Los Angeles Lakers center Timofey Mozgov probably won’t be playing much more this season—not because he’s injured, but because the coaches want the team’s younger players to get more on-c0urt experience. With their horrible 20-50 record, the Lakers aren’t fighting for a playoff spot, so why not?

Mozgov will still travel and practice with the team. The 7-foot-1 Russian native surely won’t enjoy sitting on the bench for the rest of the season, but Mozgov has found a way to still have fun.
During Monday’s workout, Mozzy was crushing Push-Ups and jamming to music when he decided to start dabbing between reps. Besides having fun by dabbing, he was working his core more than he would with regular Push-Ups. By forcing his body not to rotate, the dab make the exercise more challenging.
The best part of the video is Mozgov’s joy and excitement when he finishes the set. In the 54 games he played with the Lakers, Mozgov averaged 7.4 points and 4.9 rebounds a game.
