Leandro Barbosa and Shaun Livingston are in Brazil working out together. Mostly that involves running in sand. And also, apparently, chilling on boats.
Working hard in Brazil, with my boy Shaun Livingston @Sdot1414 and @IamDosSantos from soccer to basketball we don't stop @FLuciano3 and @viniciusftv!! #BeepBeep #JustDoIt #Nike #DubNation Treino pesado com meu parceiro Shaun Livingston @Sdot1414 e @IamDosSantos, seja no futevolei ou no basquete o ritmo é sempre para frente @FLuciano3 e @viniciusftv!! #BeepBeep #JustDoIt #Nike @NikeRio
Here they are running in sand:
Let me tell you what, I've played frisbee on the beach once or twice (what's up Stinson?) and I can confirm that running in sand is way harder than running on, say, a basketball court. So yeah, good on them. Side note: Barbosa's long-limbed prance is just too good.
Here's another family shot:
Also, this is cooooooool. Can we make this into an Olympic sport? I mean, hell the Olympics are about to be in Rio.
It's never too late to learn something new! Today was a very special day, I was able to acquire the basic knowledge of a sport that I've always wanted to know, the Footvolley!! No words to thank my mentors and professors @FLuciano3 and @viniciusftv it was a real class! Thank you very much guys!!! #BeepBeep #FootVolley @IamDosSantos Nunca é tarde demais para aprender algo novo!! Hoje foi um dia muito especial, pude aprender um pouco do esporte que eu sempre tive vontade de conhecer, o Futevôlei!! Sem palavras para agradecer aos mestres e professores @FLuciano3 e @viniciusftv pela verdadeira aula!! Muito obrigado por proporcionarem um dia muito feliz para mim!!! #BeepBeep #FuteVôlei @IamDosSantos
Lastly, I'm just gonna go ahead and assume this is in Brazil as well. Go get it Shaun, you've earned it.
So, what have we learned?
The key to a successful, sustained career in the NBA is sandrunning, sandvolleyballeying, and chilling on boats. Sounds pretty nice.
