    Ed Davis said he is up to about 233 or 234 pounds after ending rookie season at 216 #raptors

    Hopefully that is 17 pounds of muscle. Assuming it is and glad to hear.

    That is pretty good news, but you can bet your paycheck that once he get into "game shape" he will lose 5-10 of those pounds.

    Minimal the season even with being shortened is a gring on their bodies. Just look at Bosh is last year in TO when he came back jacked and as the season wore on he lost so much size. Great to hear he put in that work though!

    You can't gain anywhere near 17 pounds of muscle in such short amount of time. It's still good he's putting the time in though...

    BTW Hopefully he doesn't end up like Bargs when he gained weight (he got slower and less explosive).

    Bargnani was never explosive to start with...

    This is the information I was looking all over the web for, I wanted to see if this guy was big enough to try the 5 out for size. With this added weight he might be able to play the 5. His excellent defensive instincts could make him a very good center in this league.

    Part of it is maturation. He turned 22 over the summer. I'm 6'7" and between my 2nd and 3rd year of university I gained 20 pounds with some serious time in the weight room. Part of it was just getting older but the majority was training under a specific training program and diet (steak and eggs for breakfast, tuna for lunch, steak for supper - lol, not quite but close enough).

    Now im not too high up on bargs, but i do have to admit he has some ups. He's also very mobile for a 7 footer. So there is a bit of explosiveness in him. The only thing that lacks is defense and rebounding.

    lets not turn this into another bargs isnt thread.

    Im excited to see what davis will look like, and how he will play.

    This raises the question will the raptors depth chart look like this:

    PG- Bayless/Calderon
    SG- Derozan/Barbosa
    SF- James Johnson/Kleiza/filler (until Kleiza gets healthy)
    PF- Andrea Bargnani/Amir Johnson
    C- Ed Davis/Solomon Alabi

    That kinda looks like an exciting team to me... Just need a filler at the 3 maybe a Grant Hill?

    I have a brilliant idea on how to get players attracted to the idea of playing in Toronto.

    SIGN Toronto's own, Drake to do pre-match shows. BAM solves all our problems with reeling in stars

    Cant believe Colangelo never thought of it

    k this was a piss take so dont rip me

    Also, with Bargs shedding weight and getting fitter and Ed gaining some poundage, theyve pretty much directly switched roles which should cement Bargs move to PF, could mean that rather than having a 'blockage' at the 4 n 5 positions, they may go with what they have and Amir remains same role as last season, just Bargs and Ed switched.

    Wow. A playing weight of 235 would be impressive for a guy with his frame.
    Can't wait to see what he looks like.

    I went from 135 to 190 in 2 years after I hit 22. Unfortunately that was probably 15 pounds too many. I'd tried desperately to gain weight my entire life before that. The downside is that I struggled with knee problems for several years after that. And then, well, some years later my knees are pretty much shot. I wouldn't recommend gaining that much weight that fast to anyone.

    JJ supposedly added to his range. If everyone got better this summer (of the youth corp) we could be looking at one scrappy team.

    So he followed through on his promise and now he's got the mass to log some time under center. To gain that much muscle in that much time is a great accomplishment. He should feel proud.

    Were talking almost 8 months where all he has to do it train, I don't think it is a stretch at his age and body development.
