“I Put on Clothes to Reminisce”: An Interview With the NBA Quarantine Fits Champ Shai Gilgeous-Alexander
GQ: How are you holding up?Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: It’s difficult. I’m just putting a pause on everything. But I work out when I can, as much as I can. Obviously [I have] limited resources: I have dumbbells and I do exercises in the house, and then I hoop outside on the net in front of my driveway. I haven’t hooped outside in a couple of years, but you got to get it now. Besides that, I put on clothes to reminisce and take pictures. That’s about it
What are you doing besides working out? I saw you joined TikTok as well.
Oh, right. TikTok dances—another talent of mine. I’m a really talented guy, if you haven’t noticed.
If the basketball thing doesn’t work out, TikTok sensation is next.
I heard you’ve been working out with trainers over Zoom, too. What’s the experience there been like?
It’s been cool.
