Anthony Davis

 

 

One of the main concerns when entering the NBA Draft a year ago for Anthony Davis, was his slender frame. The #1 overall pick of the New Orleans Hornets measured at 6’11, but only 220 pounds. Making many wonder whether the young center would be able to handle the physicality of the NBA.

For the most part, Davis has done well in his first season. And it appears that bulking up and adding weight for the future is a priority for Davis. He’s just doing it by eating something very specific. Marc Spears elaborates below.

New Orleans offers some of the world’s most renowned restaurants like Emeril’s, Commander’s Palace and Herbsaint. So what dish has Hornets rookie Anthony Davis fallen in love with since arriving to the Crescent City?

Pizza.

Specifically from the city’s Reginelli’s Pizzeria chain restaurant, where his pie of choice is a large with double pepperoni and double sausage.

“He eats pizza, man. It’s like if anyone says, ‘P … I’ and then, ‘Pizza,’ he perks up,” Hornets coach Monty Williams said. “This dude has this fascination with pizza. It’s unreal.”

Despite the calories and carbohydrates acquired with each meat lover’s slice, Davis, a slender 6-foot-11, 220-pounder, has not gained much weight since being drafted No. 1 overall last year. Davis says his high metabolism is keeping him from picking up pounds.
