We’re in April and still no live sports now.

Listen to your team news NOW.

If you haven’t lost all hope and resorted to books with no pictures, I’ve got some viewing options for you. Use them however you see fit: as a guide, a jumping-off point or even a gauge of what you should socially distance yourself from. Whatever helps.

Here are some ideas for Friday, April 3:

MOVIE

Coffee and Kareem is the latest Netflix Original to be released. It’s a comedy that stars Ed Helms and Taraji P. Henson. This thing looks wild.

Of course, since its a comedy, Coffee and Kareem’s synopsis on IMDb is fairly simple:

“Twelve-year-old Kareem Manning hires a criminal to scare his mom's new boyfriend — police officer James Coffee — but it backfires, forcing Coffee and Kareem to team up in order to save themselves from Detroit's most ruthless drug kingpin.”

Now, I don’t think the Motion Picture Association of America rates Netflix movies. If it did, based on what’s in the trailer, Coffee and Kareem would get a hard R.

ON TODAY

Tonight’s “Classic Celtics” game on NBC Sports Boston is the final game between the Celtics and Rockets in the 1986 NBA Finals. It all starts at 7 p.m.

The final game between the Red Sox and Cardinals in 2013 World Series also airs tonight at 7 p.m., over on NESN.

The NBA’s “Players-Only” 2K tournament starts tonight on ESPN. There’s a preview at 7, then Kevin Durant and Derrick Jones Jr. face off at 7:30 p.m. ESPN 2 will then host the rest of the games from 8:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m.
