That didn’t go over well in New Orleans, where fans saw it as an excessive parting shot from someone who already requested a trade that completely derailed the Pelicans’ season.
But Davis isn’t ready to accept blame.
Julie Boudwin of NOLA.com:
I’m a big cartoon guy. Looney Tunes is actually my favorite.
I didn’t choose it. I actually didn’t choose it. It was hanging for me already when I put my clothes on.
Every night, Big Shot lays out where I’m going to wear in the game. I have no control over that. I just put it on.
This is so weak. Maybe someone picked the shirt for Davis, but he still has personal autonomy.
If Davis thought the shirt was a funny way to exit, he should own that. If he thought the shirt sent the wrong message, he should apologize.
