I don’t remember this happening with the previous leadership. Players are arriving to camp today and getting weighed in. That definitely happened, but if the players are over their target weight, it is costing them $520 per pound… per day.

That can turn out to be a butt-ton if a player comes in after having an offseason full of In N Out. How would Shawn Kemp have felt if this happened back in the day (for all the NBA fans).

I haven’t heard word of any players coming in over their target weight yet, but I will sure to keep the ear out. I am sure there was a few of them on hunger strikes before coming into camp. Can’t resist those dang Animal Fries!
