Myles Turner flexes insane weight loss ahead of Pacers training camp
Indiana Pacers center Myles Turner has been one of those guys who are predicted to churn out an All-Star year every season but somehow, he has always fallen short of expectations. Well, it definitely looks like Turner is a man on a mission this upcoming campaign.
Despite the rumor mill running strong on Turner, he remains as a member of the Pacers, who will have a new direction this season with returning coach Rick Carlisle. Early on, it’s clear Turner is ready to be a major piece in their fresh start.
He posted on his Twitter on Monday his impressive weight loss just this offseason. In less than six months, he lost 25 pounds and shed 5.5 percent of body fat. We’re not math experts, but those numbers sound awesome. His body looks ripped as well, with a six-pack to boot!

Turner entered the NBA in 2015 as a wide-eyed 19-year-old after starring for Texas. He looked a little heavy during his first two years with the Pacers, affecting his mobility. But in the past three seasons, he has learned how to develop his physique, even developing an outside game with his improved agility.
Now, he looks even more fit with his incredible body transformation. Turner has been seen playing in a bunch of pickup games recently, which most probably helped his conditioning and weight loss.
Turner will once again team up with Domantas Sabonis, Malcolm Brodgon, and Caris LeVert in trying to lead the Pacers back into the NBA Playoffs after missing out last season.
