Uh oh: Papa Davis getting upset, AD saying the right things...


LINK

quote:

After the game, Davis’ father, Anthony Davis Sr., was seen marching out of the family room near the Hornets’ locker room at the arena, visibly upset and shouting loudly into a phone about his son not playing for nearly the entire fourth quarter.


quote:

Davis admitted that any basketball player would want to be on the floor in a late-game situation as the Hornets were against the Lakers with the significant lead dwindling. New Orleans Hornets Anthony Davis talks about loss to Lakers Anthony Davis scored 13 points and grabbed six points but played only two seconds in the fourth quarter. Watch video "You want to be in that situation,’’ Davis said. "We're going to learn from this situation right here from watching the film. We have to do a better job of closing at the end games and holding leads. That's something we're going to get better at.''

I don't think Monty will be gone any time soon, but it would not surprise me if he were to get the can. Benson may get a little stubborn when it comes to this team. He has made it very clear that he wants to win now.

good...someone needs to say something about Davis' lack of playing, especially in the 4th quarter.

If it becomes a Monty or Davis thing (which it won't), obviously the choice is AD.

Can we please try to keep our superstar happy? It's unfortunate that it has to be this way, but that is the nature of the NBA today.

It's not like he hasn't been ballin when on the court.

You don't know how the NBA works, do you? We control Davis for atleast 7 years.

re: Uh oh: Papa Davis getting upset, AD saying the right things...


parents getting pissed that their son isn't playing a ton of minutes is one thing, but papa davis has a legitimate reason.

his son played 16 minutes through 3 quarters, clearly played WELL
5/8 (62.5fg%) 6reb, 1ast, 2TO, 2blocks and a +9 differential with 13 points.

team is up a good bit lets say 20, dwindled down slowly and got beat. team gets OWNED in the 4th quarter without AD, coach keeps AD on the bench. Lead cuts down to 10, still on bench. lead gets down to 2 pts, still keeps him on the bench. lakers go up like what 4? with 20 seconds left, puts him in.

that's inexcusable and I'd be pissed off too

Family members are idiots when they speak for the players. That said, nothing he said was wrong. Monty has done a piss poor job w AD's minutes all season.

I agree but to be fair this is someone seeing his dad doing this "privately" at a game, not a press release or press conference from him.

He's not going to turn down a max contract extension to play for his $9m qualifying offer, so he's definitely here for more than 5 seasons.

He can still get the max via a sign and trade.
