^^ true. And obviously his basketball skills were so great that they made up for the horrible shape that he was in. However in today's league of 2012 he'd quite honestly never make it. That late 90's early 00's era was really the last of the SKILL era's and now we're really deep into the era of athleticism.

Interesting! Did he have some weight problems? Or was this the result of laziness and not properly conditioning (like Derrick Coleman)?

He was prone to being fat. But I'm sure with the nutrition and personal training they have today, he would of been in a lot better shape than he was when he played.
