I think you're overrating the ability for these athletes to train during the season. I've never heard of players adding size DURING the season (unless you're a fatty like Byfuglien who can't keep weight off). You act as if he's going to be spending every morning and every offday with Gary Roberts doing crazy exercises and following a nutrionist around.

The offseason is when players transform their bodies. The season is when they maintain it, and recover from the grueling marathan that is a season. Yes they'll spend plenty of time in the gym, but nobody is going to be killing themselves in the weightroom mid-season, because their bodies can't handle that.
