Going like 3-4 times a week playing for at least 2 hours. And I'm talking about actually playing defense, not cherry picking, and running on the fast breaks.

any activity that raises your heart rate for an extended period of time will cause you to burn calories, so any sport will help burn fat..

no doubt. Treadmills will trick tha sh*t out of you. You think cus you can go 30 minutes on a treadmill you can run for 30 mins on tha track? Thats why I always try to go out there and run a mile at our school track.

Its good, but you'll probably still have to run a few more times.

to a point. if your doing interval training on a treadmill you will burn way more fat than playing basketball.

Dog I'm tellin you if U hoop for 3 hours or more 2-3 times a week you will lose mad weight, my homie is about 235 this n*gga started hoopin wit me for a month and he dropped 10 lbs easy, he 225 now and he still losing weight, if I go to the gym and nobody wanna run a couple games I shootaround for 2 hours, that helps too, I can only hoop on the weekends cause of my job but I'm on the court for 4 or more hours since I dont weight lift on the weekends

If you play full court basketball and you're sprinting up and down the court that is interval training. Be sure to include a stretching program like Magnificent Mobility. The last thing I would want you to do is to get plantar fasciitis or some other fu*ked up sh*t from playing all that ball and not stretching properly.

its great cuz even when you get totally exhausted you can keep going a little easier (not sprinting on breaks, slackin a little on defense, etc.) and you'll totally exhaust yourself, a lot further than I usually would on a track or machine

...but get used to running outside and you will DESPISE treadmills.

I fu*king HATE the treadmill. I can run 8 miles outside and come home in an hour feeling great. If I tried to run 8 miles on a treadmill, barring I don't die of boredom first, I'd feel like I ran 16.

I wouldn't say so... I play basketball every day...its not just playing ball that will do it, you have to ball hard and play at a certain intensity level. If all else fails, then resort to the treadmill...it works like a charm for me.

Of course............

Only advice I would give is to ice down your knee's and feet after playing. A hot tub wouldn't hurt either. :D
