Personally, I don't buy into the line that we gotta put 20 pounds on every kid that comes here from high school. There are plenty of awesome hoopers out there that are bean poles. Too much muscle can make you tight and eff up your jump shot. Too much bulk can slow one down, affect quickness and cause one to tire easily. Do they need to work out? Absolutely. Do they need to bulk up? Maybe, maybe not. Depends on the role the player plays. A shooter, slasher, scorer off the wing doesn't need to be bulky IMHO.
Petway or Pettaway, whatever his name was back in the day. I always thought that was his biggest issue, mussel bound.
