Slimmed Down DeJuan Blair Making Impact
Posted By HOOPSWORLD On October 16, 2012 @ 8:02 am In All,Headlines,NBA Headlines | No Comments
You can see the makings of six-pack abs through the stretchy, skin-tight tank top DeJuan Blair wears under his practice jersey.
Some of his teammates insist he’s gotten skinny.
“I’ve been getting that a lot,” Blair said after a Monday morning practice session. “But I don’t take that to my head because I’m never skinny. I’m still DeJuan. Still big.”
Through the first four preseason games, Blair has been one of the team’s most productive and consistent players. In just 12.5 minutes per game, he has scored 38 points and grabbed 20 rebounds. He has made one basket from at least 15 feet in the past three games.
Blair believes the conditioning visible through a tight undershirt can reduce the sorts of mistakes that anger his coach.
“I believe a lot of my mistakes last year were tired mistakes, lazy mistakes, lazy fouls,” he said. “I’m still human, but at the end of the day, if I can cut down on mistakes, I can stay out there longer.”
