Due to the Omicron variant of the coronavirus, it seems like the world is in for another major lockdown. Evidently, this has also impacted the NBA in a bad way. Many players are currently in the health and safety protocols which has affected the scheduled games of many teams.

The two teams that have suffered the most are unarguably the Brooklyn Nets and the Orlando Magic. Prior to the matchup between the two sides, a combined 24 players from both rosters were unavailable to participate. This led to fans seeing quite a surprising starting fives in the fixture.

Despite many top-notch players not being part of the game, NBA fans were present in abundance to support their respective teams. This led to former NBA player Richard Jefferson making a hilarious comment. During the game, Jefferson said:

"This is a little-known fact. This is the most fans that have ever watched a G-League game."

NBA fans were divided on the joke from Jefferson and reacted to it in an Instagram post by "NBA Buzz." Here are some of the best comments that were on the aforementioned Instagram post.
