Draymond Green made a guest appearance on the All-In podcast, where he talked about multiple things from the current NBA season. With all the COVID protocols NBA put in place, it’s been a remarkable season, and on top of that, we had the opportunity to watch some great basketball. One interesting thing that Green talked about is the impact life under a pandemic had on some players in terms of being in shape. Apparently, some were affected more than others.
“I won’t throw anybody under the bus, I’m talking about one superstar specifically, I’ve never seen him so out of shape. And it’s not Luka or James Harden. He’s so out of shape right now. With the bubble and everything and I completely understand it.James Harden, via All-In Podcast
Draymond didn’t want to mention any names even though James Harden was probably the first name that comes to everybody’s mind. Draymond said he had a conversation with that person about the issues, and it seems more players are struggling with the same problem. When you see some superstar players perform superbly in almost any game, it’s hard to imagine some of them are out of shape, but apparently, it’s true.
it’s been a very tough season to say the least, I think a lot of guys are struggling with and we all want to continue and earn our living. You have to do what you have to do.James Harden, via All-In Podcast
It’s hard to predict which player Draymond is talking about, but since we are all living through a pandemic, it’s understandable some people had hard times adjusting. It hasn’t been easy, especially if that player lived longer in the bubble and therefore didn’t have time to recover and take the necessary time off when the season ended.
