Davis had this whole off season to make a great year for Orlando. The trainers have concluded that he is in vascular shape. So he must have done a lot of wind sprints. For the weight, he had this Summer to prove us, and well, he failed. Why would he succeed next year where he failed this year?

Davis is Davis.

I find assumption from OP about loosing weight to jump few inches higher hardly relevant.

IMHO, Glen strength lies in his weight and using it in positioning and to body bigger players in the post. When we played Celtics in playoffs, Big Baby demonstrated it perfectly against Dwight, even though D12 could probably outjump him by a foot.

What is important when it comes to weight, is that a player should be well conditioned to endure 40+ mins and not be a slug. I've seen much worse cases than BBD when it comes to that.

Who are you kidding... if Davis came to camp even heavier, then you would still say he's going to "prove ya'll wrong." :lol:

BBD IS going to prove ya'll wrong either way!!!

All fun aside, BBD has a huge matchup against Tim Duncan tonight. He needs to play his best game and not take risky shots because a crafty defensive Vet like Tim Duncan can shut him down.

Damn, what's the obsession of many of you with Big Baby weight?

because it's the last straw so to speak, it's the last explanation we can cling to as to why Baby isn't as good as we'd like him to be

if Kevin Love and Kendrick Perkins did it, then there's no reason to think Big Baby wouldn't do it.

If he's in training camp next year, that means he hasn't been traded
let's see to it, that this doesn't happen

I think if you put McGee back then, he would get those blocks just as easily as Russell did. Russell's athleticism was well ahead of the players of his time, and that's about it.

Someone thinks he'll be an allstar this season... if he came into shape next year, bbd might just be a superstar then.

What if Jameer and Big Baby both gained 150 lbs? Jameer at 350 and Glen at 450. Talk about selling tickets. I'd fly cross country to see that.

When measuring outlandish statements, the op and mine are equal.

Buy it, invest in it. That vid was just last year and Glen was playing at 317 pounds with us last year (quoted per a Magic coach).

EDIT: My bad, i thought it was last year because of the guy saying is that J-Rich with him....Either way...Glen is and has been 300 plus.
A smart coach once said, "Potential just means you're not good enough yet." Playing on potential is like living on air: It's essential, but if thats all you have, you're eventually going to starve.

BBD did slim down one year in Boston, I think it was his contract year, this vid might be from that season.

Davis build is the only reason he can play C and not be useless as an undersized PF.
