Malik Monk Went To Check-In To The Hornets' Preseason Game, Only To Learn That He Forgot To Put On His Jersey
Preseason baby, can you feel the excitement?!? It's a new season, and though the games don't count for a damn thing yet, it's almost as of the players can't even think straight due to their anxiousness to run back out on the hardwood and go through the motions of largely meaningless basketball! I mean, what other reason could Malik Monk possibly have for forgetting to put on his uniform than the unadulterated elation that proceeds a professional athlete's participation in a glorified scrimmage?
What's that you say? Sheer apathy? A lack of motivation resulting in laughable preparation? A clear indifference to being ready to get some largely irrelevant run? Nope, that doesn't sound right. Not in my NBA are there players who can't possibly care enough to remember to properly dress themselves until the wins and losses have consequences. Malik Monk was just too amped to get some preseason action, just like everyone of his peers that have argued on behalf of shortening the regular season.
