Giannis Antetokounmpo doesn't appear to be enjoying life away from the NBA right now.

The NBA has suspended all league activities for at least 30 days due to the nationwide health scare. The league announced the decision shortly following Rudy Gobert's positive test.

NBA players are now relegated to a life of video games and Netflix (and quality time with their families). That can get a little boring, though.

"If this is how my life is going to be after basketball I’m not retiring for a long time," Giannis, 25, joked on Twitter this week.

Giannis' longtime girlfriend, Mariah Riddlesprigger, responded to her boyfriend's viral tweet with a quip of her own. "You will literally drive me crazy so the longer the better," she wrote.

It would be best for everyone if we could get Giannis (and the rest of the NBA) back on the court as soon as possible.

Until then, stay safe, everyone.
