Dr Disrespect trolls NBA teams during Game 7 virtual appearance

As the NBA’s Houston Rockets faced off against the Oklahoma City Thunder in a pivotal Game 7, Dr Disrespect made the most of his virtual attendance by trolling the two teams and their fanbases.

NBA games are being played in an isolated bubble in Orlando, but the league has allowed fans to register as “virtual fans” who can watch the games via livestream and have their reactions broadcast alongside the court’s massive screens.

Dr Disrespect has been known for playing collegiate basketball, but became notorious as a Golden State Warriors fan in 2019, so it should be no surprise that he took his chance as a virtual fan, with his own song playing in the background, to troll the two teams playing.

The Game 7 matchup between the Rockets and Thunder had its own drama, as the Rockets had just traded away veteran Chris Paul to the Thunder for Russell Westbrook the season prior. This was Paul’s chance to get revenge on his former team after helping carry a destitute roster into the playoffs. But Dr Disrespect, the Two-Time champion himself, did not hesitate to third party the teams and their fanbases by invoking his preferred team — a perfect troll given their rivalries.

Golden State have broken Houston and Oklahoma City hearts frequently over the past five seasons, during which the Bay Area team was one of the NBA’s most dominant dynasties of all time. Fittingly, as a fan of neither team playing, the Doc rocked his Warriors championship hat for a portion of the broadcast.

While the Warriors slipped into a rebuild thanks to injuries in 2020, they’ve won three titles over the past five seasons and paved the road to that gold with gut-wrenching wins against each team playing in this Game 7. In 2016, the Warriors beat the Thunder in a Western Conference Finals Game 7 and, in 2018, they beat the Rockets in Game 7 during the WCF as well — just one of four times they’ve sent Houston packing in four of the last five years.

In 2019, the Doc attended Golden State’s Finals matchup against the Toronto Raptors with court-side seats. It was at that point that he made his affinity clear by infamously talking trash to the Raptors during the game. Now, Bay Area fans should be encouraged by knowing that the Two-Time has remained loyal, despite a disappointing season.

British fitness guru and social media influencer Matt ‘MattDoesFitness’ Morsia has completely transformed his home gym — but the cost of the renovations was nothing to sneeze at.

Morsia is one of the fitness community’s biggest internet stars; boasting over 1.9 million subscribers on YouTube and 898,000 followers on Instagram, his honest approach to fitness and crazy physical challenges have earned him as substantial audience.

Of course, it stands to reason that someone so dedicated to working out would have their own home gym (especially in a time where going to the gym could put one at risk) — but for Morsia, it’s more than just another room in his home.

For this influencer, the gym is his office, which he explained in the beginning of his video on the topic. He clarified that much of the equipment in his gym had been provided by his sponsors, and since it “directly contributes” to his salary, he chose only the most top-tier brands — something he claimed the average person does not need to do for their own home gym experience.

That being said, Matt went on to reveal the exact cost of the space, and it’s enough to make your jaw drop to the floor (or at least a fair wince).

As for the building itself, he spent a grand total of £34,000 (or $43,979), which isn’t actually part of his house. Instead, he commissioned the space to be completely “built from scratch” in the back garden — further compounding on its comparison to a true office space.

Combined with his equipment — the most expensive part of which was his £2,790 ($3,608) dual cable pulley — the entire gym ended up costing him £47,999 ($62,073). That’s nothing to sneeze at!

Morsia was quick to inform viewers that much of his equipment is no longer available for purchase due to the current global climate, and that other parts of the space — such as the bumper plates for his squat rack — were built by hand.

All in all, Morsia’s home gym is an impressive project that cost an equally impressive amount of cash, but when it’s your livelihood on the line, no price is too high for a quality workout.
