After making headlines for wearing a shirt that had "That's all folks" written on it prior to the New Orleans Pelicans' 112-103 loss to the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday, Anthony Davis discussed his clothing choice.
According to ESPN's Nick Friedell, Davis said someone else picked the shirt out for him:
As seen in the following video courtesy of NOLA.com's Julie Boudwin, Davis said it is a regular occurrence for someone to lay out his clothes for him prior to his games:
Davis did not play in the Pelicans' season-closing loss to Golden State, meaning he has likely played his final game for the Pels after informing them earlier this season that he will not sign a contract extension.
The Pelicans kept Davis after he made his intentions known, but there is almost no chance that he will be on the team when the 2019-20 season begins unless New Orleans inexplicably decides to carry the saga into the regular season, like the Minnesota Timberwolves did with Jimmy Butler this season before trading him to the Philadelphia 76ers.
Assuming the Pelicans do deal Davis this offseason, he will depart New Orleans with averages of 23.7 points, 10.5 rebounds, 3.9 assists, 2.4 blocks and 1.4 steals per game over seven seasons.
Davis is a six-time All-Star and arguably the best big man in the NBA. Despite that, he was only able to lead New Orleans to the playoffs twice and won just a single playoff series.
After announcing that he would not re-sign with the Pels, Davis' minutes were limited and he sat out multiple games. As a result, he appeared in a career-low 56 games and New Orleans finished just 33-49 after going 48-34 last season.
The Lakers desperately need a superstar to play alongside LeBron James, and they have plenty of assets to deal in Brandon Ingram, Kyle Kuzma, Lonzo Ball, Josh Hart and draft picks.
Boston is also loaded with talented young players, including Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown and Terry Rozier, the latter of whom will be a restricted free agent.
Regardless of where Davis ends up, his shirt choice seemed like a less-than-subtle hint that he does not plan on suiting up for the Pelicans ever again.
