What, exactly, did you eat yesterday?
How much bodyweight have you gained in the last 8 weeks?
What's your current strength level on the basic exercises (squat, deadlift, bench press, row, overhead press, pulldown/pull-up)?
What kind of training have you been doing (days, exercises, sets, and reps)?
Also, what's your current basketball schedule like? Do you have practices/games often?
Sorry to hit you with a bunch of questions, but your situation is kinda vague, so the more info we have, the better we can help.
The basic plan is, no surprise, eat more than you've been eating and lift heavy. As far as it being boring, that's just a matter of your own motivation. Either you've got it and the work is worth it, or you don't.
