Back in December, rumors started to swirl that it was only a matter of time until the Pelicans sent Anthony Davis to the Lakers, and in the ensuing months, we were treated to some of the best NBA drama in recent memory.
In January, the New Orleans superstar announced he and his unibrow were hoping to head to greener pastures and the Lakers responded almost immediately with a trade package they’d likely had ready ever since LeBron shamelessly recruited Davis to come to Los Angeles.
While AD might have wanted a change of scenery, the Pelicans were on an entirely different boat and the team’s GM decided to straight up ignore calls from the Lakers as they angled to get someone who could help save what would turn out to be a waste of a season.
While the drama was unfolding, the Pelicans went to some incredibly petty lengths to distance themsevles from their star player, and on Tuesday night, Davis decided to repay the favor by rolling up to the arena wearing a “That’s All Folks” t-shirt to fire a shot at the team.
Davis—who is still under contract next season—was eventually asked about his choice of attire and had a fantastic response prepared.
The Brow is the latest NBA player to use his outfit to throw shade, as the likes of Russell Westbrook and Draymond Green have harnessed similar passive-aggressive ensembles.
I love the NBA.
