In a different body so far this season, unfortunately.

He's such a disaster on defense. Screws up the entire defensive rotation. I root for Jokic for the most part but any other player would get roasted so hard if they were so horrible, especially due to being completely out of shape.

This forum's obsession with Jokic's weight is borderline perverse.

I find it ridiculous the people here defending Jokic's weight as not his fault. There are no calories in fresh air. He is putting on weight from a poor diet, there is no argument against that. He is lacking discipline, and it is showing in his performance so far this season.

He was measured at 285 at the beginning of this season, which is actually less than in playoffs when (according to himself) he was 292 and played out of his mind. I don't know what's the Nuggets problem so far this season, but some are desperate to be right I guess. I hope that being 76ers fan is (again) just a strange coincidence. :P

Why would it make a difference being a Sixers fan?

He is one of my favorite players in the league, but this is just unacceptable. Tonight is the first time I've really gotten to watch him play for a full game and he is visibly gassed on the court and is clearly playing overweight. He's settled for about 3 contested threes tonight because he is so gassed from playing defense. He has to catch his breath at the free-throw line and after every possession.

No clue how he came into the season like this.

Nah, I'm a big fan of his and he's visibly worse this season as a result of the poor conditioning, so I want to see him get his **** together.

I bet somewhere is a fanboy, who thinks this is what peak performance looks like when he sees Jokic playing right now

Did he bulk up with the plan to cut down afterwards?

yeh u would think playing that much basketball and sweating that much, would make it impossible to be fat

not being muscular i understand, but fat? he must be eating very well


He must be eat massive amounts of sugar and other carbs to be chubby despite the intense exercise of the NBA grind. His diet has to be trash.

I do not know. Do you? I do know that most fat people I know who try to reduce weight struggle a lot with it. Considering that the relapse rate is frighteningly high, the notion that all you have to do is "just do not eat bad foodz" is about as useful as telling a junkie to just do not do drugs. In other words it is a completely and utterly empty and hollow advice lacking any insight into the actual issue.

lol lazy compared to whom? The unemployment rate in the US is just 3.6 percent. The unemployment rate in Europe is 6.8 percent.

Maybe you are talking about North Americans? The unemployment rate in Canada is 5.7 percent. That would fit your narrative better. Although it's still lower than in Europe.

You're right about Americans having bad eating habits but calling Americans "lazy" doesnt make much sense.


Wait, what? Do you seriously believe that employment and unemployment rate have anything to do with laziness? :crazy:

The-Power wrote:Are you seriously comparing Jokic and his incentives (and opportunities) to stay in great shape to average people and their incentives (and opportunities)? Come on. Next you're telling me basketball players can't be expected to practice and play basketball every day because the average person doesn't play basketball every day either. And maybe, just maybe you noticed that the ‘obesity pandemic’ is not really much of an issue in the NBA. I wonder if there's any reason for that...


Maybe read the post I was originally reacting to? The one who claims that it is all 100% on you? :roll:


Who said don't eat bad food? I said put the fork down. You can go a month without eating. I can assure you, your weight will drop. It is THAT simple. If someone consumes less calories than they burn, they'll drop weight. If people struggle to keep weight off, it's for one SIMPLE reason. They chose to eat more than they burn. Every time you eat, it's a choice. There's a difference in "want" and "choice". If I want abs (who doesn't?) but choose to eat a burrito....well I chose to be fat.


The less you eat, the more your body produces fat. It’s a defense mechanism that your body goes into when food intake is irregular.

That being said, if all the running that occurs in the NBA isn’t helping, then Jokic’s diet is obviously to blame for his extra pounds.

I don't think your are explaining this properly.

No two ways about it. He's not an average Joe. The guy is paid 10s of millions and has the best ecosystem to stay in shape. He doesn't and his lack of conditioning and bulk is hindering his team. In short = he is a fat lazy **** who needs to be held accountable and not coddled.

I'm not concern about Jokic.
He wants to be the very best - like no one ever was.
