NYT: Napping on Game Day Is Prevalent Among N.B.A. Players

The New York Times talks about the benefits of napping, the sleep routines of several NBA players, and interviews the Trailblazer's sleep doctor. ---------------------------- "Everyone in the league office knows not to call players at 3 p.m.," said Adam Silver, the league’s deputy commissioner. "It’s the player nap." ..... Some N.B.A. teams have received an education in the art of napping from Dr. Charles Czeisler, the director of the Division of Sleep Medicine at Harvard Medical School and chief of the sleep medicine division at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. Czeisler, known in the N.B.A. as the sleep doctor, has consulted with the Boston Celtics, the Portland Trail Blazers and the Minnesota Timberwolves about the virtues of receiving enough sleep. Napping was a significant piece of the tutorial. ----------------------------
