He needs more strength but like Garnett, Siakam & Durant done it.
If you want him to be a strong, athletic C, he was drafted way too high. You can draft those types every year late in the 1st. round or 2nd round.
Mo needs mass because he is a C only. He doesnt have the speed to defend on the perimeter.

Siakam is 20 pounds heavier than Isaac. Garnet played 20-30 lbs heavier than ISaac. Durant is 20-30 lbs heavier than Isaac.


1. I'm pretty sure you know what i wanna say. :wink: All are pretty skinny for there height. Isaac got the same bodytype.
2. Isaac said he is 235 now. Durant is 240, Siakam is 230. Garnett weighed more in his later years, but unlike Isaac, he was playing much more in the post, on defense & offense.

yes, he doesnt need to be musclebound. I think AG put on too much muscle and its messing with him. But the reason people wand Isaac to put on mass is because he needed it, if not for the strength than just to protect himself. So yes, if he is 235 now, that is fine. We dont need nor want him to be 270

Doesn't matter, Isaac put in a ton more cardio in the last 8 months than Mo. Bamba was barely moving for a while and just eating and maybe doing upper body workouts.
