NBA and WNBA stars encourage youngsters to sharpen skills during coronavirus lockdown with #JrNBAatHome – The Sun

NBA and WNBA players are encouraging youngsters in coronavirus lockdown to use their time wisely – and sharpen up their basketball skills.

Schools and gyms might be closed but there’s nothing stopping kids (or adults) from bouncing a ball up and down, outside or indoors.

Devonte Graham of the Charlotte Hornets and the Seattle Storm’s Jewell Loyd are among a number of top stars who have produced a series of video clips with basketball drills you can do at home.

Not only are you being asked to work on your skills, however, the players want to see you in action and are encouraging those taken part to send in clips of them performing the workouts and routines.

The drills range from everything to warming up, stretching and fitness work to dribbling, shooting and passing.

You’ll be looking like Steph Curry in no time.

The videos are all available on the Jr NBA social media pages, while you can send in clips with the hashtag #JrNBAatHome.
