Bamba is quotes as his weight gain was "only" a 2.5% increase in body fat. This takes him to about 10%, based on increases from combine numbers.

It all depends on body composition, you can have 10% bodyfat and look like ****

If Bamba shows in this short stretch that he can man the middle full time moving forward, this offseason gets much more interesting.

I'm pretty skeptical of off-season gym stories, but Bamba looks like he legitimately added a decent amount of weight.

while the weight gain is nice, i hope his overall feel for the game has improved

Notes
-Bamba has been eating 5-6 meals a day and lifting weights daily since March.
-He officially weighed 252 on Sunday. He weighed 231 at the start of training camp in September.
-The Magic rented a U-Haul and delivered workout equipment (weights, bikes, etc) to all of their players, including Bamba, who didn't already have a home gym.
-Jonathan Isaac weighed 209 pounds during the Raptors series and weighed 227 when the following season started in October.

One of Mo's biggest problems is being pushed out of position. This should help. Hopefully it does't break his shot now.

He's always had definition in his arms. Even when he was at Texas. Interested to see if he's noticeably gained size in his lower body.

mo has potential man, it's a shame the season got cut short because he was really starting to make some very noticeable strides defensively. Offensively, pick and pop will always work for him but i see almost no post work from him and not enough rim running and the reason why is strength. He has to be able to bang bodies and fight for position and keep it, he can't be getting pushed off his spot by players like marcus smart. I just feel the post would be a damn near guaranteed bucket since any hook he throws up can't really be blocked.
