"What's the skinny on Skita? He's not so skinny any more. Nikoloz Tskitishvili has transformed himself from 7-foot, 214-pound stick figure into a 243-pound force, the Rocky Mountain News reports. Relentless weight training and a 4,000-calorie-a-day diet helped give the second-year player from the Republic of Georgia more heft. "There's that old expression that we had to put a life preserver around him so he wouldn't go down the drain in the shower," coach Jeff Bzdelik told the Rocky Mountain News. "Now we don't have to do that. He's built up his body to the point now where he feels good about himself." The Nuggets hope Skita will attack the rim more often, resulting in easier buckets and more rebounds and free-throw chances. "


Wow, that's a huge weight increase. Dirk's at 245 I believe. That ought to help Skita out.

I heard he went on a weight gain/muscle gain diet. I know I read that somewhere. I read a lot of NBA columns from all over, but if I find it I will post a link.

Well he certainly needed it, that guy was way to skinny. 30 pounds in the off season is very impressive, of course exagerration tends too happen in these type of articles. Regardless it sounds like a pretty significant improvement. Doc would be proud.

4000 calories ain't that much considering he was already weighing 214 lbs and going through a heavy aerobic/anaerobic training

4000 calories is about 2 bites for Shaq.

Wasn't Bradley on a 10k calorie diet while in Philly? I'm on a 3500-4000 calorie diet all the time. It really doesn't seem like that many calories for a professional athlete that's putting in alot of work..especially when he was already rail thin... But, apparently it worked.



and thanks for the one liner, LRB. You always overwhelm us with your 'contributions'.

Damn Murph, cant we atleast mix humor with sports talk? LRB is known for his one liners but he also has alot to say about sports as well.

Hopefully we'll get a good look at Niko tonight on TNT vs. the Rockets.
He's a very intriguing player, I'm not sure if he's got the low post game to be a true 4, it's most likely he'll be more of a 3 until he can aquire a post game.
