Anybody else exhausted now that the NBA playoffs have begun? I feel like I spent the past two days in a basketball vacuum for 48 hours but it was 100% worth it, especially with all the road teams winning and lower seeds finding ways to win contested games.
A few weeks ago before the league’s second season started up, Finish Line talked shop with adidas athletes Taj Gibson and Joakim Noah of the Bulls plus the Rockets Dwight Howard, Jeremy Lin, Patrick Beverly, Omri Casspi and Donatas Motiejunas. It was a rare chance to see these guys unwind and hear them share what it takes not just to make it as a pro but to be seen as a baller on Any Court, USA.
That Joakim sure is a competitive fellow.
