Athletes in the NBA are asked to endure some grueling stretches of practices and games, especially given this condensed season. With so many back-to-back's and even some back-to-back-to-back games, it'll be amazing if all players don't end up hurt and completely fatigued by the time the playoffs roll around.
Not only are the players asked to entertain us on the court, but they're also committed to the community in more ways than just playing basketball. The Lakers' Pau Gasol stepped up in a huge way during the Lakers 2012 Signing Day.
Though I'm sure the phyiscal demands of a basketball season are intense, this session of autographs seems like it would be an incredibly exhausting experience. The time lapse below shows Pau's continuous run of putting pen to paper – and other surfaces.
Check out the video below to watch him sign away.
