The NBA had its first off night of the season yesterday as the United States of America ground to a halt to celebrate Thanksgiving.
With the 2016/17 campaign beginning to take shape, the off night - ahead of all 30 teams playing on a packed Black Friday schedule - gave players, coaches, staff and journalists the chance to be with their loved ones.
For some, it involved being on the road; Josh Richardson and the Miami Heat were between trips to Detroit and Memphis, but for all, it was a chance to appreciate where they were in life.
Messages poured in on social media from the game's biggest names. Kevin Durant was quick to ensure people enjoyed the food, especially those 'sweet ass baked beans', as he put it.
Thanksgiving is a huge celebration in the States and the National Football League often takes center stage. Last night was no different as three matches went ahead, and the L.A. Clippers were at the AT&T Stadium to watch the Dallas Cowboys beat the Washington Redskins in an instant classic.
With Black Friday now upon us, the NBA's crazy schedule is only going to add to what is already one of the craziest days in the United States. It's going to be fun.
