet, and a lineup of flat-screen TVs across the wall. Oh, and palm trees.

Video games seem to be the activity of choice for many of the players, especially the younger ones. Some players, including New Orleans Pelicans guard Josh Hart, Phoenix Suns center DeAndre Ayton, and Meyers Leonard of the Miami Heat have shared some looks into their personal gaming intentions.
Ross’ video — from a player on the Magic, in the host city of the restart — seems to be one of the few positive posts about the living situations inside the “bubbles” for the NBA and WNBA players. Earlier this week, multiple videos surfaced of horrid-looking conditions and meals at the WNBA’s facility at the IMG Academy in nearby Bradenton, FL, causing a slew of folks in the WNBA community to voice their displeasure with the set-up. Los Angeles Sparks’ Nneka Ogwumike even called out Oklahoma City Guard Chris Paul, president of the NBA Players Association. Multiple NBA players have also shared images of the less-than-appetizing meals.
On a less-relatable note — contrasted to what Ross of the Magic shared — Los Angeles Lakers point guard Rajon Rondo took to Instagram to complain about his room at the Gran Destino Tower, comparing it to a “Motel 6.”
