One of the fantasies of media day around the NBA is the “look at Player X, he dropped 15 pounds and is really in shape for this season.” Often the weight loss is exaggerated, and certainly what is exaggerated is the impact that has on most players.

Jazz big man Enes Kanter may be the exception to the rule.

Kanter dropped 51 pounds since last season. Yes, 51. He went from 293 to 242 pounds in two months, tweets Bill Oram of the Salt Lake Tribune.

So what fad weight loss method did the Turkish center use? Was it P90X combined with the South Beach Diet? Pills? Freezing the fat? Old fashion starvation?

Nope, he stopped eating everything in sight, Oram said. Then he tweeted Kanter’s old daily diet.

Breakfast: A 6 egg omelet, 8 pancakes w/ sugar, whipped cream and a breakfast burrito.
Lunch: A pasta (such as chicken alfredo), a burger and an appetizer of some sort.
For dinner: Kanter ate another burger and some kind of large entree. Finally, dessert. Now he's down to salad and seafood.


Well, that should do it. Out of shape NFL offensive linemen would gain weight with that diet.

While Kanter may have lost the weight, let’s see how he plays before we say he’s the exception to one training camp fantasy.

242 lbs seems a bit light for him, I always thought he should be in the 260-275 range.

Maybe they told him to lose weight to play PF next to Al Jefferson at C.

Wow. Great job losing weight, he looks great...

But he's a little light in the back pocket now to play the Center position.

:man4: That's impressive. He looks ripped.

He doesn't look 242 pounds though. I think Duncan weighs more than that.

Hoooooooly crap. The new Anti-Dwight? Or, Dwight Negative? :man11: The dude really has skill (yes, I'm still eating crow), so it wouldn't surprise me if he had a breakout season.
