The NBA is generally known as a league where only the fittest of athletes survive and thrive. But, every now and then, a player who is out of shape will somehow find his way onto the court.
Just to make sure we’re all on the same page here…Not every player on this list was a heavyweight, like Oliver Miller and Mike Sweetney. Some were just lousy athletes relative to their competition. And some players who appear on the list were actually freak athletes at one point in their career, before they made the transition from fit-to-fat.
Without further delay, we gladly present, The Most Out Of Shape (And Least Athletic) Players in NBA History.
forever the punchline for out of shape NBA players, “Fat Oliver Miller” was the NBA’s first true meme, long before the idea of a meme even existed. The fact that Miller would actually get into legal trouble with someone at a cookout just perpetuates the belief that Miller’s best attribute was his eating.
