Default 'Extended workouts' after losses are such BS.

I don't care who's doing it.

It's a dog n pony show with little to no value.

Perhaps you, as a player, were actually good enough but your teammates just didn't show up that night?

The body needs rest after a game, not more exercise LMAO. Ever heard of the concept of overtraining? Regular practices and pre-game warmups are enough to iron out the kinks. You're not going to "get better" in an extended workout.

I wish these guys would stop pulling these stunts for the media so their stans have an excuse to praise their "heart and commitment".

TMac's career would have ended sooner if he did 'extended workouts' after games.

What he needed was more off-season training and preparation. Not 'extended workouts' after the body's in need of rest and recovery.

Enjoy your dog n pony shows!

You never played on a team sport? After Hockey games if I do not perform well I will get a few buddies and go to another rink to practice.

Nothing wrong with taking a loss seriously.

Some players bodies genuinely don't need the same level of rest and sometimes a loss just bothers you to the point where rest is genuinely not your main concern.

It might not make a difference in your game but it's not ALWAYS just for show.

I do admit though....this one seems for show. He put up his stats.

What kind of drills would you do?

The only thing I can see a player working on that makes sense after a loss is free throws and jumpers.

We take turns bringing the puck up and forcing ourselves to make a certain amount of passes before one of us is allowed to shoot. We put a hockey cover (with holes made for goals) to practice our accuracy.

Then we do a free for all to work on our puck handling.

It's really fun and it helps us out a lot.

I imagine basketball players who do this do close to the same thing.

Yes, he never played a sport.

It's not the physical part of it. It's the mental part. You go back to the gym and work things over, while thinking about what went wrong, what you could've done better. It's the fact that you're doing something different - you're penalizing yourself and taking things more serious than other days. You think about things that motivate you to work harder the next day. So no, it's not all for show.
























Well, maybe for Lebron it is

You really think a professional athlete is going to overtrain because they work out after playing basketball for 40 minutes?

- Look, Lebron seemed to change his whole basketball outlook after the 2011 season....he seemed morefocused on becoming a better player.

- He has definatley took the Kobe/MJ role of developing his game...and work ethic in the past 2 years.

- I think anyone watching his game can se vast improvements the past couple of seasons.....constantley working on your game/maintaining your body year round will only help......something TMAC never did.

Go back to watching T-mac's highlights. Or maybe you could follow him in China right now, to see how "not working out his game" or not being serious about the game is helping him.

I consider it to be self-punishment, and just a good way to keep yourself hungry. Do not settle with the loss, beat up your second unit at least. Keep attacking. :That wolf:

T-Mac was cursed with body ailments that curtailed his workouts.

No amount of training could have helped the relieve the back spasms he faced for life.



LeBron is better than Kobe ever was, btw. He doesn't need an 'extended workout' although I'm sure he had better intentions than Kobe did. LeBron probably does it to inspire his teammates while Kobe does it purely to remove blame from himself to imply he's the "only one trying". Giving himself an excuse to jack up more shots and isolate teammates not willing to do 'extended workouts'.
