View Full Version : Breaking News: Cousins says he gained weight
12-10-2011, 05:50 PM
In an interview after training camp he said he ate all types of fried food, fried chicken, pizza, gummy warms, etc. I really hope he was just kidding here. He said he gained 30-40 pounds. He said he weights 340.
To me this is just shocking...I hope it doesn't affect his game-play this season.:pray:

nah...Westpahal was on the radio and said Cousins is in better shape already than the end of last year
but none of them are in game shape, of course

I take the same approach with weight changes, whether positive or negative.
There are 3 training camp stories I see every year. Every team prints out the same story in a press release.
1. Player A has lost 20 pounds! He is now faster than a cheetah!
2. Player B has gained 20 pounds! Look how tough he is now.
3. Player C is shooting 68% on practice 3-point shots! He will burn the nets down!
With respect to # 1 and 2, even those positive weight changes don't affect how the players play the game.
With respect to # 3, that's why it's practice. It rarely translates once the regular season starts, whether it's an All-Star that has allegedly improved his 3-point %, or a promising bench player.
So, regardless of Cousins diet, it doesn't change how he plays. He will still play physical and be able to make his moves. Also, since he's a big man, he doesn't need as much lateral quickness on defense as a guard would.
The only area this may affect him is conditioning, but I still think he'll be ok once the regular season starts. As I said, I believe more in skill, not weight changes (whether good or bad).
lol, he looks WAY leaner this year - spent his offseason training like a mad man in Washington DC and playing in rec leagues. Goofy Cousins.

He dropped 10 pounds. He will dominate in the paint this year, and he will be the 2nd best player on the team. (YES I expect great things from Tyreke to)
He will be an All Star in Year 3

He wants Jimmer to move in with him LOL
