Admiral Schofield wants to be a part of the 'Hulu has live sports' movement

Admiral Schofield wants to be a part of the 'Hulu has live sports' movement

In case you weren't aware: Hulu has live sports.

The streaming service has launched an intense advertising campaign to promote its sports streaming branch, recruiting the likes of Joel Embiid, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Damian Lillard, and the United States Women's National soccer team to appear in commercials. 

And Wizards rookie Admiral Schofield wants in on the action. 

"Hulu has live sports Hulu has live sports Hulu has live sports," Schofield tweeted Wednesday afternoon, tagging Hulu in the post in an attempt to find a new revenue stream. 

But alas, it appears the 22-year-old's pleas have fallen on deaf, corporate ears for now. 

"I thought I’d try and make some money but I guess it don’t work that way lol," Schofield tweeted later in the day.

Dear brands: don't turn your back on Admiral Schofield. He genuinely wants to promote your content (and yes, earn a sponsorship check, too). 

Sure, he wasn't a first-round pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, but Schofield earned All-SEC honors during his senior season at Tennessee. And in the Wizards' last Summer League game Tuesday night, he led Washington with 16 points. And did we mention he's built like a Greek god, standing 6-6 and weighing 241 pounds? Admiral Schofield is so hot right now!

We believe Admiral Schofield can help your brand, and so does he. And even if you say no or just ignore him, he's gonna keep on trying to become your next spokesperson. 

The answer is simple, corporate suits: sign Admiral Schofield. You won't regret it. 

UPDATE: Hulu responded! Schofield may get his commerical -- and sponsorship check -- after all.

Wednesday marked a full day of quartine when the guys had opportunities to spend it just about however they pleased, as long as they logged in for their Zoom meetings and workout sessions. 

Not certain of the intensity level of the workouts, but the boys look properly exhausted.  

The food accommodations have been the main topic of conversation throughout the NBA community, and rightly so. However, Ish Smtih gave fans his own Master Chef review of dinner and seemed to be fairly content with the execution.  

"Don't take this the wrong way but you can't really mess up salad," Smith said. "Now y'all get out of here so I can play Madden."

Video games seem to be the most common way Wizards players are getting through the first day of quarantine. 

Forward Admiral Schofield had trouble setting up his gaming system because he left his HDMI cord back home. Luckily, he was able to get his hands on it in no time. 

Forward Troy Brown Jr. has also been playing a lot of Call of Duty Warzone but is looking to start an official Orlando Bubble Vlog, so keep an eye out for that in the coming days.

Brooklyn Nets add veterans Jamal Crawford and Michael Beasley ahead of NBA restart

Brooklyn Nets add veterans Jamal Crawford and Michael Beasley ahead of NBA restart

In need of some depth ahead of the NBA restart in Orlando, the Brooklyn Nets have reached an agreement with guard Jamal Crawford and are in the process of striking a deal with forward Michael Beasley, The Athletic's Shams Charania reported.

The signings come at a time in which the Nets are desperate for help as the team tries to hold its playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. Brooklyn will be without Taurean Prince, DeAndre Jordan and Spencer Dinwiddie as all three have tested positive for coronavirus. Additionally, Wilson Chandler has opted to not participate in the resumption of the season, citing that he is more concerned with the health and well-being of his family.

In addition to those four key pieces, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant are still on the sidelines as they recover from injuries. Heading into the restart, Brooklyn's roster is depleted.

Needing all the help they can get, Crawford and Beasley will immediately become a part of the Nets rotation. Crawford has 19 years of experience in the NBA, most recently averaging 7.9 points per game with the Phoenix Suns during the 2018-19 season. Beasley also last appeared during the 2018-19 campaign, playing in 26 games for the Los Angeles Lakers.

The Nets currently hold the seventh spot in the Eastern Conference and are six games ahead of the Wizards. The lack of star-power available for Brooklyn can only help Washington as it looks to try and sneak into the postseason field.

However, the Wizards will face their own challenges in Orlando. With Bradley Beal and Davis Bertans deciding to not participate in the restart, the Wizards will be without a large portion of their scoring for their eight guaranteed games.
