They say sports and exercise is one way to get rid of excess stress, and whether or not that was the reason for Chris Brown‘s basketball binge on Tuesday afternoon, at least he blew off some steam.

Brown was spotted hooping it up at New York City’s infamous West 4th Street basketball courts — commonly known as The Cage — following a roller-coaster day that began with him flying into a rage on the set of Good Morning America. After getting hit with multiple questions about Rihanna by GMA host Robin Roberts, Brown allegedly smashed a window backstage and then tore off his shirt before exiting the building.

Photos of a shirtless Brown just seconds after the incident showed the singer in a sweaty huff.
