Trevor Ariza has a problem just about everyone would love to have. The Lakers wiry small forward keeps trying to gain weight, but it just doesn’t stick.
“I think my metabolism is way too high,” Ariza said. “I really wanted to put on weight (in the offseason) but I only gained like five pounds. I ate everything, steak, potatoes, peanut butter and jelly, but it just wouldn’t stay on.”
In addition to trying to pack on the pounds, Ariza said he lifted weights and worked on his outside shooting. His injured foot, which caused him to miss about two months of last season, “feels 100 percent.”
