Anthony Davis Says He Has "No Control" Over What Clothes He Wears


Prior to Tuesday night’s regular season finale in New Orleans, the Pelicans Instagram account shared footage of Anthony Davis arriving at the Smoothie King Center in a t-shirt that read, “That’s All Folks!”

The choice of shirt was fitting, considering this will surely be Anthony Davis’ last season with the Pelicans. However, Davis says he isn’t responsible for picking out the shirt. In fact, AD later explained he has “no control” over what he wears to the arena. 

When asked why he wore the t-shirt, Davis told reporters, “I didn’t choose it. I actually didn’t choose it. It was hanging for me already when I put my clothes on.”

Pressed further, the 26-year old All Star continued, “Every night. Every night Big Shot lays out what I’m gonna wear to the game.” He added, with a smile, “I have no control over that. I just put it on.”

Davis didn’t suit up for the Pelicans on Tuesday, as he finished the year with seven consecutive games on the bench. New Orleans suffered a 112-103 loss to the Golden State Warriors, bringing their season to a close with a record of 33-49. 

Heading into the final night of the regular season, that mark stands eighth worst in the NBA, leaving the Pelicans with a 6% chance of snagging the #1 overall pick and a 26.3% chance of landing in the Top 4.
