If you’re one of the best young players in the NBA, what do you do when you’re stuck in your house? If you’re Trae Young, you find a way to play ball, any way you can.
Like everyone else, Young is housebound due to the coronavirus pandemic. The NBA season is suspended and all around the country, people are being asked to stay in their house as much as possible.
Earlier tonight, Young posted a video of him playing a classic game: shooting his socks into a laundry basket. He took things a step further though.
Young decided to have a full mock three-point contest with his laundry, setting up five balls of socks in five spots like the racks during the three-point competition. The second-year point guard even wore his All-Star Game jersey for the occasion.
“What I’m doing to keep my shot right while I’m at the Crib #InHouseChallenge,” Young wrote on Twitter.

Not surprisingly, Young was very accurate with his shooting. Would you expect anything less?
It has to be killing him that he can’t be on the court playing. Hopefully we get some more videos of pros having some fun with the game of hoops under these trying circumstances.
