Very disappointed that Chris Boucher is still 200 lbs. Not gonna cut if for a PF/C. That's a SG weight.


Boucher NEEDS to get bigger. There's a reason his nickname is 'Slim Duck' and I don't think it has to do with anything good. lol If he can utilize his skills at a heavier weight, he'll be a bit better as a player, especially when rebounding and scoring in the paint.



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.


even before your post i went looking for a pic of Keon Clark because I was thinking the same as you. But then you see the pics and Keon he was a beanpole but he was also ripped. If Boucher could look like this he'd be fine but I don't think he does.

Gasol @ 7’1. I thought he was 7”. that inch just sounds like a big difference

McCaw and Boucher need to spend some time with me. I have an excellent bulking regimen.

Keon was one of my favorite players during that era. But even Keon was listed at 220 lbs at 6-11. I don't know how Chris Boucher being 6-11 is only 200 lbs. I think you're right, the only difference between Keon and Boucher is that Keon had more muscle in the upper body and arms.

McCaw and Boucher should eat what Lowry is eating (before Lowry eats them).

I'm with this type of thinking. Embrace the player you are, embrace your strenghts, work on those.

Apparently he has 4 lbs on Giannis (6'9" and 196 lbs from the revised measurements).

These measurements are garbage. Depending on the time of day that you measure a guy the height could be off by an inch and the weight by 5 lbs (or possibly more for both).

The Bucks haven't released their updated measurements yet (this is a new requirement by the NBA). And even if they have, doesn't mean the website would update (that all depends how lazy or not is the team web guy). 6'9 and 196 is more like his draft height and weight. We all know that publicly the team said Giannis grew to 6-11 by 2016. I'm guessing without shoes, he's 6-11 and 230-40 now.

At 26 years old and 6-11, Boucher should be a skinny 220, but he's way lower than that.

Keon Clark was "wirey" but still strong. Similar to how a young Kevin Garnett was.

Keon had zero issues going into the paint and dunking on players bigger than him.

Boucher is just frail.
