In the report card of how Longhorns in the NBA spent their lockout, check the box for “Spends Time Wisely.”

Kevin Durant:

1. Played Flag Football at Oklahoma State and didn’t get injured

2. Made various cameos at college basketball games across the country

3. Filmed Warner Brothers’ movie “Switch”

Tristan Thompson:

1. Took fall classes at UT

2. Hung out at UT basketball games and in the gym at Cooley to stay in shape

Royal Ivey:

1. Worked on finishing his degree in elementary education at UT

2. Was a student assistant coach on the Texas bench

Cory Joseph:  Traveled the world while playing for Team Canada

Avery Bradley: Played in the pro-am games and the Impact League in Las Vegas

So all in all, not a bad way to spend time for some of the Longhorns we know. And it explains why you may have seen them out and about in Austin. But that time has come to an end and it’s now time to get ready for some NBA. It’s great news for sports fans and even better news if you’re a Dallas Mavericks fan, because that banner can finally be raised. Bad news if you enjoyed seeing your favorite NBA players at your neighborhood coffee shop or at the grocery store, but it’s certainly been nice to see some familiar faces around town in the meantime.
