    It's obvious that his issues weren't really about food; overeating was merely a symptom of a deeper problem that he wasn't getting help for at the time. This man's unfortunate story should make it clear that willpower isn't what some people make it out to be if a career was ruined and millions of dollars were left unclaimed because someone didn't seem to have it.

          It's so easy to comment and speculate on other's lives. John was disciplined and a great all around guy. We all have issues that could benefit from psychological or psychiatric help. Please stop with the "if it were me..." " he lacked..." rhetoric. I have the privilege of knowing Big John since Wadsworth Elementary. The video falls short on getting at what was the source. Nonetheless it was a good piece, but the narrative was a bit skewed to that of lack of discipline.

                Thumbs down. Don't tell me how long it took to create, I don't care. I use to make videos myself, and I would never think to put something like that at the very beginning of the video.

                    Some people's addictions are drugs,alcohol,smoking,or caffeine.
                    Many others are food.
                    My father was one of those. He never did drugs,smoked,or drank.
                    His weakness was foods. He had a very poor diet. He was diabetic and soon got gangrene from a cut toe he kept hidden.
                    He died in my arms before I could get him to the hospital Nov.30th,2012
                    RIP dad 😟

                                Why do these Players look so GIANT over these little Whitemen?
                                I mean, they look like a GIANT standing near these announcers and journalist. 😂

                                      John Williams ? Never heard of him. Sad story tho. Imagine getting paid hundred of thousands of dollars just to loose weight. Smh.

                                        I see a lot of similarities to Eddy Curry. Both very talented but weight problems brought down their careers

                                          If this guy knew about KETO...things would have been different. He probably had a problem with insulin and blood sugar. All he had to do was stop eating carbs. The fruit was killing his attempts to eat well. When you have an insulin problem, it's tough to keep weight off. So sad. Willing to bet money he was pre-diabetic at that time and went on to develop diabetes.

He missed more than half of four of those five seasons due to various injuries, which, though not necessarily caused by his weight, were certainly aggravated by it. His eight-year NBA career included five seasons with the Bullets, two with the Los Angeles Clippers, and one (his final season) with the Indiana Pacers. He left the NBA in 1995, but played for some years in the ACB league in Spain, with moderate individual success."
