The indoors won’t stop athletes from working on their craft.

We’ve all been encouraged to pursue social distancing and staying inside to help flatten the curve amid the COVID-19 pandemic. There are only so many shows to watch, Netflix streaming parties, video games and other indoor activities that people can handle. But, in times like this, it’s time to get creative.

Seattle Storm All-Star point guard Sue Bird partnered with Home Court AI, an app for your iPhone or iPad.

HomeCourt uses just your iPhone or iPad to capture and analyze how you play—from your shots, to your dribbling, to your movements. Integrating NBA-backed instruction with engaging, guided workouts powered by AI, you’ll learn new skills in a way that feels less like training and more like a video game. HomeCourt captures all your activity and provides a complete picture of how you’re improving over time. You can share your skills within your community or even with the NBA through NBA Global Scout.

Safe to say, the 39-year-old, 16-year and 3x WNBA champion Sue Bird still got handles. 

In the post, Bird nominated 8x NBA All Star and 2x MVP Steve Nash and his wife Lilla to beat her score. 

Challenge accepted.

Then Nash nominated Portland Trail Blazers guard CJ McCollum.

Like the others, McCollum is passing along the challenge to fellow NBA players JJ Redick and teammate Gary Trent Jr. along with his co-host of the Pull Up Pod Jordan Schultz and Nish Walsh.

This is a great way of practicing social distancing while still communicating with one another and remaining sharp on your skills.
