Sleepy Dad LeBron Got His Rest And The Spurs Felt It
December 7, 2018
Last week LeBron James was a guest on wine-drunk lifehacker Tim Ferriss’s podcast where he talked about the day-to-day maintenance of one of the most natural wonders on earth: that is, his body. Among other personal information, James revealed that he listens to the “rain on leaves” sound all night long, and that he gets to sleep for eons.
“But the more, and more, and more time that you get those eight – if you can get nine, that’s amazing. Sometimes, I even get 10 hours of sleep. And if I don’t get those eight to nine hours at night, then I’ll go home. I’m going to tell you right now, Tim, when I leave here, I’m going to go home and take a nap for probably about two and a half hours too.”
Sleep seems to be the buzzword de rigeur among the thinkovator world these days, but it’s easy enough to see why it’d be essential for a guy still logging 35 minutes a game in season 16. Slumbering like that does have its consequences, however. Yesterday, a deeply normie LeBron wrote in his diary about some creeping feelings of washedness.
Man I’m washed!! I went to bed at 8:30 last night and woke up at 7:30am. Man what! I literally slept for 11 hrs. Missed my company Xmas holiday party and everything. 🤦🏾♂️!!
The washedness couldn’t stop him, though, because later that day, LeBron would drop 42 on the Spurs, including 20 in the final frame to dig out of a deficit and secure the lead. In one four-minute span, he crushed San Antonio with 14 straight points, many of the transition freight-train variety, plus a pair of deep threes.
Take a look and enjoy:
Pretty amazing, maybe LeBron should consider oversleeping the holiday party every day.
