After the trade deadline disaster between the New Orleans Pelicans and the Los Angeles Lakers, Anthony Davis checked out mentally and physically. Playing a career low amount of games this season, everyone knew that he would be leaving and exploring other options this offseason.
AD is just plain unhappy in NOLA. It is a generally accepted and understand fact of the NBA this season. As the Pelicans played their last home game of the season on Tuesday, Davis rolled out of the locker room wearing a rather unexpected shirt. Apparently, he did want to make a grand exit from New Orleans. The shirt read: “that’s all folks”.
That’s pretty hilarious, but it obviously upset the masses of NOLA fans that have been supporting him the entirety of his career. He picked the perfect shirt to troll millions of Pelicans fans… or did he? When asked for a comment on the wardrobe choice, Davis had this to say:
That’s strange. NBA Superstar Anthony Davis has no control over his clothes. And all this time, I was under the impression that he was an adult that was capable of dressing himself. I assumed incorrectly. I realize that NBA players have stylists and pay other people to worry about picking out the clothes they wear on any given night, but he didn’t take one look at the “that’s all folks” shirt and think that maybe this is going to make a lot of people who love him mad?
I think he knew exactly what he was doing and I think he wanted to ruffle some unibrows on his way out. Absolutely hilarious and perfect troll job by Anthony Davis. I just wish he would own it and tell everyone just how much he really hated playing in New Orleans this season.
