Re: Eubanks 6'7" and 165 pounds, skinniest player ever?!

Wow, that doesn't sound healthy!

Benoit Paire, who's well known as a skinny player (despite eating crazy shit on his days off), is 176 at 6'5", two inches shorter. And his nickname is "La Tige" ('The Stalk'), because he's so tall and thin!

Thought I'd entered an alternate reality of the boxing forum for a sec.

Interesting wildcard choice. He plays at Georgia tech which is right there in Atlanta but still. He has only played 1 season at GT and he was never higher than #50 in the college rankings so not an elite college player by any means.

yuk eat a burger ffs
To be fair, sometimes it's metabolism. Paire eats TONS of burgers (and ham. and pizza. and soda. and and and.), and he's still skinny.

He looks like a starved child from Ethiopia or something :eek: Do his shots have decent power? Didn't watch him yet.

Eat more. Unless he has some kind of freak metabolic condition, fairly unlikely for someone who presumably has quite a few doctors visits every year, he just isn't eating enough to gain weight. As a professional athlete these guys naturally burn more calories than an average person and maybe it's difficult to eat enough to counterbalance that (or they don't want to), but it's unlikely that metabolic conditions are to blame.

Most people who think they can't gain weight just don't eat enough and vice versa.

Nice find, thanks! I hadn't seen him playing. I guess he's trying to copy Karlovic with the one-handed backhand :), if only his could one day reach the Karlovic level of smoothness and grace.
