Despite the hiatus, the un-official NBA offseason is keeping social media ablaze as CJ McCollum debuted his new puppy and Enes Kanter shared some great content.

Portland Trail Blazers guard CJ McCollum is no stranger when it comes to social media. Therefore, when he and his fiance Elise Esposito took in a new puppy to foster named Cheerio, CJ wasted no time to jump onto the Twitter-verse and gather advice on their new pal.

McCollum was not the only NBA athlete busy on social media, Boston Celtics center Enes Kanter shared a pretty comical video of how he is keeping busy during the quarantine.
