Video: Joel Embiid, Jayson Tatum, and Mo Bamba rotate playing 1-on-1
The NBA offseason could be exciting or tedious, depending on when you ask.
The most exciting moment is certainly the time the clock strikes midnight on July 1 since that’s when the big name free agents start hammering out deals with prospective teams. And for sure, we were on the edge of our seats on where guys like LeBron James or DeMarcus Cousins were headed, and we all collectively had to pick our jaws off the floor too with how it ended up.
For some, Summer League is must-see TV as well just to catch a glimpse of the future of their franchise (as well as some potential two-way prospects) while getting a sneak preview of what to expect.
But for the most part, it’s a long crawl to the preseason. By the second or third week of free agency, the market starts to run dry. The NBA Awards ratings went down substantially too, raising questions as to whether it’ll make it to a third run and we revert back to the classic postseason announcements.
Drew Hanlen of Pure Sweat Basketball feels your pain.
Through the years, the basketball trainer has worked with several NBA players, showcasing their offseason regimen in his YouTube channel via the series “Unseen Hours” – injecting some much-needed hype for his extensive clientele that includes the likes of Bradley Beal and Zach Lavine.
The most recent update involves series regular Philadelphia 76ers star Joel Embiid, Boston Celtics forward Jayson Tatum, and Orlando Magic lottery pick Mo Bamba, which features a ton of cross-matchups, tumbling around, and some blood.
Look how “The Process” maneuvers his way through Tatum with some sick behind the back dribble moves or see Tatum nail a fadeaway jumper past the outstretched arms of the insanely long Bamba. It’s well worth the watch.
