What was the name of that fat kid that played for Green Bay a couple years ago? I swear, the first time I saw him I thought he was the team manager.

Fat players are great if they can play and use the weight as an advantage.

I liked Matt Stainbrook at Xavier (formerly a WMU Bronco). He tore up the NCAA Tourney a few years back.

udballer, I remember this kid. He wore goggles when he played. I also seem to remember that he lost a good bit of weight after he transferred. Am I right or imagining that? I swear it seems like he lost weight after going to Xavier and became a very good player. I don't trust my own memory, though. Maybe he just ditched the goggles or went to a more fashionable version that made him appear slimmer.

No, I've not been drinking.

It was nearly 30 years ago, but i dont recall Buford as being really fat. The heaviest titans that I recall are Mark Maxwell and Pat Lacy.

Agree on Snackswell and Lacy, but I am pretty sure Buford was up there hence the nickname given.

You nailed it, Moose. The goggles were a dead giveaway. He did lose quite a bit of weight for Xavier but was still a big boy. Chris Mack also made him lose his trademark knee and elbow pads, in addition to the weight. :D

Maxwell was a finely sculpted adonis, I won't hear otherwise on the matter!! :) Having said that, when the game got uptempo he was certainly gassed after making it up and down the court 1 or 2 or 3 times.

Rick Mahorn in his final go round with the Pistons had filled out nicely. He needed a walker out there to heave his weight, but he still was crafty on the defensive end and would routinely have success with the 'pulling the chair out' move inducing a travel or turnover.
