Players have handled the new reality in a variety of ways, most notablyvia excessive gaming. But Brooklyn Nets point guard Spencer Dinwiddie asked which players are watching their highlights on YouTube:
One of the players watching his own highlights: Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry.
This weekend marked Curry's 32nd birthday. This entire season has missed Chef Curry highlights, as the two-time MVP has missed all but five games due to injury and illness.
Let us all take a moment, along with Curry, to celebrate greatness:
Curry wasn't the only star to answer Dinwiddie's call to action.
Boston Celtics power forward Jayson Tatum, fresh off his first All-Star game, has been watching his clips as well.
Tatum is leading the Boston Celtics with 23.6 points per game. Here are some of those points:
Washington Wizards shooting guard Bradley Beal didn't make the All-Star team, but he has been collecting voluminous levels of buckets all season. He had to let Dinwiddie and everyone else know:
Beal scored more than 50 points in back-to-back games this season. It doesn't matter right now that his team lost the games. This is a Bradley Beal moment.
Other players have been inspired by Dinwiddie to watch their own zeniths, includingBuddy Hield, Josh Richardson and first-time All-Star Donovan Mitchell.
Of course, Dinwiddie had one of the highlights of the NBA season before things went on hiatus, leading the Nets to a road win againstthe Los Angeles Lakersand MVP candidate LeBron James.
Hopefully the 2019-20 NBA season can return so more highlights can be made, butthat might not come until June.
