The 2018 All-Star break is in full effect right now for NBA players, coaches, and other staff members of all 30 teams across the league. It is a time for them to get away from the game a bit and spend time with friends, family, go on a vacation, simply relax at home, or whatever else sounds nice.
However, to many NBA fans across the world, this is not a very fun time since we, unfortunately, cannot watch any games until Thursday night.
Need some advice on how to pass the time by over the next couple days? Look no further than this thread posted on Monday night to Reddit. There are tons of things that the diehard NBA fan can do. Some recommendations to kill time are hilarious, some are productive, and some are downright bizarre.
For the real diehard fans, it was suggested to just watch the empty NBA League Pass screen and listen to the music until one’s favorite team returned to action.
Want to do something that actually doesn’t require a lot of time out of someone’s busy schedule? One Reddit user simply suggested that we watch highlights from Philadelphia 76ers point guard Markelle Fultz’s rookie campaign this season.
Ouch, that’s harsh but still pretty hilarious. In just four games this season and many setbacks from a shoulder ailment that has sidelined him since late October, the 19-year old Fultz has logged only 75 total minutes and has scored just 24 points on 33.0 percent shooting from the field.
One should watch more NHL action and the 2018 Winter Olympics from PyeongChang in South Korea. Binge-watching a show on Netflix, playing video games, and watching porn are also very popular on this Reddit thread, so there’s something to think about.
Or one could just go outside and, you know, play a game of pickup basketball with a group of friends. But it’s always a good thing to keep an open mind!
