We missed an anniversary yesterday

eloy-centaur Sometimes, even when there is no basketball, things slip through the cracks.  We do our best, but we're just people too.  So, I'm sorry for overlooking something so obvious and so worthy of celebration.  Ladies and gentlemen, yesterday was the fourth anniversary of Eloy Vargas making the Dunk of the Day.  Don't laugh at me. There's video proof below.   Yes, that was Eloy.  Eloy Vargas.  Believe it or not, this is what he used to look like.  Not plodding, not showing the lateral movement of the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.  Nope, Eloy once had enough basketball skill to average 25 and 15 - and that was just a few months ago.  So, what's happened? No one seems to know.  To me, it looks like he's gotten too heavy in his lower body or had steel beams placed from his hip bone to his ankle.  I'm not sure if they offer that surgery and doubt it would be recommended if they did, so maybe he's just gotten too heavy.  His conditioning doesn't seem to be awful, which is odd.  He just looks heavy, if that makes sense.  Maybe that was part of the plan in getting him to be an inside presence for a team that was a little thin in the middle already.  Maybe K-Lair just goes straight to his thighs.  I don't know.  I just know I like that old Eloy better than Eloy Centaurgas. Short of Doc Brown and a DeLorean, I'm open to any suggestions as to how we can get that old Eloy back. Oh, and happy anniversary.
