I hear a lot of people talking about how bulking up decreases injury risk, but is that necessarily true. When you’re 7’3+ tall, doesn’t having too much weight put a lot of strain on your body. Yao Ming’s injury was stress fracture, which I imagine was partially caused by his weight of 310 pounds. Being super tall increases your injury risk, but not by as much as you might think. There are two reasons why. First, a lot of tall people have gigantism. People with gigantism are far more likely to be weak and get injured simply because they don’t grow the same way as normal tall people and their musculoskeletal system cannot handle their height. Victor Wembanyama doesn’t have gigantism, so his risk is already reduced. The second problem is that there are so few people that tall, so you often have to make a sacrifice. You don’t have a large enough pool to choose people who are going to be as agile and injury-resistant as the shorter people in the NBA. I mean there aren’t enough tall people in the world to find one as agile as the guards in the NBA, so of-course they are going to have a higher chance of getting injured. Injuries are highly inversely correlated with your control over your body. Skill in manoeuvring your body and understanding where your body parts are at all times will reduce your risk of injury, especially in the fast-paced athleticism-based game.
He shouldn’t have to. There are other ways to post up without relying on bully ball and your strength.
Answer: Look at Hakeem and how he plays.
If they don’t neglect tendon strengthening then the big man can last a lot longer than what we have previously seen. It is okay to build muscle as long as you also focus on flexibility and tendon strengthening. If the medical team can work on day by day form reconstruction, players like d rose, Shaun Livingston could have avoided their injuries – for both of them tendon neglect and form was their downfall. It is is inevitable for it to happen to players like ja morant and Zion Williamson if the trainers don’t put focus on that aspect of their injury prevention.
Being lanky is worse
Yes being taller does means greater likelihood of injury so adding mass also makes it more difficult on your joints etc. That’s why these super bigs have short career spans, but they’re careers will be shorter if they don’t put on weight, because he’s not gonna be able to battle in the post if he remains a twig
Bulking up help protect against injury because the muscles protect the bones and cartilages. There’s just no way to determine the ideal proportion, more so individually. But with today’s NBA with less body banging, tall players will also have longer careers like the smaller players.
Even though this video is about Victor, every time you mentioned Arvydas Sabonis a smile lit up on my face (I’m Lithuanian). Thanks for the praise you gave him!
smagu kad ir kiti lietuviai žiūri Jimmy!
@Zackary would’ve been so much better in the modern day nba
Such a underrated player, Like a Jokic in the 90’s
However my future turns out, I will always love the game of basketball. Hopefully things go well though!
If this is the real Victor. Please, please. Check out Kneesovertoesguy’s (Ben Patrick’s) teachings and training program. This is not an ad, I promise. I think that Ben Patrick is your best bet in order to stay healthy and uninjured.
If you come to Boston you’d continue the tradition of champions, as well as bill Russell to Robert parish to KG. There’s no fan base that lives and breathes basketball like Boston. The city of champions. Title town. Tom Brady. Bobby Orr. Ted Williams. Paul Pierce. Soon to be Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown. Come complete the trifecta and win win win!
Good luck kid
I’m rooting for you! Hopefully you can come to the wiz!
We all rooting for you man! Keep working on your game and your health! We’ll keep supporting!
If I was in the nba I ain’t gonna lie I would train with Lebron and learn from him how he stay so healthy and last so long 💯
@Tristan P LeJuiced
Lebron does invest heavily in his health but also genetics lol
Obviously the frame is worrying. However, the last time a tall skinny guy from Europe with a unique last name and great work ethic came into the league, he put on a ton of muscle weight and became the best player in the nba
Still 7’5″ is worrying af even putting it lightly. Wold love to see him play at least a good 10-12 healthy years
Adding muscles does NOT improve your joints. Biggest misconception.
Doing specific Exercises from physical therapy rehab does help improve your joints.
Is Giannis better than Embiid? The other giant said to be the best player currently in the league, according to Shaq himself.
@Brandon Austin is not easy to build muscle while being over 7 ft tall
Found about him last year from 2k. Had 7 mvps bruh and avg 29 on his career. Idc if it’s 2k but the fact that he’s actually 7’3 and has a skill like that, got me interested.
I play 1 on 1 with him last year he plays very hard like dude looks skinny but he plays physical and he pay attention to detail every time I think had a shot to score he comes out of nowhere and blocked my shot he not a talker but this dude is tough and dedicated to to the game of basketball 💯
Alone, his guard like dribbling and shiftyness says a lot about how deep his bag is
I remember in early 90’s Sean Bradley at 7’6″ was getting this exact same type of hype. He’s a giant that can handle the ball and shoot we’ve never seen anything like him. We all thought he’d be the #1 overall pick but then Chris Webber was drafted and we all thought PHI got a steal at #2 overall in Bradley. Sean ended up be a damn good player but he wasn’t HOF caliber or even All-star level but he was NBA Starter good and lead league in blocks and averaging at least 3 blocks a game for each of his first 6 seasons. One interesting highlight of his was staring in Space Jam with Jordan and Barkley.
Cheers to every sportsman who can play wherever they want. Sabonis was drafted in 1986 at 22, but the communists did not allow him to travel to the US, so he arrived in the NBA only in 1995, when he was a 31-year old with TWO Achilles’ injuries. Still, he managed to put up good numbers.
