Default Eric Smith: Bargs IS Bigger

Just some news from Eric yesterday including him sizing up Andrea.

If I had to guess, Id say hes put on at least 10 if not 15 pounds. Hes noticeably bigger and while he was wearing a long-sleeved t-shirt he appeared to be thicker in the shoulders and arms.


I chatted with Roko Ukic for 5-10 minutes while we were waiting in line for dinner and he was telling me that he and his wife are loving Toronto so far. Theyre getting used to the city and enjoying their new home. He also dropped some news that I didnt know: hes the proud father of an 11-month-old baby girl. Congrats Roko!


Jermaine ONeal was at the tournament as well though he wasnt golfing. But the big man spent some time glad-handing fans and chatting with folks. He looks cut. And he spent a bulk of his time hanging out with Chris Bosh.
Word is that ONeal has been blocking EVERYTHING in the informal scrimmages the Raps have been holding. One Raptor official told me he swears J.O. had about 20 blocks in one pick-up/scrimmage game last week.


The tournament brought out a ton of players. Not only did folks have a chance to interact with ONeal, Bosh, Ukic, and Bargnani, but Jose Calderon, Hassan Adams, Jason Kapono, Will Solomon, Anthony Parker, Kris Humphries, and Jamario Moon were in attendance as well.
