You heard me right. NBA players are playing better because of the dating app Tinder.
In an article by Tom Haberstroh of ESPN, Haberstroh reported that a general manager and a player said people are playing better because of the "Tinderization of the NBA."
Essentially what this is, is that players are playing better on the road because they aren't going out to clubs to pick up women anymore because they just go on Tinder. Now they wake up from a full night sleep, not hungover, and can pop a J in someones face to the best of their ability.
The article also quotes a former NBA All-Star saying, "It's absolutely true that you get at least two hours more sleep getting laid on the road today versus 15 years ago. No schmoozing. No going out to the club. No having to get something to eat after the club but before the hotel."
The player also added that he prefers using Instagram to Tinder.
Isn't that an amazing problem to have? You're so tired from your night of plowing chicks and partying that you score slightly less points in a basketball game the next day. Well thank god that's not a problem anymore. Tinder has streamlined the whole process.
Must be nice.
