There are many tangible basketball traits that can be improved over time and repetition, but work ethic isn’t something that can be taught. It’s what made the San Antonio Spurs such a powerful organization over the course of these last few decades and it’s how the league’s superstars have made it to the top tier of this sport. Spurs rookie Keldon Johnson is showing a similar work ethic despite his first season finishing just a week ago.
Social media has showcased Johnson’s early-offseason routine which includes intense workouts and a ton of work getting done in an empty gym. These are the moments that transform a player from an intriguing prospect to a future star. Outworking the competition is how the greats achieve their dreams of becoming the prime examples of their craft.
