I don't think this is that

I don't think this is that big of a deal, but it may cause some teams to become reluctant. Bennett was never the leanest guy either and his work ethic is questionable.

Interesting situation, to say the least.

Report

Chad Ford was really down playing the weight gain as well. Everyone is in damage control until the draft is over.

Well he looked pretty chubby during the season, so I guess he's around 6'7-265? Everyone is slipping, good for my man Steven Adams haha

Can we just skip this draft

Can we just skip this draft and transfer this class into next years draft or something? This draft is starting to make the 2000 class look great and none of the guys have even PLAYED yet.

You don't know the outcome of

You don't know the outcome of this draft. Wait 4-5 years until you compare this draft class to 2000.

He had surgery on his

He had surgery on his *shoulder*, not his knees or back.

This is not an excuse for gaining 18 lbs.

I agree. A shoulder injury

I agree. A shoulder injury is no excuse to not work out.
Looking at his body type its easy to see him having the natural proclivity to gaining weight if he's not on top of his game.
Combine that with his tendency to get injured and you could get a fat ass in the making.
Oh and he also has asthma. So factor that into the equation.

hmm i feel like bazz was in a

hmm i feel like bazz was in a similar situation and now it looks as if he has boucned back a little. Not saying bazz is what everyone expected but he brought the weight down to a respectful number...I believe Bennett will do the same,,besides the man is a workhorse..as soon as he is better he will be back in shape in a short period of time

Wont take long to get rid of 18. SUMMER L,TRAINING CAMP

Kid wants his money. He will work hard after he is drafted. He worked hard already wich is why he is a lottery pick. Bennett if he stays healthy is going to be very good. Teams want him to fall.

Noel said he's up to around 216

Noel said he's up to around 216 and claims that it's "good weight" in addition Cav doctors say his knee is "perfect" which caught me a little off-guard considering how grotesque his knee looked.

The look of Noel's knee

The look of Noel's knee scared me, but I read that Dr. James Andrews performed his surgery.

Dr. James Andrews is THE BEST when it comes to reconstructive knee surgery, so I feel a lot better about Noel's situation. At least about how the surgery was done, methods that were taken, etc, etc.

Guys will do anything to not play for the BobCats

I think a lot of this stuff is posturing, he does seem to be a little naturally pudgy though so this is a big deal. Why would he even let somebody weigh him if he he gained 18 pounds? He can't fall that far though because everyone has limitations in this draft.

So if he lost 18 pounds,

So if he lost 18 pounds, would his stock have gone up?

Teams have firm medical background checks at this point, they should know all risks by now.
