Being in the NBA is a stressful job because even when players are not playing games, because they have to train and stay in shape. But the little time players have, if any, is used in many different ways. While some might spend that time with their family, others stay active on social media to interact with fans or just share their honest thoughts about a topic.
Orlando Magic center Robin Lopez certainly falls in the latter category. The 33-year-old has always been known for being quite active on his Twitter account. From time to time, he has given fans some hilarious moments and Lopez has done it again.
Lopez left a tweet on a video shared by Rob Perez that features the Utah Jazz mascot playing musical chairs with kids. In the video, the Jazz mascot lightly pushes a kid to book his spot on the chair when the music stops. That led to Lopez hilariously asking United States president Joe Biden for help. Lopez tweeted:
"@POTUS will you save us in our moment of greatest need Adam Silver has turned a blind eye to the unyielding pain and suffering @nytimes @CNN #ThinkOfTheChildren”
It was a hilarious tweet by Lopez and fans certainly loved his whimsical approach to the Jazz bear pushing a kid. Hopefully, Joe Biden will hear Lopez's cry for help as, according to him, the current NBA commissioner Adam Silver has turned a blind eye to the pain.
This season the Orlando Magic center has plenty of free time as he is not majorly involved in the team's rotation. Lopez, despite being out of his prime, is a good rotation player.
If given the right opportunity, he might be able to help the Magic. Even so, there is not much that he can do, to be honest. The Magic are currently 14th in the Eastern Conference with a record of 6-25. Despite the poor record, the Magic registered a victory against the first seed Brooklyn Nets.
Both teams were depleted due to the health and safety protocols ruling out 24 players combined. NBA analyst Richard Jefferson even tried to roast the Nets and the Magic due to this.
At the end of the day, a win is a win and this rare victory might help the players in uplifting their morale.
