I was doing a little Clarence Weatherspoon research (don’t ask) and I came upon this:
August 30, 2000: As part of a 3-team trade, traded by the Miami Heat with Chris Gatling and a 2001 1st round draft pick (Brendan Haywood) to the Cleveland Cavaliers; the Cleveland Cavaliers traded Shawn Kemp to the Portland Trail Blazers; the Portland Trail Blazers traded Gary Grant to the Cleveland Cavaliers; and the Portland Trail Blazers traded Brian Grant to the Miami Heat.
Now, I’d call the 2000 versions of Spoon, Gatling and Kemp fat outright and Haywood kind of fat. I think Gary Grant might have been a little fat too.
Either way, what a bunch of fat guys getting traded.
