It started with the Clippers last year, who made a game of taking photos of guys sleeping on planes. It spread around the league, the “#gotem” photos on twitter were the rage. NBA players travel a lot at odd hours and so sleeping on planes is just part of the gig, but suddenly taking their photos and shooting it out to the world on twitter was the trend.
That’s half of Team USA plus Coach Mike Krzyzewski sleeping on a plane to London for the Olympics.
