Denver Nuggets guard Troy Daniels has played for seven teams, including one season for the Los Angeles Lakers. Daniels said he was able to enjoy life as a Laker in an interview with Mark Berman of The Roanoke Times:
“It’s something that you always dream about as a little kid. For you to actually be there in the midst of those greats and being in that type of organization, it was an unbelievable feeling each and every day. The Lakers organization ran totally different than a lot of organizations as far as the way they catered to the players, the way the players have a say-so in everyday stuff that we do. The type of media attention that you get when you’re with that organization is unbelievable. All the way to the chefs — the food was great. We’re having lobster and steaks after games. Staying over in different cities [after games] when other teams would just fly out that night,” Daniels said.
