NBA players take breaks during the season, but not exactly short breaks in the offseason. Players mostly enjoy the offseason spending time with family and going on vacations. But for some, the loss they took in the previous season becomes a driving factor to push themselves and prepare for the next season.

LeBron James and the Lakers didn’t see the playoffs this year. After a struggling season and a year full of criticism, some players seem to be back on track with their training. The offseason can be huge for some players. There are often guys who come out of the offseason improved, they do show out initially but might slow down after a while.
