You only become better with weight training. They have the best strength coaches in the world. They aren't doing stupid, pointless exercises. They're having them do functional strength exercises, not bodybuilding shit.
I agree with you with everything. But I will never forget once watching a youtube vid of Hibbert doing trap deadlifts with basketball shoes....I mean when I train I make sure to deadlift barefooted or with flat shoes, not with some basketball squishy shoes, let alone if you're a 7 footer who is probably even more prone to the slightest mistakes when weightlifting.
