    Coming off a torn meniscus that led to questions about his weight, he took over the game in the fourth quarter last night against San Antonio with 22 points including four-for-four from the three-point stripe in his NBA regular-season debut.

    The big guy has got some soft hands and quick feet.

      The reports are that he is in the 265-280 area. My guess is that come next season, he will be around 240-250. His body won't be able to handle that level of athleticism if he stays above 260. His knee is already in a bad spot and there is no healing that. It will affect him long term.

          If only he could have made free throws against Michigan St. last year.

          Dude is an amazing athlete. Incredible, really. A joy to watch him play. Hope he stays healthy and enjoys a long and prosperous career. God given talent and grace on display. You're the fat toad.

            His legs won't hold up to his fat rolls. If you want to keep naked photos of him, fine.

              The guy blew out a shoe on a move, that’s how much force his 284-pound body exerts. He looks tentative on the right leg in this video, indicative of him feeling gimpy or unsure of the leg.

              The NBA has roles for all sorts of talents. He’s big and savvy, so that will always work. He sort of reminds me of Derrick Coleman with his soft body and touch with the basketball. He’d be dominant if he could take it to the hole with abandon. That’s probably not in the cards.

                  You have such photos? Did you procure them on one of your gay cruises to the Bahamas? I'll need some PM's directly.

                  Yes. :yum:

                  And comparing this fatty to Charles Barkley is laughable. Barkley was a superior athlete, one of the most underrated athletes of all time.

                    That's actually a good comparison. Chuckie was awesome. Zion is better.

                        He won't last long unless he gets serious about his weight.

                          His weight allows him to do his work successfully. Impossible to knock him off-balance.

                            Barkley with the 76ers played around 250. He was fat in college by his own admission. He lost all that weight thanks to Moses Malone. He got bigger in the latter part of his career.

                              This kid won't have the career Barkley had due to the type of surgery he had plus his genetics. He will have a much shorter career. And as Ox pointed out, to say that after one game is absurd. bFor the record, he is one of the heaviest players in the NBA and at only 6'6.
