The first day back on the job is all about getting serious, right?

Well, not quite. Like always, the NBA’s media day is filled with comical (sometimes just plain weird) photo opportunities. It’s hard to say whether the players themselves come up with some of these ideas, or this is just what really good PR looks like nowadays. I mean, who knew that balancing brownies on your face was such a desired skill to have? And here I spent all those nights shooting free throws . . .

At least we know that snacks were provided right?

Check out some of the comical shots from the pros’ first day back on the job, and let us know your favorite in the comments section.
