NBA training camp can be a really boring place.
Often times, teams will relocate to a new locale for a few days/week to avoid distractions from home life and to create a bond between teammates. Along with that, the NBA preseason schedule usually leads to teams playing in very unique and different places than they normally would, creating a lot of hotel time.
So what are a bunch of bored athletes to do while stuck in airplanes or a hotel room? Play video games, of course. That’s apparently how JaVale McGee and Evan Fournier of the Denver Nuggets have spent a good portion of their camp as they’ve pretty much perfected the sound effects from the famed Nintendo video game, Mario Kart.
McGee, who’s an avid social media user decided to post the video to his account recently as you can see below:
I’m hoping the Nuggets decide to change their made free throw sound effect to a Mario Kart sound effect.
