I distinctly remember all the workout videos that he/his trainer/father put up on youtube before coming to VCU. You could see that he was a very hard worker....but physically he was a bit heavy and not well defined as far as muscle. I think it really slowed him down and decreased his finesse around the basket.....but he was a wide body and space eater around the basket (especially in HS). In fact, (perhaps I''m thinking of another player but...) if memory serves, I believe one of the knocks on MSS when he was initially be scouted by college coaches was that he was too big/heavy - around 290+ or so in his sophomore or junior year. But he shed about 40 lbs or something at the end of his junior year.
was all set to look for this picture of when he came aboard. thanks for posting. what a difference
