The transition from the season to the offseason leaves a lot of free time for the NBA players. Don’t you wonder exactly what these guys are doing during the long and hot summer days? The most obvious answer is riding bikes, of course.

Fitness is the name of the game and NBA stars are no stranger to that. These players may not be the next Greg LeMond, but we’re confident these guys are competent enough to bike with the best of them. From LeBron James and Chris Paul, to Phil Jackson, Shaq, and Hakeem Olajuwon; they’ve all been spotted on bikes during their respective careers. Even Derrick Rose was spotted on a bike during his rehab, while J.R. Smith took his Twitter followers on a 2 a.m. bike ride. We can’t make this stuff up, just keep clicking next.
