The Dallas Mavericks held their annual media day yesterday, consisting of pictures, interviews, press conferences and more. Here are a few interesting snippets from the first day back with the team.

The season is almost here and the Dallas Mavericks are ready to get it started. With their annual media day taking place yesterday, there was a ton of information worth taking note of. Here are five snippets that will help get everyone excited for the 2019-20 Mavericks season.

1. Kristaps Porzingis does look massive

After roughly 19 months of rehabbing and preparing his body for the 2019-20 season, Kristaps Porzingis looks, feels and sounds like he is ready to take the court. During his press conference at media day, he talked about his work to improve his body post-injury. During that time Porzingis has gotten his weight all the way up to 242 lbs., which is as big as he has ever been.

The weight may seem large, but Porzingis talked about how he feels stronger than ever in his press conference. That strength was the main goal for all the time off because if he feels more stability with his knee, the chances of re-injuring it will definitely go down as well.

Porzingis talked about the importance of continuing to do his basketball drills throughout his time working out so that the added muscle mass never affected his shot or the things that are important to him on the court. This should be encouraging because it should come as no surprise to people that working out regularly can easily affect things like a jump shot if not worked on at the same time.

During Seth Curry‘s press conference, he said that KP shoots the ball even better than he originally thought. That is pretty high praise coming from one of the best shooters in the league and I think we will get to see it first hand very soon.
