The Portland Trail Blazers sat just 3.5 games out of playoff spot in the Western Conference a few weeks ago, yet life had other plans for the team from "Rip City," as their hopes of securing a berth were halted after the NBA suspended the season indefinitely. Now, the stars of the game are sitting at home in self-quarantine, awaiting word on when they'll be able to take the hardwood with their team.
CJ McCollum has spent a lot of his time on Twitter, just to keep his 375,000 followers in the loop. On Sunday, he sent out a message of dismay after discovering that he'd run out of Flamin' Hot Cheetos in his house.
Of course, there's always that one snarky fan who decides to take a shot at a professional athlete. This individual decided to call out McCollum's diet as a reason for his defensive liabilities, and the shooting guard had a rather blunt response for them.
McCollum speaks nothing but truths.
During this time of social distancing, nothing is more valuable right now than a Netflix account, and he'll be damned if someone uses his password to access it and subsequently lock him out. Not on his watch.
Luckily for McCollum, Chicago Bulls play-by-play commentator Chuck Swirsky responded to his Cheetos inquiry to let him know that he's got a bag with his "name on it."
As for those of you who hide behind the logo of your favorite sports team, maybe don't "at" a player to badmouth them or criticize the way they live their life. They're going to get notified, so don't act shocked if they fire back a retaliatory shot.
