So no 1/2 measures and I doubt anyone is rounding down. But I’ll take it.

Boucher needs to keep growing that hair if he wants to gain weight.

He does look like Tashaun Prince back in the day in terms of his lankiness. Not sure if Boucher as the foot speed to be a SF though.

most shocking part is FVV at 6 feet tall. How am I supposed to keep calling him a midget when the dude is my height....FOH

So Lowry gained 9 lb. ****

Also props to Matt Thomas for being 7lb heavier. If he's putting on weight it's a good indicator of his off court work ethic and will to stick around in the league.

Lowry gained 9 lbs since the number was last updated so it could been a long time (not sure if all the way to 2006 when he was drafted).

EDIT: I think he was 175 lbs when he was drafted, so yeah 196lbs old weight must be a bit recent.

Boucher found a way to get skinnier.

Kyle and Marc got fat and need to work into shape, Boucher and McCaw need to hit the damn gym. How the hell can you be that tall and that skinny as a pro athlete.

Lowry got a little plump.

Matt Thomas the same weight as FVV but 5 inches taller.
Best games I have ever seen 1. Kobe dropping 81 2. Portland x Denver May 3, 2019

2 surprises to me are that boucher is actually 6'11 and fvv is 6. I always thought boucher was shorter and that his length made him look taller than he was. And there's no way fvv is 6 if Lowry is 6. Maybe it's the hair but Lowry always looks an inch taller than him when theyre side by side. Maybe fvv looks small because of his alligator arms as well. Also when was Kyle ever listed as 6'1?

with lowry + gasol 10 lbs heavier, our defense may not be great to start the season.

Less worried about Marc because he had a very busy summer - pretty sure he is in good shape after playing for Spain.

More worried about Lowry; he was injured all summer and he does have a tendency to put on bad weight during the offseason.

As has been pointed out, Marc played more than anyone on the team this Summer, he's probably in very good shape. You have to remember these are new weights compared to what the old listed ones were, which may have been measured a while ago. For all we know, Marc weighs the same now as he did during the Finals.

Crazy that Stanley Johnson is the heaviest player on the team not named Gasol.

I am in the same boat. He has talent, but his IQ looks below average

BOUCHER WILL NEVER GET BIGGER. That is his frame/size for the rest of his career. The player you want him to be isin't going to happen but that doesn't mean he can't be effective.

Boucher is a 3pt shooter/shot blocker. He's not a positional rebounder but he can use his length to get boards. He's the fastest runner on the team for his size and he looks to run every play. He'll most likely never be a starter in this league and won't win every match up but he brings energy and scoring which is exactly what you want off the bench.

When we look at bench players, you will rarely find all around players unless they are young and developing. Every bench player has disadvantages. Its the coaches job to have them excel with their advantages.

Keon Clark was a druggy but he had the same frame as Boucher in a league that use to be all about size. If Keon Clark played in this era, he'd be much more successful. No reason why Boucher can't be successful now. Just needs the playing time to get comfortable.


Well I hope he'll be successful for this team but honestly, I'm not high on him at all. I hope he proves me wrong.

I agree. He is a 3/4

Guy is 26 years old - chances of him growing an significant amount of muscle weight at this point is pretty slim (like him).

Still think he is better used as a forward than a C; his weight will matter less.

Boucher is miscast if you look at him as a PF or C. His game and body shape makes him more of a SF. His body type reminds me of KD. He has a bit of handle and has outside shooting...play him at the 3/4.

He's a tank. There's no reason he shouldn't be Ron Artest (without the crazy), except he just doesn't seem to want it badly enough.

Well . . . that was material . . . I'd expect more variation based on what they ate for breakfast and the last time they got a haircut.

People...guys didn't "gain" weight over the summer. Some of those player weights are from their draft. They don't update those regularly, if at all, because there is no reason to. So Kyle didn't "gain" 9 pounds, Marc didn't "gain" 10 pounds. Kyle's original weight could be his draft weight for all we know!
