In case you’ve been hiding in your own bubble, the NBA has actively been living (and playing) in an actual, literal, COVID-free one for that last two months in the NBA bubble at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida.
Understandably, not all players have the same bubble digs (The Raptors, for instance, no longer have any), and LA Laker star LeBron James is truly out-living everyone else in the league. To celebrate the opening of the NFL season on Sunday, James gave fans a sneak peek inside his room at the Disney World campus and, simply put, LBJ is living like a king.
James took to Instagram to share a video of his palatial suite with his 72+ million followers that included three screens all showing NFL football.
The video also shows a small kitchen area stocked with paper towels, bottles of water, and what appears to be nearly 20 bottles of red wine on the floor.

Another video posted on Monday from the popular Twitter account NBA Bubble Life gave fans an even closer look at James’ luxe room. And from the first look, it’s safe to say James is living rather comfortably in what must be one of the hotel’s most elite suites.
Complete with wood-panelled ceilings, custom wall decor and light fixtures, a full dining area and kitchen, multiple bedrooms, a porcelain soaker tub fit for a king (which we hope can actually fit James’ 6’8.5” frame), and more flat screens than one could possibly need in a hotel room, no luxurious touch was spared when it came to designing this suite.
