Re: Insider request ESPN- off season work out
These drills listed represent about five percent of the available options to a player who wants to get better. As long as the player is giving maximum effort and focuses on improvement each week, then he can't help but see positive results. And remember, this represents only one on-court workout.
Many players do two-a-days for five or six days in August and September (before heading to vet camp) plus a solid 90 minutes in the weight room. Add in film study, specialized cardio or agility training, some speed training too (and remember, this is the offseason!), and you can begin to see why the NBA features the best combination of skilled athletes in the world.
