    That sucks. It will take about 35-36 games before he’s at 0.

    Unless hes at Landry’s all Summer so he can gain an extra 300-350 pounds before the season starts.

    Chuck Norris once had a testicle removed and lost 7 pounds.

    Curry once injured his knee, slipping on DMo's booty sweat.

    The NBA is not ready for Banchero's whole body sweat.

    Thank you for restoring my faith that this was in fact nothing more than a cleverly disguised DMo thread.

    This is actually amazing, Paolo can spend the first half of each game overpowering dudes, and then the 4th quarter comes and he's faster and jumps higher than anyone.

    once he hits negative weight we can use various sleeves and wristbands to have him float above the basket.

    The jokes are good (seriously!) but if he is working that hard it does lead some credence to the theory that he is capable of playing defense but saves his energy on that end given his high offensive workload. The question is whether he can build up more stamina and/or benefit from a secondary offensive role.

    Dude is 6'10"

    He needs to slim down, his height is more of a feature than his weight, he's not a bang down low big, so he really should be trying to get slimmer and faster.

    It's not necessarily he's working that hard. As has been reported before, this is actually a sweating "disease" I guess. lol. Maybe it's what Moses Malone had. They said it may lead to the cramping issues he's had in the past and had him drinking special fluids during the game to help alleviate the cramping.

    All players lose weight after games. Banchero loses a pound or 2 more than them… who cares.

    [​IMG]

    MEMPHIS, TN—Allowing his competitive spirit to give way to revulsion, local 27-year-old Philip Rayburn reported Thursday that a fellow pickup basketball player was too sweaty to guard. “I know I need to stay on him when he starts trying to back me down in the post, but I really don’t want to touch his sopping wet back,” said Rayburn, who on no less than six occasions passively gave up the lane rather than risk banging into the sweat-drenched man barreling toward him. “I don’t even like boxing him out on rebounds because he just drips down on top of me. Christ, I can’t even hand check him without getting wet.” At press time, the man had reportedly just returned from a water break dripping from the mouth with a combination of drool, sweat, and Gatorade.
