It couldn’t be more unprofessional: NBA star DeAndre Ayton, who just failed disappointingly with his Phoenix Suns at the Dallas Mavericks, sleeps no more than two hours a night, according to a report by “ESPN”. He is open about the reason.

Deandre Ayton has established himself as one of the most promising young talents in the NBA. Last season, Ayton played a pivotal role in the Suns’ promotion to the NBA Finals, averaging 15.8 points, 11.8 rebounds and 1.1 blocks per game in the NBA playoffs.

In fact, during the season that just ended in disappointment for the Suns, Ayton averaged 17.2 points per game and helped the Suns record their best record in franchise history.

Ayton has received praise from fans and pundits across the NBA. But in the Suns’ Game 7 loss to Dallas, Ayton was one of the most questionable characters.

In this all-or-nothing game, Ayton only played 17 minutes and had just five points, a measly four rebounds and two assists. And why? Well, head coach Monty Williams called it an “internal” decision.

Williams and Ayton have not spoken to each other since and the young big man, who is available on a free transfer next season, feels unappreciated. He is rumored to be on the radar of many teams, with some appearing ready to give him a maximum contract.

No matter where he plays in the future, Ayton will need to work on his professionalism – on and off the pitch.

ESPN reports, “Ayton typically wakes up around 6 a.m. after only sleeping for about two hours.” The reason for this unhealthy sleep pattern? His addiction to video games.

ESPN continues: “After breakfast he has time for a short round of gaming, then it’s off to practice. Then it’s back home to continue gambling and practicing moves on the virtual playing field. On game days, Ayton is focused on his job, but the schedule also includes time for video games

Ayton: “I have brothers in the UK. I have family in Jamaica and the Bahamas. During the game we talk about all sorts of things. Whoever we just beat up, we talk about it and laugh about it. I don’t go to bed before 4 or 5 a.m., that’s how serious it gets.”
