Current NBA big man Boban Marjanovic and former star point guard Steve Nash are among those in the basketball community taking part in the “Stay At Home Challenge.”
The movement–which was started in part by MLS defender Tommy Thompson of the San Jose Earthquakes, is meant to encourage people of the world to remain indoors in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic that has devastated countries around the globe.
Though it was popularized by soccer stars both at home and abroad, both Marjanovic and Nash are partaking, fittingly using a role of toilet paper–which is suddenly an item of very high demand worldwide–as their juggling material of choice.
Boban showed off some decent footwork and dexterity before launching the ball into orbit:

Nash’s participation should hardly be a surprise. After all, he is an ardent soccer fan and also did some commentating for Bleacher Report during last year’s UEFA Champions League:
Not bad, Steve! Not bad!

Pretty good stuff from the two-time MVP. The kids are always a nice touch.
Ideally, fun and goofy challenges such as these will raise awareness and encourage people to stay as isolated as possible in order to curb the spread of coronavirus.
