Do you believe Thon Maker and his people have done as much as the Freak, LeBron and those elite NBA athletes who don't have issues with strength? I'm not asking Thon to be Freak or LeBron, only to commit to maximizing his physical gifts. I don't believe he's done that. If you think he has, cool, so be it.
The point is do more.
My point is that its insulting to Thon, the Bucks, the Pistons, and every strength and conditioning coach/nutritionist that’s ever worked with him to blatantly ASSUME he/they’ve not done enough...you have no idea if it’s even physically possible for Thon and his camp to “do more” - maybe the only way to “do more” is to scientifically alter the genetic makeup of his DNA?
you’re not knowledgeable about Thon’s workout/diet habits...and you clearly know nothing about the science behind genetics and/or kinesiology...hell - we may not even know Thons real age - but you feel you’ve made a valid point because of an assumption that you have - which is grounded in pure ignorance in regard to the totality of the situation?
I wonder what Thon would say if you gave him such wonderful advice...he’s probably never even considered the notion of adding more weight - he’d surely thank you for such novel insights into his health and work ethic!
Lol petty or not - you know what they say when you make assumptions...
