Bulls Notebook

Hungary native David gets hungry in offseason

Thursday, October 7, 1999

Warning to NBA power forwards: Now David is Goliath.

The Michelin Man at the Berto Center in Deerfield these days is none other than Kornel David, who added a couple of dozen pounds of beef during the offseason.

"It's good weight," Bulls coach Tim Floyd said.

David Floyd wasn't so sure of that fact three weeks ago, when he learned that David was 24 pounds heavier than the 235-pound version of last training camp.

So concerned was Floyd that he asked team strength and conditioning coaches Erik Helland and Al Vermeil to rerun David through speed, quickness and agility drills.

"I knew that he had been lifting and working hard," Floyd said of David. "So I had him retested to find out if he had lost anything, and he was at the same level with the added weight that he had been a year ago. Given that, it has to help him."

David was perhaps the most pleasant surprise in an otherwise forgettable 1999 Bulls season, one in which the native of Hungary led the team in floor burns.

"He did this on his own," Floyd said. "He must have taken one too many knots on the head last season."
