Stephen A Smith last week on re-starting the NBA in a bubble where players can't have their partners with them
“Do we really think the ‘recreational activities’ that these guys are accustomed to are going to be compromised for three months? I mean, somebody’s gotta say it.
“You really, really think somebody’s gonna be without their wives or their woman? The guys that are married without their wives, the guys that ain’t married without their woman. You really, really think they’re honoring a bubble for three months?”
Oh you guys do sex? That is important to you? More important than winning? Can't be my sport!
Sex is cool, but have you ever won the Stanley Cup?
I'll be honest with you guys. I set out to poke fun at the hockey meme/culture about toughness and call NBA players pussies and then get out. I can't do it. The more I think about it the more I am with Tyler Kennedy's hard-ass hockey quote of the year. You know who gets to have sex? Pretty much everyone. Even a pudgy blogger who eats burrata salad gets to have sex on occasion. You know what I will never do? Win the Stanley Cup. You know what I will almost certainly do again in my life? Not have sex for 5 weeks. Most of my life has been spent not having sex and there wasn't a big trophy at the end of it either. Usually at the end there's just awkward silence and shame. I think I would be just fine defiling a hotel room with access to mini lotion bottles that get replenished daily and good wifi. Put my name into this commercial
