Anthony Davis on How Pelicans Fans Can’t Play Both Sides After They Booed & Cheered Him After He Publicly Asked For a Trade; Claims It Doesn’t Bother Him (Video)

Anthony Davis shouldn’t be confused by this.

Imagine telling your girlfriend you don’t want to be with her anymore, but you still stuck on the lease for 6 months, you can’t expect her to be happy with you when you come from work.

“That was definitely awkward,” Davis said of the crowd’s reaction. “Boo? OK. It doesn’t matter to me. I’m going to go out there and play basketball. I was [surprised]. But hey, that’s life, man. Some people are not gonna like me. I’m just happy to be back on the floor playing the game that I love.”

Davis said he wasn’t fazed by the fan reactions ranging from one extreme to another.

“You can’t be on both sides, man,” Davis said. “That stuff doesn’t bother me. I just want to play basketball. All this other stuff, the outside noise, the Twitter rants, it’s all good. It’s all good, man. It doesn’t bother me. I want to play, and being able to go out there and play the game I love for 25 minutes, it was fun.”

Davis says he doesn’t regret anything he does in life, but that is a lie, we all have regrets. If he could do it again, he likely would have handled it a different way.
