Anthony Davis calls New Orleans home

4

Sorry Chicago, but it appears Anthony Davis' heart is in New Orleans.

The coach said after players finished working out in Los Angeles recently that Davis told Gentry and GM Dell Demps that he was tired and wanted to get back home.

Gentry recalled saying, "So your going back to Chicago?"

"Davis said no, he was going home to New Orleans."

"The fans in attendance loved the story of Davis' love for the city that has embraced him in his three years in the league."

Before signing his extension, there was a lot of speculation that Davis would either choose a path that would hasten his departure from the Crescent City, or at the very least, circle the extension's expiration date on his calendar. The story by Alvin Gentry yesterday further cemented that nothing could be further from the truth.
