Exclamation Zion Williamson is clinically obese, with more that 3x higher odds of meniscus injury

Most most recent height according to the NBA is 6-6 and his last weigh in was 284lbs

According to those figures his BMI is 32.8, which is clinically obese. 18-25 is considered normal. According to this study he is at at least 3 times greater risk of Meniscus injury due to being so overweight:

Hopefully nothing will happen to his meniscus. He's still healthy right?

"Clinically." That just measures body mass index (weight divided by height), not body composition (fat). Technically Lebron James is close to being clinically obese, and he is obviously not fat. Williamson is nowhere near true obesity. But he may be too heavy for his knees to support the force of his landings, the power of his explosions and just quick movements in general. I do agree that he should lose some weight to reducw stress on the joints, we've seen several great athletes get hurt due to their own explosiveness that aren't nearly as big as he is.

I know it mostly isn't fat, or isn't an unreasonable amount of fat at least

But weight crushing down on joints is weight crushing down on joints - the MCL data should be a real concern moving forward, dunno how he can lose weight if a lot of it isn't fat but he should try

Him being knock kneed is gonna doom him.Crazy this has never been an issue before....He waddles when he walks

zion on the left, while lebron being bow-legged on the right.LeBron will literally never have knee problems because of the way he is built( dont forget that kickstand aka 3rd leg he also has for balance)





the only hope for you lehaters is an achillies tear, cause nothing else will stop the Le17thTrain....he's built genetically superior to others in every way possible.

Most people who lift weights frequently are going to be above their suggested BMI, but 32.8 is pretty high though - I'm worried, but trying to capitalize on it, Ja Morant might be a good bet for ROY at current odds.

BMI is a horrible number to determine if someone is overweight or not or obese or not because it doesn't factor in muscle mass at all.

physics is a bitch. how the heck is this dude going to survive multiple 80 game schedules and then playoffs and then playing against dudes bigger than him?

He looked great in the preseason but he was noticeably limping.

If he can stay healthy it would be great but thats gonna be a tough deal

You think that fotball players get injured less than basketball players? If he was a lineman he'd be 40-60 pounds heavier and have dudes falling down around his knees all game long.

Also he wouldn't be as famous or wealthy. No lineman in NFL history is as famous as he is right now.

Makes you realize what an absolute genetic freak Shaq was. Shaq never had on major injury in his career. His knees never got ****ed up even at his fat ass playing weight.

hes got the height of a left tackle... the problem isnt people hitting his legs, its they aint meant for constant jumping and falling. Especially with all that top heavy weight.
