Rockets’ Patrick Beverly looks like Bane when he works out

Aug 15, 2014, 8:45 AM EDT

I haven’t formally checked, but I’m fairly sure the “venom”/gas mask Bane wears in the Batman comic books and movies would violate the NBA’s banned substance list.

That’s not what the Rockets’ Patrick Beverley is doing, that mask helps simulate high altitude giving an already exhausting NBA off-season workout a thin air, gasping-for-breath quality. Beverley better be putting in the work this summer because without Jeremy Lin in town a lot more point guard load is going to fall on him (the guys behind him on the depth chart are much younger and more raw).

But man, that mask makes him look like Bane. I bet there was a great workout program at the Peña Dura prison.

I know who Beverley should go out as for Halloween this year.
