Listed at 295 pounds, he would not comment on his weight but says he is less than he was his first go-around with the C’s. It’s uncertain how the adjustment will pay off – the Celtics have to trim the roster for the start of the regular season. But the change in diet is something that will help Sweetney beyond basketball. “You see a lot of guys dropping like flies,” he said. “And I don’t want to be one of those people.”
Michael Sweetney has been around the world and back since the last time he played on the Celtics training camp roster in 2009. He’s played in Erie, Pennsylvania, Puerto Rico, Uruguay, and even as far as China pursuing his goal of getting back in the NBA. Along the way the 29-year-old forward has tried to adapt a new way of life, one that he hopes can help him get back on the court. “I’ve pretty much just trying to get in better shape,” he told CSNNE.com prior to Wednesday’s Celtics – Raptors preseason game. “I’ve been struggling with that a lot in my career, my weight going up and down. I’ve been working on it, trying keep it down.”
