Kentucky’s NBA Combine Measurements Released

The NBA Combine is officially underway in Chicago.

The festivities began with simple measurements.  The results from Kentucky’s representatives — Hamidou Diallo, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Kevin Knox and P.J. Washington  — prove just how lengthy last year’s team was.

    3% body fat?! That’s getting in the unhealthy range.

    That wingspan will help PJ, but the Chuck Hayes’ don’t exist in the NBA anymore. On the other hand, Knox’s measurements don’t help.

      Horse. The small ball 5 is exactly that

      Small ball 5’s have to be able to shoot 3’s for it to work, and PJ hasn’t shown yet that he can do that really

    I gained 3% body fat just sitting in this chair all afternoon.

      Well Bowen is in the draft as a guard with a higher BF. 6.5% isn’t terrible for someone his size.

    6.6 1/2 for PJ?….oooof that will about do it.

      6’8 with shoes, last time I checked they play with shoes. 6’8″ is not tall enough either, but better than 6’6″.

    Those body fat percentages are complete bullshit. I’ve been in bodybuilding for over 15 years and even the top pro’s in the sport rarely get to even 4-5% for a show, and can only hold at around 4% for maybe 72 hours before kidneys start to shut down as well as everything else. A person can have visable abdominals at 10-11% on average. None of these kids are anywhere near 3-4%. Sorry. Rant over.

      I think the same thing every year. I expect the schools to exaggerate the body fat % when they’re in school but how can the NBA combine be so off every year? These guys are in amazing shape, but no way they’re under 7%
