Although it is in the very best curiosity that Anthony Davis re-patriates himself along with his teammates and continues his stellar play, the Pelican followers appear in the least thrilled to see him again. Just name it an episode bittersweet love, or quite a steep decline of a 7-year marriage – no matter you’ll however Anthony Davis was on the unsuitable finish of some boos final night time, and the Pelicans are however 56 video games into an 82-game schedule, 15 of which they need to play in entrance of their residence crowd.
“That was positively awkward,” Davis stated of his residence crowd reception. “Boo? OK. It would not matter to me. I will go on the market and play basketball. I used to be (shocked). But hey, that is life, man. Some persons are not gonna like me. I am simply comfortable to be again on the ground enjoying the sport that I like.”
The New Orleans subsequent residence sport is on Tuesday, February 12th in opposition to the Orlando Magic. Hopefully, cooler heads prevail within the lengthy march to the NBA postseason. In my opinion, Davis’s residence crowd reception will solely worsen the longer he sticks to his laurels.
