The NBA hiatus has forced Milwaukee Bucks starting point guard Eric Bledsoe to try new things.

On a conference call with Bucks reporters on Friday, Bledsoe admitted he cooked today and jokingly told teammate Khris Middleton and the reporters that he hopes his daughter enjoyed it and doesn’t get sick:

Via Eric Woodyard of ESPN:

“I’m just waking up like I’m going to practice every day,” the Bucks guard said. “Waking up around 9 o’clock. I’ve been doing weird stuff like going to the grocery store. Stuff that I don’t normally do. I actually cooked this morning.

“That’s a lie,” Khris Middleton interrupted to scold Eric Bledsoe. “You’re not supposed to go to the grocery store, Bled.”

In response, Bledsoe said: “I cooked this morning. I don’t know how it tasted, but my daughter ate it. I hope she doesn’t feel sick. It’s been fine with the sleep pattern or whatnot.”

The Bucks had the top record in the NBA before the 2019-20 season was suspended. Milwaukee had an impressive record of 53-12.

Prior to play getting suspended indefinitely, Bledsoe was averaging 15.4 points, 4.6 rebounds and 5.4 assists for the Bucks. The 30-year-old was also shooting 48.2 percent from the field, 34.8 percent from beyond the arc and 81.3 percent from the free-throw line.

Hopefully, Bledsoe’s cooking isn’t as bad as he makes it seem. The Bucks guard and the rest of the players in the NBA are praying the season starts back up again in the summer if the coronavirus dies down.

The Bucks fell to the Toronto Raptors in the 2019 Eastern Conference Finals in six games. The team was motivated to avenge last year’s playoff blunder.
