With virtually everyone in the world on lockdown right now due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are being forced to be creative with how we are passing the time.

Steph Curry is one of those people. In an interview with Ben Cohen of the Wall Street Journal, the two-time MVP admitted to not shooting a basketball for the first two weeks after the NBA was shutdown.

His wife Ayesha ordered a hoop for him online and that is where the basketball genius had his struggles:

“I got overwhelmed looking at the manual. I was very confident in myself going in, that was shot down pretty quick.”

Curry said it took him five hours to complete the job, so about as long as it takes me to put together a table from Ikea.

Have you tried to put together anything new to help pass the time during the lockdown? What is the most frustrating project you have worked on?
