Being in shape is very important in sports, more when you’re a pro and even more when you play in the NBA, arguably the most demanding major sports league in the world when it comes to the players’ fit.

When one baller is overweight, that impacts their game considerably and having guys whose total weight is way bigger than other squads can be a problem. We saw that with Draymond Green last season, but everything changed for the big man once he got in shape once again.

Redditor user adios-satipo wrote a very interesting article about the NBA teams sorted by roster weight and he deserves credit for this article.
