Anthony Davis is getting huge; becoming unstoppable

At the rate that the Brow is working out right now, the unstoppable part is going to be coming much sooner rather than later.

It is clear cut that Anthony Davis is one of the top five best players in the NBA right now; it is obvious that he is going to be purely unstoppable sooner or later. At the rate that the Brow is working out right now, the unstoppable part is going to be coming much sooner rather than later.

Davis has had an extremely productive offseason to date. Being a cover athlete for the video game NBA 2K16, signing the largest contract in NBA history, participating in the Team USA minicamp, and flat out working his behind off.

Part of what has been part of Davis' ridiculous offseason workout program has been consistent and intense work in the weight room. Coming out of college, critics hit at whether Davis would be able to get big enough and put on enough muscle to handle himself in the NBA. Once again, Davis is blowing critics away.

Spending a combined total of eight weeks in Los Angeles and Anguilla working daily with new Pelicans head strength and conditioning coach Jason Sumerlin, Davis has added on 12 extra pounds of pure muscle. Now up to an incredible 253 pounds while maintaining just 10 percent body fat, Davis still holds his athletic frame to go with it.

This intense work ethic will allow Davis to be faster, stronger and quicker while now being able to hold his own against bigger and heavier front court players. Physically, AD is in a league of his own now. Very few players are going to be able to match Davis' size and athleticism at this rate. Even less are going to be able to stop him; for it is not just physically where the Brow is beginning to prestige.

Davis has been working out on the practice court about as much as he has in the weight room; working on two specific aspects of his game that will mold the Brow into the likes of a gift from the basketball gods the we have never yet seen before. His back to the basket game as well as his post moves have been improving. Davis' face-up game was already lethal enough; now adding a back to the basket game will make AD an unstoppable menace in the post.

What has been even more impressive that AD has improved on? The weakest link of his already incredible skill set, the three-point shot. No, Anthony Davis was not splashing miracle three-pointers like the one he hit against Oklahoma City often. In fact, that was his only three of the season, and he's been hard at work on it this offseason.

Getting in that work today!

Former Golden State assistant and new New Orleans head coach Alvin Gentry is making sure that unlocks the three point shot in Davis' arsenal; it is working. Gentry has had Davis make 150 threes from each three point corner every single workout, and it's showing its effect on the young stud.

Let's just say that the association is in for something very special this season. Mini camp is now just a week away; be ready.
