Sean May Won’t Play Until He Weighs 260

Until Sean May weighs 260 pounds, he’s not playing basketball for the Charlotte Bobcats.

It’s that simple and that non-negotiable. May told the Observer on Friday those were the orders he heard recently from Bobcats managing partner Michael Jordan and coach Larry Brown.

“MJ and Larry expressed to me that this is for my own good – for my longevity,” May said before Friday night’s game against the Philadelphia 76ers.

“Coach Brown is really old-school and really cut-and-dry. This is tough love-type stuff. Now I understand it, and I just want to play.”
