Default Eric Smith: Bargs IS Bigger

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

Originally Posted by Eric Smith

I just got back from golfing in the 2008 Raptors Foundation Charity Golf Tournament and I ran into a number of the players … and I’m here to tell you … Andrea Bargnani IS bigger. If I had to guess, I’d say he’s put on at least 10 if not 15 pounds. He’s 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. They’re getting used to the city and enjoying their new home. He also dropped some news that I didn’t know: he’s the proud father of an 11-month-old baby girl. Congrats Roko!


Jermaine O’Neal was at the tournament as well … though he wasn’t 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 O’Neal 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 O’Neal, 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.

There ya go, moon is there.

I saw Bargnani a while ago on television, I'm not sure he looked huge, but I did notice I could actually see muscle definition, which, had been non-existant before.

He used to be built like a bag of milk

I remember last year everyone was saying that Bargnani gained a lot of muscle at the beginning of camp too.

The more lean you get the bigger your muscles look.

Maybe he's actually lost some weight and getting ready to play some 3.

I really liked the JO part. Especially the part of him blocking all the shots he can in informal scrimmages
