Rockets' Donatas Motiejunas defends his workout routine
The Houston Rockets' Twitter account posted photos of players getting some off-day weightlifting in on Tuesday, but some fans were not too impressed with the numbers center Donatas Motiejunas was putting up on the squat rack.
It appears from the photo that Motiejunas is lifting 135 pounds, which is less than you would expect for a 255-pound professional athlete, so some fans decided to give him a hard time about his workout regimen.
Motiejunas heard about the haters, so he used his personal Twitter to respond.
Come on now it was warm up set ...;-))))))— Donatas Motiejunas (@DonatasMot) January 6, 2015
Good effort on the comeback by the 7-footer, but the proper response to people questioning your strength is always, "Do you even lift, bro?"
