During the season “pause”, several NBA players found it difficult to remain in shape. That’s not the case for the Orlando Magic’s Mo Bamba.

The sophomore center put the work in quarantine in order to get better, as he claimed in a Q&A with Orlando’s season ticket-holders.

“I’ve worked my tail off during this quarantine,’’ Bamba said, per Magic.com. “I’ve taken this as an opportunity to really put on weight, really recover as far as getting rest and changing up my diet. I’ve been able to get a chef in and he drops off food occasionally. That’s probably the biggest thing that helped me put on a lot of weight.”

The No. 6 pick from the 2018 NBA Draft mixed balanced diet with “3-point shooting sessions in a private gym that he had access to during the quarantine,” via Magic.com.

Furthermore, the sophomore “big” talked on his relationship with teammates and how the Magic are looking forward to play again, should the season resumes.
