Training camps are usually grueling for NFL players. Between trying to learn all of the plays inside of their respective team’s playbook and attempting to withstand August weather for days and days on end, it can be a real grind. So many NFL coaches keep their players as loose as possible by setting up special events throughout the course of training camp to allow players some time to breathe.
On Wednesday, Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll put his team’s playbook to the side for awhile and had his Seattle players take part in a shooting competition amongst themselves. Wide receiver Tyler Lockett won that contest, and when he did, Carroll then surprised him by giving him the opportunity to go head-to-head with Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas in a shooting contest. Just one problem: Thomas came to training camp ready to play, and he absolutely destroyed Lockett by going a perfect 12-for-12, even as Seahawks players flipped out while he did it.
You can watch Thomas' incredible performance in the clip above. After he was done, Carroll praised him for putting on the best shooting performance the Seahawks have ever seen:
Thomas also thanked the team for inviting him to camp and said it was "fun" going up against Lockett:
After seeing how well he shot, we bet it was.
