Lakers Fans Loved The Fact Pelicans Sat Anthony Davis For Matchup


Anthony Davis may be staying put in New Orleans (for now), but that still won’t stop the plethora of rumors surrounding the Pelicans star about where his next destination will be.

Davis is expected to leave New Orleans for greener pastures after the 2018-19 NBA season. And one team that’s been mentioned heavily is the Los Angeles Lakers. The two teams met at Smoothie King Center on Saturday night, and many were hoping to see Davis and LeBron James on the same court.

But New Orleans had other plans and benched the 25-year-old for rest.

And as it usually does, the world of Twitter (mainly Lakers fans) had a field day with the news, pointing out Davis already is helping Los Angeles win.

Although some thought Davis was “helping his future team” steal a victory, it was the Pelicans who walked off the court with a 128-115 win.
