For years, NBA teams have invited speakers to spook players about the effects of alcohol.One such speaker, former NCAA All-American runner and current consultant for the U. Navy SEALs John Underwood, works from a Powerpoint citing a 2000 study that found athletes who consumed alcohol at least once a week were twice as likely as non-drinkers to suffer injury.A recent study by WHOOP, a biometric device company with NBA clients, found what researchers called a "four-day hangover" in the post-drinking health metrics of 148 student-athletes.Heart rates were 16 percent higher after a night of drinking, and a measurement of heartbeat interval variation was 23 percent lower.
Because of dehydration effects, combining alcohol with air travel is "a double whammy," a huge concern in an NBA world where an 82-game season brings 45,000 miles of air travel on average, equivalent to cumulatively spending about 140 hours in the air per season.
Something strange happens when NBA teams play on the road these days, a trend line that baffles statheads.
