Watch him develop his game? HE'S 12 YEARS OLD!!! You shouldn't even know his name. Of course he's got weaknesses, he's a kid! He doesn't have to play basketball if he doesn't want to. Why do people think they have the right to follow a 12 year old's life? Let him be a kid.all we can do at this point is watch him develop his game, i bet he does have some weaknesses, he has the size and strength already now he has to polish his game into something unique and great.
Let him live his life.''I wish sometimes people would see my personality before they see anything,'' he said. ''I think about that when someone meets me for the first time, and all they see is how big I am. I want them to think I'm a nice person first.''
Maybe they do...HKF said:Someone needs to put that kid on a diet program and have him working out (just cardio, no real weights). 6'11 290 is really big for a kid 14 years of age.
He actually lost 10 pounds since he was 12. And he is 86% muscle.HKF said:Someone needs to put that kid on a diet program and have him working out (just cardio, no real weights). 6'11 290 is really big for a kid 14 years of age.
I'm not talking muscle, I'm talking weight. That's a lot of weight to carry on your body at that age, regardless of whether or not he's 86% muscle. Look at Shaq. He has a low body fat, but he has a lot of weight, that has done significant damage to his body and will basically leave him a crippled old giant. Don't want to see this kid turn out like that.BrettNYK said:He actually lost 10 pounds since he was 12. And he is 86% muscle.
Did you even read what I said?Greater Levitator said:Oh yeah...
5 kilos is an improvement...
I could lose 5 kilos in 3 days.
That is a huge loss of weight. If he maintained his proportions he'd be more like 330 by now instead of 295.The Truth said:Did you even read what I said?
Sure, he only lost 10 pounds, but he grew 5 inches at the same time!
mysterio said:He's certainly matured.
Maybe he's a really early bloomer like Tyson Chandler and he's done growing.
I'll go on a limb and say he'll grow maybe an inch. Once you get a goatee going, you're pretty much as tall as you'll be.
