He later dropped that weight and was putting up solid numbers, and then the American flag incident happened.
He was the Nuggets leading scorer when the flag incident happened. Along with Dikembe Mutombo, Abdul-Rauf was the Nuggets best player, hands down.
They traded him to Sacramento the next year, where he was the second leading scorer to Mitch Richmond. But apparently everyone hated him, even his teammates. The next year his numbers went down, and poof - out of the league just like that.
He went from being an NBA team's top scorer to out of the league in 2 years.
