How much does Shaq really weigh?
Shaq was reported last year to be out of shape and around 350-360 and now is in shape at like 315. SHHHHIIIIITTTTT! The man is 7'1 and is packing alot of muscle and alot of flesh as well. My bet is an in shape shaq is about 355 and outta shape close to 4 bills. Any other guesses or comments?

It's hard to believe those stats some times unless you see him in person. In high school, my coach listed me at 6-2 285 which was way off since I was 5-11 265 in high school. I'm not doubting Sahq's height, but his weight can be hard to estimate. I have also seen Tony Parrish in person (safety for the 49ers ). He's listed at 5-11 210, he's almost 2 inches shorter than me and does not look 210, more like 190-195 ( he could have been off cycle though LOL )

Yeah, I just figured a BB forum would have some good bros to guesstimate his weight, your right hoops is the worst for inflating height, and football weight. I think Shaq's ht is legit but just seems awful low on the weight for that big of a man. Shaq isn't like Karl Malone a decent sized guy blown up with lifting, he's a big mofo period and has some muscle to boot. I think HS football coaches exagerrate their lines for psyche out reasons prob....Football players don't do near the roids they used to, I have a buddy who was messing with the girlfriend of a former Chiefs lineman from the 80's and he was roiding so bad it sent the g-friend searching for a "performer" as he was toast in the sack..NFL testing is much better than the farce that is baseball.

sorry but if you look at one football team and see how freaking large they are overall; you can tell they used/use juice...
you cant look at a ballplayer and tell (well most of them anyway)

i've met and hung out with alot of pro players and i was not very impressed with most of their size. One guy who was just huge was Mike Alstot(sp?). Ricky Williams, John Lynch, Derrick Brooks, are guys that if i had to guess after meeting them i'd say they weighed less than what they are listed at.
Ricky Williams, Alstot, and Lynch are all really nice guys.
Also, after seeing them in person i think that most of them have supreme genetics. I don't think drugs play as large a role as some people think.

Thank you for making that point. The NFL uses testing as window dressing due to the aftermath of the Lyle Alzado tragedy ( he abused roids by the way ). Maybe some defensive backs and receivers don't have to juice, but Linemen, Backers, Fullbacks aren't 100% clean, hell the Raiders had 5 players test positive for just 1 steroid, and they suck.Originally Posted by Bean
