Kristaps Porzingis looks like he has bulked up this offseason
Kristaps Porzingis has not appeared in an NBA game in well over a year, but he appears to have spent plenty of time in the weight room as he works his way back from a torn ACL.
On Wednesday, Porzongis shared a photo of himself on Instagram in which he is looking pretty jacked. He acknowledged in the caption that the camera angle helped him, but it still looks like he has packed on some muscle since we last saw him on the court with the New York Knicks.
You can compare that photo with this one from a year ago, which shows Porzingis doing push-ups:
It’s obviously hard to tell how big Porzingis is from a photo of him banging out some curls for the girls, but it sure looks like he has bulked up. His wiry build was one of the concerns surrounding him before and after he was drafted, so it appears he has focused on addressing that.
The Dallas Mavericks made a huge financial investment in Porzingis before he even stepped foot on the court with them, which likely means they’re pleased with where he’s at physically. Perhaps his time in the gym has helped.
