Let's not even get started on Shaquille O'Neal! So, according to the BMI scale, The Rock, Shaq, and King James are overweight - dangerously so! Someone should warn them, and get them to work out more to shed those unhealthy pounds, right?
The reason why LeBron James, Shaquille O'Neal, and Dwayne Johnson are 'overweight' is that they have large, heavy muscles, and thus weigh more. However, their 'rotund bellies' are healthy, and packed with rock-hard muscles, instead of flabby fat.
This is where the fallacy in BMI is exposed.
