Players in the NBA bubble have been curing their boredom by any means necessary: Miami Heat and Champaign, Illinois' very own, Meyers Leonard shared a video of him shotgunning a beer. Jayson Tatum has been playing golf with Boston teammate Kemba Walker and Dallas star, Luka Doncic shared his football skills on Twitter. Basketball fans have been very entertained even though basketball was put on hold.
While many guys in the NBA continue to share short funny clips on Instagram or Twitter, two players are brushing up on their film making skills and is sharing their insightful experiences on YouTube.
