Lionel Hollins is 6'3" tall, and weighs --at the moment-- 240 pounds. He says "my suits fit a little bit tight" and that he isn't in playing shape. So, being a big fan of Rachel Ray (really), the 61-year-old Nets coach agreed during Friday's program to accept a diet challenge from Ray and Dr. Ian Smith. He wants to get down to 220 within six weeks. That should be easy. He'll be sweating a lot of free agent decisions in early July.
Hollins, who's currently in Chicago for the NBA Draft Combine, says once the season is over, he's all about Rachel.
"I’m a big fan," Hollins told Ray. "When the season is over, I lay in bed and I watch Rachael Ray."
