Blazers’ CJ McCollum runs into a Flamin’ Hot Cheetos quarantine crisis


Even before the Center for Disease Control recommended social distancing and cautioned the spread of the novel coronavirus, people flocked supermarkets and wholesale stores to hoard pallets of toilet paper, cleaning products, and water. Portland Trail Blazers shooting guard CJ McCollum was not among them, but he recently ran into a crisis of his own.

The need for Flamin’ Hot Cheetos.

You read that right. While people have struggled to find toilet paper, soap, sanitizer, and many other essentials the Blazers guard’s essential snack, is also missing.

It didn’t take long for someone to empathize amid this quarantine period.

Luckily enough, all McCollum has to do to get his hands on more “essential” snacks is go to a supermarket, as these aren’t necessarily in short supply. So long as McCollum isn’t clearing the entire rack to stock up for the #coronapocalypse, he should be able to get his favorite snack once a week.

McCollum, also a wine enthusiast, likely will have some other delicacies to satiate his cravings in a different way.

The 2019-20 NBA season is nowhere close to resuming until the country has managed to contain COVID-19 and treat the current cases, which could make for a long hiatus and plenty of Cheetos bags purchased from here on out.
