LeBron James uses the Hypervolt Plus massage gun to loosen his muscles during timeouts and otherwise help him recover from the intense schedule in the NBA that includes 82 regular-season games.
Hyperice, the company behind the Hypervolt percussive devices, became the Official Recovery Technology Partner of the NBA in July 2020 and partnered with LeBron’s team, the reigning NBA champions Los Angeles Lakers, in early 2021.
But James has been using Hyperice products long before the partnerships with the NBA and the LA Lakers were made official. In fact, he was one of the first athletes after Kobe Bryant to get his hands on what is now the Hyperice Knee – a black neoprene wrap to ice your knees.
“The difference between Kobe and LeBron is that when Kobe first got it, he didn’t want anyone else to know about it. He thought it was an advantage,” remembers avid Lakers fan and Hyperice founder Anthony Katz. “When LeBron first tried it, he immediately wanted some to share with Carmelo [Anthony], Chris [Paul] and Dwyane [Wade].”
