For on- and off-court reasons, many members of the Houston Rockets are in The Bahamas this week for unofficial team activities. The idea is that it could help the young team start to develop chemistry for the 2021-22 season, even prior to the launch of training camp in late September.

Since these basketball workouts, practices, and bonding activities are not official NBA events, there are no press conferences or media availability sessions with players. There are also no public cameras.

Each player, though — headlined by Christian Wood, five-time All-Star John Wall, and prized rookie Jalen Green — does have his own phone. Those phones often lead to social media updates, such as Wednesday’s flurry of pictures and videos showing players bonding on a yacht (possibly this one, which is owned by Rockets owner Tilman Fertitta).

In a recent interview, here’s how second-year Rockets forward Jae’Sean Tate characterized the Bahamas trip and its importance to the team:

We’ve got a lot of really young guys, and a couple new faces. This is a time for us to come together and bond.

It’s very important for teams to have that bond off the court. I think the best teams, the closest teams, are the ones that are most successful. It’s just getting acclimated with one another, and seeing where each other’s strengths are, and how we can improve.

So, what might that entail? As of Thursday, here’s a roundup of social media posts by Houston players showing their Bahamas activities.
