Anthony Davis Reiterates Commitment To Pelicans

HEAT 123- Pelicans 124 Game Recap

"It makes you think, because you're wondering if you're following in the same path".

While the Pelicans hold a loose grasp on the Western Conference's eighth seed - a half-game up on the Los Angeles Clippers and two losses better than the hard-charging Utah Jazz - it appears another year of the max contract extension Davis signed in 2015 will be squandered sooner rather than later.

Davis has waffled a bit on his public comments, even going so far as denying a quote he said to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski about Pelicans GM Dell Demps telling him the Celtics were interested in trading for him.

"Of course, I feel like we've had a strong year this year before (Cousins) got hurt", Cousins said. I'm here until 2021 and then we'll make a decision from there. "The last couple of years we've been trying to dig ourselves out of a hole because of the injury situation and the things that are going on. I have always said that I want to be here and that's still true".

New Orleans can breathe a sigh of relief.


Directed at New Orleans Pelicans' superstar Anthony Davis, Skip labelled The Brow as the most overrated player in basketball today.

"I don't go into any year saying that, 'OK, I don't want to be here, ' or nothing like that", he said.

The bigger question - the one that has followed Davis for several seasons now - is at one point taking it year by year and wanting to win become "this is the year" and "wanting to win now". Several parts about that statement - "take it year by year", "at some point you want to win", and "of course Cuz is a big factor" - have to give you pause.

The Pelicans had 14 seconds to set up a winning shot, but Davis' drive was cut off along the baseline and his awkward layup attempted missed and the game went to overtime after Miami was unable to get a shot from an inbounds play with.8 seconds left. "It feels great that we're winning and I feel like I'm contributing in some form or fashion. but I'm just falling back on my go-to of, when in doubt, play good defense and just rebound the basketball and run".

Davis also noted how in each season he's been with the Pelicans, injuries have wreaked havoc with the team's roster, depth chart and playoff potential.
