Reigning NBA Most Valuable Player Giannis Antetokounmpo shared that he is unable to play actual basketball while the United States is observing quarantine due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
The Milwaukee Bucks forward shared on an online report that he has no access to any actual basketball rim or hoop, and that his workouts are limited to strength and conditioning, and the use of his body and equipment.
“So, I don’t have access to hoop … A lot of NBA players have a court in their house or something, but now I just get home workouts. Ride the bike, treadmill, lift weights and pretty much stay sharp that way, but I don’t play basketball.”
Antetokounmpo has helped his Bucks to a league-best 53-12 record prior to the suspension of the 2020 NBA season.
While staying in shape is good, actually simulating basketball play is also a factor.
And with the “Greek Freak” not having such access to hoops, people will wonder whether that will affect his sharpness long-term, even just for a small percentage.
There are more than a million coronavirus cases now worldwide, and over 300,000 in the United States alone.
