Levert looks like he skipped leg day though. Still, can't believe the transformation, even from last year, let alone his freshmen year.

We  call those guys at the gym "EDUBS".  

"Hey look EDUBS is here!"


Reserved only for those guys with clownishly small calves relative to their massive arms.  I wouldn't characterize Caris as quite EDUBS just yet as I still see a decent arm/calf ratio.

All you have to do is get really fat.  Then you have to stay fat for a long time, maybe a few years.  Your calves will grow to support the weight they have to lug around with them all the time.  Think about it, have you ever seen a fat guy with small calves?  No.  You haven't.  Its impossible.

How do I know this?  Becuase I've been fat since the sixth grade.  I'm currently a 22 year old gentlemen with massive calves who is trying to lose weight.

I think he compares very favorably to the #1 pick in the draft Wiggins. Even his physique. The ability to defend 3 or 4 different positions. Good ball handling skills. Can create own shot. LaVert might even be a better shooter right now. This seems to be the type of player the NBA is craving right now.

Book this darker- only Caris will leave of those 3. If Walton's game improves so much that he leaves, well that'll be similar to where Trey took us in his Soph season. i. e. Awe-sooome baby!
Irvin has shown no game so far, nuthin but a shooter- not even close to GRIII, and his draft stock wasn't even lukewarm... on what basis would anyone suggest he's jumping to NBA?

Zak looks way bigger in the arms and shoulders. Caris and DW look bigger and more defined as well. Not sure all three are in the NBA next but if they it Will be another great season. Izzo and the Sparty faithful will implode.

Not only this, but considering that Caris is coming off of foot surgery that took place in the middle of May, as I recall, he seems like he has still managed to grow noticeably, so I would assume that the healing process has gone quite well for him. It's just nice to see players putting in this extra time so they can be that much more effective in the coming season - and these three were pretty damn effective as it was.

I remember LeVert's freshmen year when he was basically a stick with arms and legs. Look at him now.

Hopefully Donnal has put on some good weight too. We need him fighting like hell for rebounds this year.
