Staying up all night is for teenagers, losers, and people who work 3rd shift.

Be a man and go to bed early and wake up before dawn.

NBA players stay up. They finish games at about 10:30 and have to interview, shower, and transport. After all that exertion, they will probably eat a meal and won't be able to sleep right away. Plus many are out making it rain on the tip rail with all their dough and that is fact. I really think this is what the Warriors problem is. Staying up too late. In order to play with the upmost intensity, you are going to need ample rest and sleep. That's just how it is.

I often played right after night shifts without sleep. You don't feel too tired when playing, but after the game u think u might die

Yes.

And vice versa: How little balls can you sleep on? That's a tough one.

You're not going to be physically tired just mentally. Might need a tampon for that vaj though

some truth to this. 6 is what I usually get but I could still run fine on 5. I play worse ball when I oversleep I think

Up until these last few months, where my body is suddenly incapable of doing anything, I loved living off of 5-6 hours to sleep for anything. We always had practice at 9AM on Saturdays, and I was the Captain. So I'd wake up like 6-6:30, I'd eat, I'd stretch, I'd walk my Dog, watch a little TV, I'd shit, I'd shower. And I'm calling the guys I'm picking up. Never had a problem.


I got home at like 6 and went to bed at 7:20...I slept thru 4 alarms and woke up 25minutes ago.
