Because you don’t know that for a fact., and it’s Geno’s business. I get that you wish him a long healthy life, but this is very judgmental- We should be talking about basketball here.Hmmm. Since your comment seems to be aimed at me I will offer this reply. You seem to be implying that my comment that it is unfortunate for Geno's health that he is carrying excess weight is some type of cover for tasking a shot at Geno or as you put it "Judging him".
Well you don't know me so it's pretty hard for you to have any idea what I think or how I think. But, I stand by my statement that his added weight is unfortunate for his health. Are you arguing with that?
I don't know about you but I hope Geno has a long and prosperous rest of his life. I'd like him to coach as long as his mind decides he wants to do that. I'd like him to be able to walk and play golf and do all those things most people take for granted and do them relatively pain free or without restriction. Excess weight increases the odds of restrictions on those things and those things are a list too long to try to compile. Heck, added weight puts a extra strain on your knees and he's a guy that has already had knee issues.
Geno has given a lot to the UConn WBB program, and to the fans of the Huskies and to Basketball in general.
I personally would like him to be able to have a comfortable long life after basketball. Not one bothered by all the health issues that CAN result from excess weight. He deserves it.
So what's wrong with saying his excess weight is unfortunate for his health?
