Ok trolls, go back to peaking into Fultz twitter for conspiracy theories on his shoulder. He def looks bigger, and considering he was a toothpick coming into the league, it's good to see he will be able to bang with players at the 4 now.

Normally I would agree with the people that deem these type of threads useless, but considering how raw Isaac and Bamba were coming out and with both of them already having suffered season-ending injuries because of it this is something I think is pretty important to monitor. Isaac has without a doubt added size this summer and it should help him this upcoming season. He's obviously not Giannis size but its progress nonetheless.

235 is good size for many SF. 235 at 7'0 is not someone i would want banging against anyone.

if someone pushes and you can't push back.... your confidence wane unless you immediately compensate with another trait. Now that he can push back... i'm sure we will be seeing the best form of Isaac to date.

David Robinson's muscles had muscles. Guy was huge, he was one of most jacked nba players ever. In general he was almost perfect athlete. Huge 7'0, crazy mobility, ability to run the floor, shoot, he also had great tehnique and was apsolute monster.

There are Cs today who weight as much as him or more, or have muscles, but nobody looks like him

Image

Guy had quadra double in one game, during his prime he blocked more elite dunkers than probably anybody not named Mutombo ( and dunked some nasty stuff on Mutombo :lol: ) . He also made non other than Jordan ducking in transition in fear of poster :lol:

i think that was his rookie weight. a little searching pulled up people mentioning his weight in a Spurs program at 250 from the 97 season.

Corey Maggette was also HUGEEE.

From less known players, Joe Graham was monster, i saw somwhere on reddit that he could bench over 350 pounds :lol:

oh can't forget Ben Wallace, that dude was type of person you would run away from in moment you notice him :lol:

Yeah he just towered over most guys out there. When Middleton was guarding him, Isaac looked like a giant!

Middleton true size and weight are around 6'7 / 215 pounds.

NBA just really ,really LOVES to inflate weight and size of everybody, especially how they measure player with shoes, like they play in high heels , not bb shoes.

Robinson was an incredible specimen, athlete, player, human being...but, smart to cut his legs out of the shot. He was not bullying anybody in the post. He was jumping over, lateral movement, speed...Isaac is a good comparison (I hope) for body type/potential. Vuc would post Robinson if they met and bump him around. Different type of Center. I like Isaac quick and switchy, tip of the spear on the perimeter. A little more muscle is great but no need for bulk...Again, I love him, Robinson, Garnett style physique...but not the body to bang with Vuc, Gasol types.

ISaac should look at Siakam. Siakam has similar body style and plays fine.
