If you’ve ever watched an NBA game and paid more attention to what’s happening on the bench than the action on the hardwood, you likely asked yourself, I wonder what the bench players are doing.
In a new Bleacher Report piece, several players were asked what’s happening on the bench. Besides the usual downing cups of coffee, eating full meals and texting, some guys are… looking for cute women in the stands.
Heat center Kelly Olynyk revealed Gerald Green used to spend a lot of his time downing cups of coffee loaded with cream and sugar. Knicks center Kyle O’Quinn admitted some guys will complain about how much time games are taking. And Cavaliers forward Channing Frye said he enjoys the choreographed celebrations that take place on the court during timeouts.
Frye was also the lone player who spoke about how some guys will look through those in attendance at a game to see if they can find women. He said players will even pause what they’re doing to discuss certain women in the crowd.
One of Frye’s teammates made it clear, he’s not looking for new work in the stands, cause that could mean someone getting hands thrown in the stands. Tristan Thompson says he’s not looking at anyone, “No, I got a girl, so I ain’t looking at a girl,” Thompson said, referencing his pregnant girlfriend Khloé Kardashian. “I ain’t getting my ass knocked out. I’m taken, so I’m good. I ain’t got nothing to look at.”
