The world’s greatest point guard has added some strength and mass to his frame this summer: “Paul has begun most days this offseason with workouts aimed at improving his strength, and his new bulk was evident at his basketball camp. Last season, he often logged close to 40 minutes a game and was worn out by the playoffs, when New Orleans appeared punchless in a lopsided first-round loss to Denver. Paul estimated that he is now between 10 and 15 pounds heavier than he was as a rookie in 2005-06. ‘It’s to make sure I’m durable for the season, for the amount of minutes I play,’ he said.”
