It’s not news that Anthony Davis is skinny. Ever since he arrived in New Orleans, the staff has focused on getting Davis to bulk up his 6’10” frame so he doesn’t get pushed around under the basket. Davis has been doing his part by eating copious amounts of…pizza. Apparently, Davis has picked up a pizza addiction since moving to New Orleans, with his go-to order being a large with double pepperoni and double sausage from Reginelli’s Pizzeria.
Hornets coach Monty Williams says his young star’s fixation is fascinating:
“He eats pizza, man. It’s like if anyone says, ‘P … I’ and then, ‘Pizza,’ he perks up. This dude has this fascination with pizza. It’s unreal.”
Despite eating all the pie he can get his hands on, Davis is faced with a problem a million women would kill for: his metabolism is keeping him from gaining weight. Williams wants Anthony to add fifteen more pounds of muscle through weight training and healthier eating over the offseason to achieve a strong and svelte frame like Blazers forward-center LaMarcus Aldridge.
Less pizza, more protein shakes, Anthony.
