The 42-year-old Carter is set to play his 22nd season in the NBA.
I am in awe
42?!?!, the man is a super hero!
Very good article on ESPN about fatigue and sleep deprivation issues in the NBA. It's becoming a real problem, particularly in a league like the NBA with so many games for so long and so much traveling to different time zones.
What's even worse, there's not much that can be done under the current format of the league, other than some quick fixes via scheduling to reduce the strain of those trips. One thing that could help is to have more early games, but, of course, that would f*ck up attendance to arenas, particularly on weekdays, so that's out of consideration.
That all means players have to be extra careful with their rest. Some are, many more aren't because they don't care or don't know about the consequences and how to do it.
It matters. It's a problem. It doesn't have an easy fix.
The 2-way contract is incredibly taxing on the body, too. I don’t know how those guys do it. Damion Lee practically looked like a zombie at times with the kind of travel he dealt with.
I agree, I don’t know how you fix that. It’s an issue, for sure, but definitely not a quick fix. I’m not sure there’s even a “bandaid” fix for it, either.
LoL, Lebron is an ass!
