Coach doesn't like the fact he has gained weight. He doesn't want him to have a Karl Malone body, he wants Oden to be like a David Robinson build. He will do more cardio when it's safe. For now that only real working of his legs I see is his swimming rehabilitation.
I was talking to a bodybuilder in my gym (little basement gym with juicers only) He said gaining 30lbs of muscle in one year is extremly rare. He knows of guys who has done that jucing. It cost a lot. It is extremly dangours becaus the heart cant handle it. That is hard for a 5.7 footer, but for a 7footer I can see it happend
I think African American athletes in general have an easier time building muscle than the rest. There is no way in hell Oden would take steroids. Kevin Pritchard picks winners and that sort of behavior would never fit the culture of the Portland community. Who the hell in the NBA uses steroids, that **** is for Baseball players and NFL players.
