Sliding into the DMs: everyone does it, even your favorite NBA players. While on the red carpet for this year's ESPYs, SLAM's Alexis Morgan asked a couple of the league's stars whether it really does go down in the DM and they were pretty honest.
Following a brief exhale, DeAndre Jordan simply quoted Yo Gotti: "It go down in the DM." Pacers forward Myles Turner was a bit more open with his take. "You know what, if you're really thirsty, and you really need to quench your thirst, you gotta do it," Turner said. "But, at the same time, you know, you gotta be careful what you say because even just saying 'hi' makes you look like you're thirsty." When asked whether he does slide into the DMs, Myles not only admitted to doing it, he added, "I slide head first."
While Kristaps Porzingis admitted to sliding into the DMs, Devin Booker preferred taking the high road of sorts saying, "Maybe, maybe. I'm not going to tell on myself." Alexis also questioned them about everyone's favorite app at the moment, Pokémon Go, to see if they're in on the craze. "Yes, a lot," Jordan Clarkson said. "I wouldn't be surprised if you see me running out here on the red carpet after a while, chasing Pokémon." Clearly, whether you're out in these streets or on the red carpet, when you gotta catch 'em all, it means you don't take a single day off.
