Default Rudy Gay gains 20 pounds of muscle

Rudy Gay has added nearly 20 pounds of muscle this summer in an attempt to bulk up for next season.
Gay boasts that he's topping off at 241 pounds which now gives him the size to challenge people like LeBron James (250 pounds) and Carmelo Anthony (230 pounds) on the defensive end and will help him become more of an interior threat.

20lbs of weight, not 20lbs of muscle. Dude would look f*cking monsterous with an extra 20lbs of muscle on him.

I can understand where he's coming from. He wants Rudy to improve, but at the same time, be less selfish with the ball than he is already. Same thing for O.J.

I just want to see Rudy improve in such areas as passing, defense and rebounding. He can already score and with Randolph now on the team, Rudy does not need to be scoring every other point. He should lookc to expand his game and improve his areas of weakness. If he does that, he will have a great year.

Rudy has proved nothing yet. In 3 years he has not made his team any better. People in this forum used to say Pau was weak and needed to go because this was Gay's team now.Indeed a Gay team it has become! With Pau the grizzs went from crap to playoffs in the toughest ever conference. With Gay they have gone back to crap.It's players like him with their selfish play that spoil the game.

From what I can remember, most people here did not want Pau to go and for this to become Gay's team. I for one was completely against making this team Rudy's.

Could you refrain from making slanderous comments. You making a witty name refrence about the grizzlies team is fine. But do so with class. I would like you to not make comments about sexuality or race while posting on this forum. If you do it again I will have you banned from the grizzlies forum. Thank you.

From a day ago:

Ronald Tillery of the Memphis Commercial Appeal reports: Rudy Gay carries, by his estimation, about 15 pounds of added muscle. He’ll tell you his level of focus is immeasurable behind a strong showing during USA Basketball’s July minicamp. His desire to elevate the Grizzlies is off the charts with training camp less than a month away and three consecutive losing seasons in the rearview mirror. “I want to be an All-Star. Everything I do now is trying to help me get to that point,” Gay said. “If I’m at the top of my game and recognized as an All-Star, it’ll mean we’re winning.”
