I’m sure it’s been awhile since you’ve played Bingo. If you’re reading this you’re likely not 5 … or 85 …. But just imagine the hilarity that will ensue if you get a few adults together, a few drinks, and you line up some cards for everyone with five squares down, five across across — plop a star in the middle and turn on the next best NBA matchup.
We decided to have fun with the hypothetical. Below are 24 items you can choose from to fill out your adult Bingo basketball card before this weekend’s All-Star game in Toronto, or any upcoming NBA game for that matter.
X marks the spot very time …
Steph Curry drains a three
Which will happen a lot. Like, an absurd amount. A record clip. Seriously, you have no idea. Highlights count.
Andre Drummond misses a free throw
This will happen a lot too. Like, an absurd amount. You have no …. you get my point.
Greg Popovich gives a one-word response
Best interviewee in the sport.
You hear “David Blatt”
He no longer has a job, but they won’t stop talking about LeBron’s string of coaches.
LeBron James throws down a dunk
He’s still a monster.
You hear “All-Star snub”
There’s a lot of them … every year … not everyone can make a 12-man roster! Sorry Damian!
You see Drake
Is he at every game?? The Toronto fan will DEFINITELY be at the All-Star Game.
You see the CN Tower
They’ll have plenty of exterior shots All-Star weekend.
You see a Sting promo
He’s performing at the All-Star Game half time show …. Yup …. Sting … You know, the guy from The Police …. Message In A …. never mind.
Isaiah Thomas is referred to Isiah Thomas
Isaiah is not Isiah’s son.
You hear “Kobe’s last” anything
Dude is retiring at the end of this year. The final leg of the farewell tour is underway.
The Warriors get compared to the ’96 Bulls
Golden State is making a run at the famous all-time best 72-10 record of Jordan, Pippen, Rodman and Co.

It’s what he does …
Talk of the Spurs’ dominance without Tim Duncan
It’s now the Kawhi Leonard – LaMarcus Aldridge era
Chris Bosh/Dwyane Wade hug LeBron
It will happen during All-Star weekend. It’s what they do.
Star teammates connect for a bucket
There are many possibilities here. Imagine it’s NBA Jam and there are only two players you can choose.
John Wall is caught dancing
It’s what he does … fairly well.
There’s an air ball
It happens more than you might think.
You see a Hall-of-Famer in the stands
The bigger the game, the more stars sitting courtside.
You hear “Kevin Durant” and “Lakers”
The Lakers want him after this season more than you want a toilet made of solid gold.
There’s a Chris Paul assist
THIS is what he does
You see a WAG
Not sure who Marky Mark has with him here, but this would certainly count. Ooh la la.
You hear “Carmelo Anthony” and “trade”
Or better yet, simply when you hear the words “Knicks” and “trade.”
You see or hear “Fear the beard”
Seriously, we’re kinda over it … Ah, who are we kidding. Would we even recognize him if he shaved? The answer is no. A HARDen “no.”
Have fun. Party responsibly.
