This just tells me you know noting about lifting weights or maybe even playing basketball. Do you seriously believe that when someone's playing ball their muscles swell up like when lifting weights? Or that when someone's hooping their fat content goes down so that they look more muscular while they are playing than they are in reality? Please tell me you don't really believe that, because that's completely untrue.

Zion's not fat, sorry. As someone else said, doesn't mean he's as cut as a bodybuilder with a six pack, but he's clearly got far more muscle than fat. Doesn't mean he still shouldn't lose weight to save his knees and joints, but it's not like he's got 30 pounds of excess fat to lose. Far from it.

No one said heís fat. What was said that he has fat. Heís not all muscle. He added weight and the comment was how do you know itís not fat? That doesnít imply he is fat. It implies that the weight he added could be fat. What strict weight program is he on? Iíve yet to hear anything about that. But he has had injuries where he sat.

Your comment strongly implied that you thought he looked more muscular just because he was playing ball. The guy's been shown working out with Duke's team, and honestly his arms look bigger now than they did even a year ago. Muscle is heavier than fat. Nothing I've seen indicates he's put on fat rather than simply more muscle. Now whether that's a good thing or not remains to be seen. It's one thing to be carrying that weight around on 18 year old knees, but let's see its effect even 5 years from now.

He's a mindblowing athlete, and I think Duke should get him to slim down. 285, even if it's all muscle is too much on a 6'7 frame. He needs to get really get down to 260 or so, which would be around LeBron's weight.

People need to chill on his weight.

He will slim down when the time is right.

He better have an outside game and decent ballhandling ability. If not, he will have a tough transition to the NBA.

His ball handling is good. Outside game needs work.
