Default Sherron Collins overweight...again.

http://www.kansascity.com/sports/story/1283020.html

Quote:
Last summer, Kansas point guard Sherron Collins checked in at 220 pounds in August before the Jayhawks’ exhibition tour of Canada and was publicly chastised by KU coach Bill Self for being out of shape.

This summer, Collins is putting on weight at a more alarming pace — Self said he is around 229 now — but Self is reserving judgment with months to go before KU’s annual boot camp workouts.

“He’s heavy right now, 20, 30 pounds overweight,” Self said. “He’s got some time to get some of it down. It’s going to be a very tough patch for him to get where he needs to be.”

Collins said last season that he was playing around 205 pounds. After three years of watching Collins battle his weight at Kansas, Self said he doesn’t see the issue going away for Collins as his career continues.

“He’s going to be a guy that’s always going to have to watch his conditioning, there’s no doubt about that,” Self said.

What is it with this kid? I remember watching Temple/Kansas early last year and he was so out of shape he was calling for Self to yank him out of the game within the first 5 minutes. He's gotta stay in shape if he ever wants to be in the league.

It's probably not an issue for Kansas heading into next year. He got himself into decent enough shape for the '08-'09 season and I don't doubt he can do it again. He has almost four months to lose 25 pounds. It's selfish and lazy to get yourself into that problem in the first place, but it's a fixable problem.

But like you said, it might be something that costs himself an NBA career if he doesn't get it together. A lot of guys do get their act together a lot better after leaving college. Deron Williams played most of his college career at close to 220 pounds before getting down to- and staying at- 202 as a pro. Then again, Deron is four inches taller and Sherron Collins is no Deron Williams.

I think just the fact that he's struggled with his weight so much, fluctuating up and down the last four years, might have already done permanent damage to his NBA stock. Not insurmountable, but the damage may already be done. Even if he gets back into shape, he's done it before, so just as you wouldn't declare a drug addict who's been in rehab five times clean because he's been sober for four months, I don't know if you can ever declare Collins over his weight problems until he gets in the league and stays in shape.

Does this dude not do anything at all during the summer or what? How the heck can a PG just gain 30 pounds like that?..I could imagine someone like Pittman from UT or a big body like Harongody (sp) blowing up.. but a PG? Crazy.

Yikes! That's a lot of weight for a guy like him. I'm 6'2" 210 and I thought I was fat.
