The first odd thing Anthony Davis noticed were his clothes shrinking. “Suddenly my pants and shoes weren’t long enough,” Davis said. “My mom just told me that she bought clothes; why did she have to buy more?” Growth spurts sometimes come when you least expect them. For Davis, it started when he was a 6-foot-2 freshman and playing like a guard at Perspectives Charter High in Chicago. Two years later, he started his junior season three inches taller.
