The San Antonio Spurs should do their own version of Mattise Thybulle’s vlogs
Life in the bubble in Orlando has surely been interesting for everyone involved. From getting back to playing basketball to regular COVID tests, it’s certainly been a lot to go through in such a short amount of time. But even as the San Antonio Spurs prepare to make a push for the playoffs they can still have a little fun.
If you haven’t seen them yet, you’ve got to head to YouTube to check out the vlogs that Philadelphia 76ers rookie, Matisse Thybulle has been making. Thybulle is one of the leagues more promising rookies but he’s also proven to be pretty handy with a camera.
Thybulle started the vlogs as a way to document life inside the bubble but they’ve quickly become an internet sensation, accumulating nearly a million views on each video and earning him an appearance on Good Morning America to talk about the vlogs and life in Orlando. The vlogs themselves are funny, well done, and give fans a unique perspective on what the players are going through on a day to day basis.
Which San Antonio Spur could do their own version of Thybulle’s vlogs
With an interesting blend of young players, veterans, and one of the most quotable head coaches in the league, a vlog covering the San Antonio Spurs would be must-see TV for every Spurs fan. But who would be the best candidate to start one up?
One player we can probably count out right away is Dejounte Murray. He’s been very clear that he’s in the bubble for one thing only and that’s to take care of business. But there are still quite a few other guys who would surely create some funny content.
Right now I think the leader in the clubhouse would be Keldon Johnson or Lonnie Walker. Both have infectiously positive personalities, are young enough to identify with most of the people who would likely be interested in a vlog, and have generated their share of laughs from Spurs fans and their teammates.
In terms of what the vlog could contain, just look at what Thybulle has done for inspiration. A Spurs version could have documented the fishing outing the team went on, the cornhole tournament they put together earlier this week, or just covering what the guys are doing in between practices, scrimmages, and games.
NBA fans are starved for content right now, there’s no doubt that Spurs fans would tune in for a vlog created by one of the young guys on the team. Now it’s just a matter of who’s going to create it.
We might not get a San Antonio Spurs vlog for a bit but at least the team we all love will be back in action soon enough. They take on the Milwaukee Bucks in their first scrimmage inside the bubble tomorrow at 2 pm CST.
