With the NBA season at a halt and all of the Sixers being asked to self-quarantine, players have been all over social media and the video game world, documenting how they’ve been spending their time away from the court.
Josh Richardson has been exploring Twitch, Joel Embiid has been playing FIFA and Matisse Thybulle decided to go the TikTok route, documenting his time throughout the day in short videos.
The welcome video to the app really set the scene for what was to come. If this truly is Thybulle’s first time on TikTok, he’s already got a pretty solid idea of what to do.

TikTok is known for a lot of things, from voice-over work, to comedic skits and even small choreographed dances. Thybulle decided to tap into the dancing aspect, next. Though the dance he chose typically requires two people, he found a way to perform it — in front of a mirror to create the same effect. Honestly, that’s pretty smart.

It seems like he has a lot of extra time on his hands — and what does one do when they need to kill time? LEGOs, of course. Luckily for us, Thybulle documented his time building and put his work on display shortly after. It’s a small set, but he built the whole thing in one sitting, way to go, rookie.

He even took a look at a quick comedic skit. He can do it all.
I require at least one TikTok a day from Matisse to help us all get through this difficult time. pic.twitter.com/7aDDCmPTNQ— Brooke Destra (@BrookeNBCS) March 15, 2020
Not having basketball at the moment has been rough for everyone, but any form of Thybulle content can certainly brighten up your day. Let’s hope he keeps it up.
