To be blunt, this sounds like you are trying to be overly negative. Everyone, including Spellman himself, knows that he was way overweight last season. He weighed 254 at the draft combine and ballooned up to 293 6 months later - in the middle of an NBA season! He went to Hawks trainer (and former Dubs trainer) Chelsea Lane to ask for help and lost 20 pounds. Now with the Dubs, he is putting in extra workouts and is on a stringent nutritionist-crafted diet consisting of eggs and veggies for breakfast, salad for lunch, and fish with vegetables and a grain for dinner.
So the point of this thread is a) can he keep the weight off and b) if he does, can he be a steal for the Dubs? And your posting stuff like "he was heavy and slow last year". That's a given that everybody knows; it isn't relevant to the gist of the thread.
