Default STAT Just Showed Me That Athletes Adding Muscle Hurts Athleticism

It happened to Kobe, its happening to Wade right now, and with STAT, since he said he dropped the muscle he is exploding again.

I dont think yall realize how serious it actually is. A few years ago Kobe had put on a lot of muscle and he had a less athletic season than the prior year. Right now, Wade added a lot of muscle in the off season and he has not had any explosive dunks at all this year after coming off a year where he looked as explosive as ever.

Now look at STAT, he mentioned dropping off the muscle pre all star break and before his back injury I had started to notice some of his explosiveness coming back, last night showed me that his extra muscle was hurting his explosiveness. Since joining NY, he has had like a total of 5 explosive dunks period, last night he had probably his 2 best as a Kinck so far. Last season he had plenty of opportunities to explode and yam on someone, but he could not do it. Now that he is back to the size he was as a Sun, you can see the difference.

I hope Wade notices this and sheds some of that muscle he gained in the offseason, I know he is not on a decline as his explosiveness may show, its just too much muscle hurts athletes. Wade will realize this and come back next year back yamming on nyggas, hopefully.

yep, because strength isn't a part of athletism. Kobe when he added the muscle was a beast(dunking on Yao etc). It slowed him down but he was much more imposing physcially and still very explosive to the rim. It is a give and take.

The issue with Kobe was that it hurt his knees and his frame may not be able to support it.

When D-Wade first added the muscle he was looking like an athletic freak. This was directly after a knee surgery. It looked fishy to me tbh. So I won't comment much on that.

OP is dumb.

Look at Jordan before and after.
Look at LBJ before and after.

I can see that.

Imagine if Lebron and Dwight weren't so muscular. Their verticals are already so high.

Not gonna lie, Wade did bulk up pretty quick. Do they do HGH testing in the NBA?

Do you watch basketball hoe ass nygga. Bron is less explosive off the dribble and does not jump as high, just cause the nygga is still athletic does not mean it did not slow him down you fukk ass nygga. MJ was not nowhere near as explosive after 92, I guess you would not know that since you were a 3 year old bytch ass lil kid at the time. Get the fukk out my thread bytch boy, fukkin head would be knocked off commenting to a nygga like me like that in person, fukk nygga.

he went from being hurt and getting killed during the season. To rehabbing and adding a ton of muscle will be more explosive then every before? something fishy was going on. Grover isn't some magician.

yeah, I was kind of confused as to why amar'e decided to put on weight before this season. i was under the impression that he cut back on weight after his microfracture surgery because he was no longer capable of being explosive at 260+ lbs. i guess that's what's up. he gets off the ground way better at 240/245 than 260.

If you have natural athleticism then losing some of it and gaining muscles will make you so much better than having less muscle but more athleticism.
