The maturation process is far from complete for the Pelicans star forward, 21-year-old Anthony Davis. Opponents and fans can expect to see a bigger, more seasoned All Star when next season begins.
Already this offseason, Davis has added another critical 15 pounds to his 6-foot-10 frame.
“He's about 237 right now,” head coach Monty Williams said. “That's really good for us. It gives us a good barometer for how much weight he can put on in a short period of time. He's already maxing out where we thought he'd be, and it's early in the summer.”
Walter Cornett, of Glendale, Kentucky, is the owner and operator of Walter's Wildcat World. He founded WildcatWorld.com in 1998 making it one of the oldest Kentucky basketball fan sites in operation today.
