Professional athletes get creative with funny home videos

With many people practicing social distancing by staying indoors, athletes and others have gotten creative with videos in their homes. We want to see yours.

MACON, Ga. — The COVID-19 pandemic shuttered a lot of people indoors as they practice social distancing to slow the spread of the virus.

As the days inside cause people to grow a little stir crazy, some have gotten creative with ways to stay entertained online.

Professional athletes are no different.

The NBA season was postponed for a minimum of 30 days and many NBA stars are stuck at home away from the court.

That hasn't stopped them from practicing their craft.

Atlanta Hawks superstar Trae Young posted a video on his Twitter account of a mock three-point contest in his home, where he shot balled-up pairs of socks into a basket.

Young issued the #InHouseChallenge asking others to post their own videos of them staying active and being creative with sports in their homes.

Since then, other stars have posted videos of themselves doing quirky, yet athletic challenges.

Dallas Mavs star Luka Doncic posted a video that appeared on the team's twitter page of him juggling a roll of toilet paper like a soccer ball.

Stephen Curry is also getting in on the fun. An avid golfer, Curry posted a trick shot video of him hitting a ball into a cup off his front door via a golf club.

He then challenged pro tennis player Mardy Fish. Fish upped the ante by posting his own trick shot video in what appears to be his backyard. He hits a golf ball off a backboard onto a miniature green and into the cup.

At 13WMAZ, we want to offer up our own challenge.

Send your creative sports videos to us by tagging Avery Braxton (@brax_avery) or Marvin James (@sportsguymarv) on Twitter, sending it via Facebook or to the WMAZ newsroom by email at news@wmaz.com.
