In just his second season in the NBA Anthony Davis was already a phenomenal talent, his athletic ability leading to an All-Star appearance for the New Orleans Pelicans star.

That is nothing on what he has planned for next season if recent reports are to be believed.

According to, the forward has already put on 15 pounds of muscle during the NBA off-season as he looks to prepare for the 2014-15 campaign.

He now weighs in at 237 pounds which is a frightening prospect for any of his opponents especially considering that he led the NBA in blocks at his previous weight in the season just gone.

Pelicans coach Monty Williams is excited about just what Davis will be able to offer next year as he continues to develop:

"He's just naturally getting bigger," said Williams.

"It's weird seeing him. He's put on some muscle. I'm not going to be cracking a lot of (skinny) jokes about him anymore....I'm like you have to be messing with my wife and kids for me to attack him now."

Davis will have the chance to showcase his new physique in this summers FIBA basketball World Cup for Team USA but having already led his team in points, rebounds and blocks last year he is already showing that he has the potential to become a regular on the All-Star roster.

A skinny Anthony Davis was good enough, a Davis who can be physical with the best of them is a whole different proposition.
