With the coronavirus quarantine entering its second month, we've all had our routines thrown out of whack and have been trying to stay busy. That goes for NBA players, too.
On the latest "Enes Kanter Show" podcast, Kanter is joined by fellow Celtics big man Vincent Poirier who had a hilarious response to Chris Forsberg's question about what he's been doing to stay in shape.

"All I can say is they call me Vinnie Sex Pants for a reason," the 7-footer from France quipped, putting a new twist on the nickname he gave himself after announcing he was about to become a father.
Turning attention to their long-awaited return to the court as some NBA teams opened their practice facilities Friday in states that have eased restrictions, Kanter said doesn't begrudge teams that are getting a jump on workouts ahead of the Celtics, who are still waiting with Massachusetts' stay-at-home order in place until May 18.
In fact, even before getting back to work, the Philadelphia 76ers have already talked about preparing for a playoff matchup with the Celtics.
"You can look at it both ways. Obviously, of course, it's not fair one state starts early, one state does not start early," Kanter said. "But at the same time, I don't blame them. Obviously, every player wants to go out there and play basketball so I'm not going to be like, 'Oh, 'I don't want to Philly to practice or I don't want this team to practice.' But good for them, just to get into that gym and smell that atmosphere because we all miss it. I'm not going to be like, 'Oh, this is not fair.'
The Celtics teammates also run down their favorite celebrity guests on their team Zoom conference calls (Mark Wahlberg? LL Cool J? Ken Jeong?) and Kanter reveals one he's invited to join. It's all on "The Enes Kanter Show" podcast on the NBC Sports Boston Podcast network. It can also be viewed on YouTube:
