KP in particular. He's like the 7'3" Jamal Crawford for lifting weights but never changing appearance as a pro.
I know. That picture of Frank is actually kind of freaky. He literally flipped a switch and in two months he went boing!
While it still has to translate to his performance on the court, this should chasten some of the weirdos here who were making conclusive and definitive put-downs on the future of a 19 year old.
He looks almost beastly already and he's still growing so I think we have a physical specimen on our hands who is going to rag doll the league on defense. I'm not even worried about his offensive game coming along, because once he feels his growing strength on the court his confidence is going up and up. I expect Frank to start jamming in traffic this season. I think people who are looking for some slow and steady 4 year arc may be in for a shock. I feel he will make a pretty big leap forwards this year.
I mean geezus, look at those shoulders. He is a super wide body and he isn't even halfways to filling out his frame. He's going to have an elite wing span with legit power.
