First of all, Danny did a great job with this year's draft. JaJuan Johnson and E'Twaun Moore are wonderful players and both have an enormous amount of potential to be key contributers even as early as next year, having played 4 years in college, not to mention together at Purdue. They're coming to Boston with chemistry and will be able to support each other and learn from the veteran. I can definately see the two of them taking the advice from Paul, KG and Ray seriously and growing in to All Stars.
Now, I'm tired of hearing everyone and I mean everyone say that players need to "BULK UP" to be able to play in the NBA. KG was skinnier that Johnson and has been a dominant Power Forward throughout his career and he didn't need to "BULK UP". KG got stronger but he didn't put on the excess fat that everyone wants. Last time I checked, Dirk Nowitski isn't such a shabby player and he hasn't needed to "BULK UP" (get fat) in order to play in the NBA.
Think about it, Yao Ming was extremely dominant when he came into the league, then all of the experts pushed him to "BULK UP" and he did. Well, that extra weight ended his career. Another example??? Does Shawn Kemp ring a bell?? He was an All Star Power Forward, but again everyone felt that he should "BULK UP". Well he did, and his career ended in ugly fashion.
Need I say more? Who's going to push him around? Bosh? Boozer? Anyone that insists that a JaJuan Johnson needs to "BULK UP" is ignorant to the game of basketball and should follow Sumo Wrestling instead.
Here are the benefits of remaining slim
"BULK UP" = Bad Knees, Bad Back, Bad Ankles and Early Retirement.
