ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — LeBron James didn’t get to be a four-time MVP by taking it easy, especially in the weight room.
The video below comes from the Miami Heat, who were filming footage for their pregame scoreboard introduction videos. There are a bunch of videos and pictures of Heat players doing various things, including Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade casually walking in front of angry geysers, but the first video is the most remarkable. It features LeBron easily doing dips with heavy chains around his neck, flipping oversized tires, and tossing heavy ropes as though they’re shoelaces.
The lesson here, I think, is that if you end up at the health club on the machine next to LeBron, might be wise to wander off to another part of the place, unless you don’t mind getting showed up.
