    I don't know for sure but I would be willing to bet that LeBron has helped shape his workout and nutrition routines to better serve him. Players evolve if they really want it that bad and I think some players get a bad wrap for not being outspoken like Kobe or MJ that they're not working hard day in and out. Anyone who believes AD doesn't work hard to be better is either a fool or doesn't know what they're talking about. There's always room for improvement in regards to how you prepare yourself.

    Also on a side note just because he isn't a social media darling and posting what he eats every 5 minutes doesn't mean he's not taking the necessary steps to get his body ready, his mind and working in the gym to improve his game. Some guys just aren't putting their entire lives on social media for approval and I for one can respect and appreciate that.

    Also this post isn't directed at you Kareem, just kind of adding on to what you were saying

    I hope he's fully recovered and ready to go. The only thing I've seen recently on AD, was the video of him and Schroder at the gymn. One of these guys, Stein or somebody else stated that AD hadn't starting doing on court work yet. I think it was due to the groin injury tho. Guys are putting in the work full steam right now, training camp kicks off in a month. If there are any lingering health concerns, we will start hearing about it then.

    I remember seeing that too, something about AD either not doing any on court stuff, or any serious gym work. Something like that. I think it was maybe 2-3 weeks after our season ended.

    Fine, whatever, let the dude heal and recover, but I’d bet he’s ramping up pretty good now in late August.

    Rumor is he got drunk and friends shaved his unibrow off while he slept.

    he’s letting it grow back in complete privacy while he directs his anger into his training.

    we should see a fit and focused AD this year.

    Understandable. Dennis was a terrible floor general. Great 6th man, but he thought he was something he's not and we tried it out.

    From strictly a floor general perspective, I'll take a 55 year old Rondo over Dennis in his prime... whenever that is

    lol. More truth to that than you imagined, considering anyone who sees me at the computer says I look like a caveman.

    Wait. Him. who ever sees him at the computer says he looks like a caveman.

    How many of Russ' assists is AD going to finish this year?

    My estimate:

    It has been extremely quiet around AD. It's almost as if he wasn't on the team anymore, or some kind of afterthought. I expect/hope that means he's working out and preparing for the new season with the "I'll show those m***********s" attitude".

    For as much as people like to point out his lack of aggressiveness (which was a problem last season), he's been a very dominant player throughout his career so far. No reason to expect any less next season, especially now hat he should have either Bron or Russ next to him at all times. Can't wait to see him on the floor.

    ... or he's about to retire. We'll know soon ;)
    I expect to see an out of shape, skinny-fat dude with some type of new, lingering injuries.
