    I sized the images so that everything matches up. The jersey numbers, jersey letters, facial features, all match up identically between each picture. So it should give an accurate comparison:

    Looks like he put in some work for sure.

    Guys... it's the new jersey cut. I'm sure he lifted, so he must of gained some mass, but it's not that significant based on these pictures.

    Was hoping he would bulk up somewhat this off season, his upper body is significantly upgraded. Cannot wait to see him in action.

    If he kept the best of what he had, he will be a force this year.

    He won't be a beast but he will be a force and not be pushed around near as much.

    He should fap with his left arm every once in a while too.

    On the video he said he gained 15 pounds, that will only help him this season. He will not be pushed around like this past season. He should be able to hold his ground.

    It's not just the jersey cut, he definitely increased his weight(muscle and fat), you can see it in his face.

    Tbh, I do not see a significant difference in muscle gain. What I noticed is that he has trimmed the fat out of his body. In other words, he looks more fit.

    I put the old jersey cut on this year's photo. He still looks to have put on some mass.

    A little, but cutting his hair helps make his face look bigger, too. Yes, i'm sure he gained weight, our trainers would be horrible, if they couldn't accomplish that over a summer. I just don't think it's that significant, at least not from these pictures. It takes time anyway, not hating on him. It's a little harder to lift, when you're all limbs. Hopefully he gained weight in his lower half too. He just needs to keep packing it on for another year or two.

    I can, but it doesn't do justice. When I lower and raise the opacity so that you can see the transition, you can really see the difference. It's hard to tell what you're looking at with a still image.

    I don't think I see any difference. TBH I didn't even think he needed to add weight.

    He definitely looks bigger. More square in the chest. I believe what I've heard.

    Because a fraile 200 lbs big man can last playing in the nba without adding weight. this should be obvious.
