Bizarre reason for Deandre Ayton missing Nets game leaves fans baffled

The Portland Trailblazers star, Deandre Ayton, recently missed a match due to a very bizarre reason. He had made headlines last year because of the leaked messages between him and his ex-girlfriend.

This time Ayton has made the headlines because of his unprofessionalism that was visible in the last matchup. The fans have not taken this excuse lightly and have found an opportunity to troll the Blazers star.

Deandre Ayton misses Blazers vs Nets due to bizarre reason

Many NBA players have missed games due to various reasons, and most of the time, these reasons are justified enough for their absence. However, Deandre Ayton missed the Blazers vs Nets game for a reason that many people have deemed unprofessional. Ayton’s absence was attributed to being stuck at home due to ‘sheets of ice’ in his neighborhood.

While snow and ice are common in many places, especially in the United States during the winter season, that is not typically a reason to miss a professional game. While weather conditions can sometimes pose travel challenges, Ayton’s excuse for missing the game might be considered a bit unprofessional, as a simple workaround to the problem could have been easily implemented.
