- Guess what? It's another Anthony Davis article but this one's worth a read. Here's a glimpse:

Davis, who now weighs about 235 pounds, said his ability to absorb contact has been a "big improvement" from Year 1 to Year 2. Being rail thin was his biggest weakness in college, as he would tend to get bumped off balance in traffic. He's getting to the free-throw line 2.8 more times per game this season, while shooting a respectable 76.1 percent.

"(Daniel) definitely helped me out getting stronger, and it's improved my game on the floor," Davis said. "I'm able to get hit on the arm or upper body and finish at the rim, or at least get a shot up and draw a foul. Even when I'm driving by guys, they're not able to just bump me off line, so it's huge and it's getting me a lot more scoring opportunities at the rim."

- Geaux Pelicans!!!
