Anthony Davis Insists He Wasn't Trolling With His "Choice" of T-Shirt Last Night, Which is Either a Lie or a Cause for Concern
Excuse me? Are we supposed to believe that Anthony Davis doesn't have the authority to pick his own wardrobe, despite being a superstar in a league where style speaks as loudly as stats? My gut tells me that he's lying and was just passing the buck of blame to his stylist
after rocking an objectively funny fit to what's long been a cartoonish conclusion to his tenure in New Orleans, but if he's not then I'd consider his first grade level of free will as big a red flag as his past injury concerns.
I guess I shouldn't be surprised that he prefers off-court matters be put in his hands other than his own, as he silently let LeBron James and (literal) Co. rust his sterling reputation in about six seconds flat. Still, not having the presence of mind to take credit for and/or own his first praiseworthy public display of pettiness leaves me wondering whether he's cut out for the business of professional basketball.
The NBA isn't all about scoring at will as an intimidating and unguardable offensive presence, or protecting the rim with a pterodactyl-like wingspan. It's about showing a little me-first attitude while doing so. Unfortunately, too much 'tude would probably get AD's 'Looney Tunes' privileges revoked on picture day, seeing as he apparently has the autonomy and discretion of someone who still wears diapers...or would if they so happened to be laid out neatly for him at the end of his bed in the morning.
