    He's started taking threes and added 15 lbs. of muscle.

    Also good to see he is in town working out with his teammates, probably the best chemistry among a group of guys ever.

    Rudy making 40% of his open looks from 15 to 18 ft out would add multitudes of possibilities to an already dynamic Jazz offense.

    It would probably make the offense worse.

    They are contractually obligated, if they want their full salary, to spend a certain amount of time in Utah.

    Makes sense but has this been fact checked?

    Not sure if you're joking but it's a common thing to be reported and it turn out to be absolute ********.

    Go ahead. I don't know where you could, but DL has stated it in interviews.

    He said taking threes not making threes. Figured it was truth. :D

    Would love to see 15 lbs more on Rudy. His frame could probably handle it without losing much quickness.

    Everyone adds 15 lbs in the off season because most players lose that during the season. Rudy definitely does not need to get any bulkier. More weight just leads to more knee issues. There is no one in the NBA he needs more weight to guard.

    Sure he does. 15 pounds is nothing on a 7 ft. frame, especially for a guy who is already fairly svelte. His knees would probably benefit from more weight since some of it would end up on his legs. He wouldn't lose any quickness. I bet Rudy is the type of guy that has trouble putting on weight. He did it big time several summers ago but it probably wasn't easy. A little more mass would make him that much more beastly, IMO.

    Saint Cynical strikes again!

    What you said may be true, and what I said may have been a not so obvious satire of a sports cliché .

    They all add 15-lbs if muscle, improve their shot, are in the best shape of their life, love the community and their teamates.

    Opponents would encourage Rudy shoot 2s @40% all day long. It would make our offense worse.
