I think it's funny when big guys can't lift much but the bench press is a horrible lift for NBA players...they got such long arms. People who excel at the bench are usually smaller guys and it helps a lot to have short arms. I'm 5'7" and I guarantee that my bench press vs. body weight ratio is far better than 90% of the NBA players in the league. Not because I am incredible hulk, but because my arm length is just slightly more than 1/2 of those big guys.
1. Your right about the new look I remember seeing pics last year but he only played like 2 minutes this season.
2. About that, your right about the arm length and all, the range of motion is much easier when you are shorter. But I work, have school, and a social life and I am still benching a decent amount of weight over my own.
The way I look at it is, if someone gave me a couple million dollars I would bust my tail in the gym because I wouldn't have to worry about money etc.
Durant is only a year out of college, so I will give him a pass but a lot of guys should be putting up more weight than they are.
