    good point, I also think when a kid who puts as much time into basketball then has it taken away, its easy for him to focus on something else. Especially with the motivation of missing the NCAA's last year. I think ppl equate GN being out of shape to being lazy, as skilled as he is, he obviously spends time improving his game, he just focused on other things than his body.

    You are what you eat. He started eating well. That alone makes a world of difference.

    What was the point of quoting me after I had addressed my point 30 minutes earlier after 2 other posters quoted me?
    I quoted you after I read your post and hadn't read further along.

    Also, I usually don't spend much time looking at pictures of dudes with their shirts off, but today I'm making an exception.

    This thread feels gay, NTTAWWT.


    Merry Christmas!
    I wrapped it up and sent it
    With a note saying "I Love You" I meant it
    Now I know what a fool I've been
    But if you kissed me now I know you'd fool me again

    That seems reasonable. From beginning of April until now is almost 4 months which is ample time for such a transformation considering the resources available in the athletic department. Heck, I did P90X in my basement several years ago, dropped 30 pounds in 90 days and added a good amount of bulk and definition and that was on my own with a few sets of dumbbells and a chin up bar. If you dedicate yourself to eating the right foods and have a fleet of trainers, nutritionists and physical therapists at your disposal this should be the expected results given his starting point.

    Re: Niang transformation

    Georges lost quite a bit of weight after his freshmen season as well. You could tell in the cap city last year. The difference this year is Hoiberg wants him to keep it off. They asked Niang to put weight back on after last summer because he was our biggest post.

    You can't say that until you see how he looks slimmed down and strengthened up against quality competition. You're underestimating how rare some of his skills are for a 6'7" player. Had he arrived in this condition and produced similarly there would have been talk.

    Apparently you haven't heard the story about Nerlens Noel. What rock have you been hiding under?
