Maybe this prods Disney to upgrade the food choices/food quality across the board. But then again...maybe not.

Well I'm fairly certain that when these guys get to the NBA and sign multi $$$$$ contracts along with all the endorsements that come their way as well, they have forgotten the type of meals we eat and have gotten use to meals that rate far above Disney fare. Even having meals shipped in from the off property restaurants listed dont match the high priced meals they are used to being served.
Now lets wait and see the get gripes and bad reports on how they are having to sleep in substandard housing.
Theyre continuing to pull down the major bucks while the rest of us struggle to make ends meet or just stay ahead of going bust.

60% of NBA players go broke within 5 years of no longer playing.

Thank the stars you're not being quarantined with the NBA Crew...
Clickbait title. Article undercuts the premise of the title.

Also, there's an NBA thread which is hashing all this days ago...

True, but while they are playing, what @JIMINYCR said is correct. The entitlement being displayed by many of these NBA players on social media is astounding.
Entitlement yes that's correct. I knew of Miami Heat players staying at first class hotels, then the team paying for all their meals and giving each player $100 plus per diem pay. ( a number of them like to play very intense card games with each other and winner takes all the winnings ). For some players it looks like WDW doesn't measure up to their standards.

Yes you are right... due to their inability to properly save, manage and invest their money. Many also have their money siphoned off by leeching friends and family who see them as cash cows. Those fortunate ones who get good financial advice do manage to invest for their future properly because they know injuries, dips in performance or trades can shorten or halt careers.
But this has nothing to do with present day complaints about the Disney food or my response to the post. Multi millionaires playing ball at Disney, no matter who they are, are in a better circumstance than us peons who sit in front of our TV's and watch them play. To complain about a meal they have to eat is petty.

NBA rookies go to what's called a weekend long training session and it is not working on their jump shot. They all stay at an hotel where they attend classes taught by current, ex , NBA players, GMs, and financial advisors. They learn about financial mgt, leeches trying to go after their money ( ie golddiggers, investments too good to be true, buying homes and cars for their family and friends, etc ) what is social media and how social media can make them or break them, etc. The stories they heard from ex NBA players who are successful and some who are not are what they hear. A number of the rookies are age 18-20 and some have just 1-2 years of college or some not at all. To be flashed with millions of dollars right away when some didn't even had money in their bank account to pay rent is a dreamworld for some of them.
