Steve Kerr Threw Some Friendly Shade at Anthony Davis Today

Steve Kerr Threw Some Friendly Shade at Anthony Davis Today

Anthony Davis made headlines at the end of the regular season by wearing a ‘That’s All Folks’ shirt in what was probably his last game as a member of the New Orleans Pelicans.

Today, Warriors Head Coach Steve Kerr showed up to his pre-game press conference in a ‘Spiritual Gangster’ shirt telling reporters that it was just a “yoga phrase.”

Kerr then took a playful shot at Davis, telling reporters he almost wore his own ‘That’s All Folks’ shirt, but he doesn’t actually pick out his own clothing – just like AD.

Kerr is obviously joking, but it is interesting to see the turn that AD’s image has taken since he requested a trade from the Pelicans a few months back.

With the Pelicans hiring of David Griffin there is certainly a chance that AD could be convinced to stay but I personally would not bet on that. The bottom line is that AD wants to play with other superstars, something that the Pelicans realistically will not be able to acquire any time soon.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander Sets Career High with 25 against Warriors

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is playing like a ten-year veteran in his first career playoff series as the rookie finished Game 4 as the team’s leading scorer with 25 points.

In 31 minutes of action the former Kentucky point guard scored 25 points on 9-15 shooting which included 3-5 from long range. The performance sets a Clippers franchise record for most points scored by a rookie in a playoff game.

The fearlessness that Gilgeous-Alexander played with is something to marvel at, especially considering the match up against the back to back defending NBA Champion Golden State Warriors.

Unfortunately, the Clippers dropped their 2nd straight at home as the Warriors were able to squeak by with a 113-105 victory. Golden State now leads the series 3-1 with a chance to close out at home on Wednesday.

Looking ahead there’s no doubt that Gilgeous-Alexander’s play down the stretch will play a role in making the Clippers an intriguing free-agency destination this summer.
