On staying in shape
It’s been understood that the players won’t be in the same condition when the league resumes as they were pre-hiatus. The league was entering the playoffs, so the players had already been in basketball mode for six months before being shut down.
We also don’t know how long the hiatus will have lasted, as it’s been speculated that the league will continue in June. This would have been three full months, which is the same length of the NBA offseason, as the NBA Finals wrap up in June and the players report to mini-camp in September.
House has been working on his overall conditioning, and will certainly not need time to get back into shape, based on hearing him say what his workouts have consisted of.
Jogging, running, doing sprints here and there, working on my ball handling, and shooting. Of course you’ve got to stay in decent shape in case things do decide to pick back up and clear away. That way I’ll be ready to play and compete at a high level.
It’s good that House has remained cognizant of the big picture, which is that the league does indeed plan to resume so it can crown a champion. He’s 100 percent correct about the importance of staying in shape. He’s been training quite hard considering the fact that he’s working out by himself.
Not only has he been working on his ball-handling and shooting, but he’s even been doing sprints and working on his speed work.
