COVID-19 “Mini Offseason” Transformations

COVID-19 "mini offseason" transformations

What to expect upon players’ return

After nearly five months in limbo, several teams are headed to Orlando to prepare for the return of the season on July 30.

There have been photos of multiple players floating around amidst the COVID-19 suspension, yet the vast majority of players remain unseen for 141 days. The 141 days is enough time for a turnaround that can make or break the season for these guys.

Taking advantage of the “mini offseason” will be a strong determining factor in weeding out the first 14 teams in just 53 days. Let’s take a look at some of the most noteworthy quarantine transformations.

Transformations

Arguably our biggest transformation, fans are shocked at photos of Nuggets center that have surfaced. Nikola Jokic appears to be much thinner and an even more agile athlete.

Jokic has been seen as a star player, but defense has been his biggest weaknesses throughout the season. It will be interesting to see how his dramatic transformation will translate to the energy he brings to the court.

It comes as no surprise that Lebron James is among the handful of players to receive media attention throughout the hiatus. He continues to work tirelessly on himself, while motivating his followers to see this unexpected time as an opportunity.

James Harden also been visibly putting in work and has lost some serious pounds. Harden spoke out about spending his time-off doing plenty of cardio to secure his spot in the playoffs with the Rockets.

Without a doubt come NBA’s return, the Rockets will be a serious threat. Only time will tell how the rest of the players have been spending their time in the last 141 days.
