I remember he bulked up around 04-05ish to like 220, but when did he go back to 200 pounds?

edit: ****, nvm looking into this he was 230 around 04-05 apparently and 220 earlier than that. I still have no clue when he lost it. It was before his championship run for sure though

He lost that bulked up weight right after his "rape" trial. He was very muscular looking that year. But he decided that weighing 205 at 6'6" was better for longevity and fluid motions than being 225 at 6'6"


And what a smart move considering Wade is 6'4" 215 and his career is just about over as his body wont hold up for 2 more regular seasons....Meanwhile there is no reason Kobe can't play 4 more solid seasons

i believe it was around 06-07, whenever they had the Redeem team scrimmages in Las Vegas. Said he wanted to get faster

Yeah, I agree that it was a good move. He's been doing all the right things for his career to last a long while.

Thanks

He lost his weight as he lost his hair.
