All I'm saying is that I hope it doesn't become a genetic issue - i.e, some weight issue that is out of his control. I just think from a genetic standpoint he may possibly be susceptible to excessive weight gain in his career.
Maybe it won't be an issue or maybe it will. His father battled with it his entire career - I'm sure Popeye didn't choose being fat over being paid millions in the NBA. It just gives me a little bit of reservation about drafting the kid.
Does that happen? Did that really happen with his dad, or did he just get lazy? I'm asking because I don't know much about him.
How can you be a dedicated professional athlete and then just get fat? Unless he had some kind of thyroid problem, or he got pregnant.
