    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.
    As a drop out from Kinesiology, and a certified personal trainer (now lapsed) I can guarantee that no one gains 17 pounds of muscle in a summer, even a long summer, unless they are hitting steroids big time, which I doubt is true in this case. He may well be 17 pounds heavier, but about 4 pounds is liquid and 4 pounds is fat. But considering the ration of muscle to everything else, 9 pounds of muscle is going to make him a lot stronger, since it will probably be equally divided between his legs (thighs) and upper body (chest, shoulders and arms).

    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 want to see how he looks too. But i have a feeling that we'll end up being disappointed when we do.

    Default ED bulked up

    TORONTO - Ed Davis knew he would have to hit the weights hard in order to build off of a solid rookie campaign.

    Davis’ father, Terry, a former NBA bruiser, told a Raptors scribe late last season that Ed would be “sleeping in the weight room.”

    Mission accomplished. The University of North Carolina product said he used his extended time in the gym in Los Angeles wisely.

    Davis, who said he finished the season weighing a slight 216 pounds, now seems more equipped to battle with the league’s burly veterans.

    “I got to like 236 (pounds) at one point, I’m probably like 233, 234, somewhere in there now,” Davis told the Toronto Sun.

    With no true centre on the roster aside from the very raw Solomon Alabi and since Andrea Bargnani is expected to move back to his more comfortable power forward position, the 6-foot-10 Davis might find himself manning the middle on some nights depending on what happens in free agency.

    Davis, who averaged 7.7 points, 7.1 rebounds and a block in 24 minutes per game and was jobbed out of a spot on the all-rookie team, said he had a “a couple of goals written down” for himself, but would not reveal them.

    Davis missed training camp and the pre-season in 2010-11 due to a freak injury and said he was understandably pleased to be healthy to start the campaign and to finally have the lockout behind him.

    The difference is:

    1) We didnt get Bayless until the 2nd half of last year, and he never
