With his 9th NBA season officially underway, it's important for Meyers to have all his necessities.
Take a look at some of his essentials when heading to the gym.
Basketball has been an absolute blessing in my life. Not only has it provided me with a job and the ability to compete against the best players in the world, but it has allowed me to travel the globe and learn from / meet so many amazing people. I’m forever grateful for this game and what it’s done for me in my life.
2. APPLE CRISP PROTEIN BAR
When I wake up in the morning, I like to have something refreshing and quick. A protein bar is perfect to grab on my way out the door. Level’s Apple Crisp is now tied with my other favorite flavor, Salted Brownie, because I find Apple Crisp’s light, fluffy texture and fresh apple flavor just hit the spot in the morning.
3. PIT VIPERS
These are my staple shades! As soon as I got my first pair of Pit’s back in 2018, I’ve been hooked. There’s just something about them that makes me feel like I can be this alter ego and have a good time. Plus, they are quality sunglasses with functionality.
4. BASKETBALL SHOES
I used to always wear Lebron’s, but when the Miami Heat made it to the 2020 NBA Finals against the Lakers, I needed to change to another shoe. (Can’t play in the finals against the guy whose shoe you’re wearing.) While it was a situational switch, I realized that Kobe’s had to be my new game shoe. Their durable build with the lighter weight made them fit my style of play. They’re comfortable, plus they look good.
5. LOVE & LOYALTY HOODIE
I always say that there are two things that nobody can ever take away from me: my work ethic and my character. I’ve found that through life’s adversity these qualities are core to who I am. Back when I played for the Portland Trail Blazers, I designed a few athleticwear pieces. Out of everything we created, the Love & Loyalty Hoodie was my favorite. The wearing the words “LOVE” and “LOYALTY” were my reminder of how fortunate I am to play a game I love and the people who helped me get here.
6. SALTED BROWNIE PROTEIN BAR
After a workout, I am always in need of some immediate re-fuel. Whether I was lifting or doing on-court work, it’s so nice to have something quick to tide me over until I can get home and have a full meal. My go to post-workout bar is Level’s Salted Brownie flavor. It not only tastes good, but the collagen and egg white combination actually gives me a complete protein that promotes tissue repair. It’s truly everything that I need.
Back in the day, it was always a hassle trying to use headphones with cords because they would constantly get in the way. Thankfully, my Bluetooth headphones allow me to lift, shoot, run, and do plenty of other activities without having to worry about the cord being a distraction.
8. GYM BAG
I like to use a backpack that has plenty of storage to keep everything separated and organized. This bag is ideal because it's lightweight and still fits everything I need for my workouts.
