It’s a known fact that NBA players love pizza, I mean, really, who doesn’t. Seriously, if you don’t like pizza, we can’t ever be friends. Ever. Some NBA players, even eat pizza right before games as their pre-game meal, not the healthiest thing to do, but it didn’t stop one guy from dropping 81 points on the Raptors. New Orleans Hornets’ rookie, Anthony Davis is no exception, he also loves his pizza, so much that you can not even mention a certain local pizzeria restaurant chain (Reginelli’s) around him without setting off his inner need for those Italian delicacies.
From Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports:
“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.”
There are however, downsides to his addiction. As a NBA player, it is his job to stay in shape and eat healthy foods to help him perform at the highest level. Even tho

PACK IT ON
Anthony Davis has reportedly been trying to pack on some pounds. What better way to gain weight than to stuff down some pizza?
Anthony Davis is living every little boy's dream. He plays in the NBA and makes millions of dollars, he (probably) dates Topanga or something, and he subsists of a diet mainly comprising pizza.
Yeah, it's true. The New Orleans Hornets rookie forward is too skinny, so he's just eating gobs and gobs of pizza to bulk up. Enter a story from Yahoo!'s Marc Spears.
New Orleans Hornets rookie Anthony Davis still has plenty of room to grow, literally.I'm not just referring to his overall basketball game, I'm referring to his physical body, as well.The 20-year-old boasts a 6-foot-10 frame, but is only listed at 220 pounds, and that number is probably being a little generous.Though Davis managed to dominate at the college level with his...
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...
Relying on the standout power forward’s “unreal” fascination with pizza, the New Orleans Hornets and head coach Monty Williams want rookie Anthony Davis to gain “an extra 15 pounds of muscle” in the summer. The 6-foot-10, 220 pound Davis, who New Orleans (26-49) took first overall out of the University of Kentucky in the 2012 NBA Draft, has averaged 13.2 points, 8.10 rebounds...
Eric Gordon was benched Friday night after a verbal altercation with Hornets head coach Monty Williams during a third quarter timeout against the Jazz.
According to Andrew Aragon of NBA.com:
Hornets coach Monty Williams and point guard Eric Gordon got into a screaming match during a timeout with 8:37 left in the third quarter. Millsap had just scored on a putback to put Utah...
Has Eric Gordon fallen out of favor in New Orleans?credit: sbnation.com
Eric Gordon has not quite worked out the way the New Orleans Hornets had hoped since he was acquired from the Los Angeles Clippers for Chris Paul. He has been injured on and off for the entirety of his stay in New Orleans, preventing him from really finding much of a rhythm. Gordon also seemed willing to leave...
All firing Byron Scott would do now is send the false message to Cavaliers fans that the organization was actually trying to win games in 2012-13 with the roster assembled.
This is what I reminded myself as Twitter erupted with cries for Scott's job last night following an uninspired loss to the Brooklyn Nets.
Winning this year specifically was never the primary objective...
