Default Sofoklis Schortsanitis "Big Sofo" Now 300 Pounds

The Greek national team played their first two exhibition games of the summer. Schortsanitis scored 15 points in the first game and 23 points in the second game.

He is now said to be by Greek national team trainers to be at 6-10 and 300 pounds in weight. He has lost another 50 pounds since earlier this summer when he was trying to play with the Clippers summer league team.

He is now 53 pounds LIGHTER than when he helped Greece beat Team USA and only 13 pounds heavier than when the Clippers drafted him. His body fat is said to be at 8%.

He doesn't even look like that player I saw at the Olympics.

Wow, thats a lot of weight lost. Would like to see him be an impact player for the Clips so them let go of Camby or Kaman for some more young talent. We'll see if this is legit.

Good maybe he'll actually get some playing time for Olympiacos.

It'll be hard to come by with Bourousis, Kleiza, and Vujcic in the front court.

He's better than Glyniadakis so that should get him 10 mins a game.

Thats a huge weight drop. These international athletes are heavily tested for banned substances right?

Glyniadakis has been far better than him for the last 3 years. Perhaps that will change but no way you can say "he's better than Glyniadakis" just like that.

He's been on a special diet and training program from a Swiss clinic. And yes they are tested, and unlike NBA athletes that includes all substances that the EU and FIBA bans, not just what the NBA selects.

Wow hadn't seen the weight loss in pictures like that. Thats a dramatic loss done the right way; gradually. I can respect that.

Being better than Sofo the last 3 years isn't saying much considering he couldn't give you more than 5 productive minutes at a time. Glyniadakis is extremely mediocre.

You know that Sofo playing to his ability at 300-320 lbs. is clearly a better player than Glyniadakis was or will ever be.


I was very impressed by the play of Kostas Papanikolaou today, this kid's gonna be a player.

Glyniadakis is the most underrated player in Europe. He's very, very good these days. This last season he was fantastic.

Supposedly Papanikoloau cannot be on the team though. FIBA rules prevent it. Anyway so far Greece has mainly just played their third string unit. We will see what Sofo does against real competition.
