It’s homecoming week for Anthony Davis as he will play NBA pre-season games in Chicago and Lexington over the next six days. The Pelicans sat down with Davis to talk about his emotions about the upcoming itinerary as part of the team’s “24 Seconds with…” series.
Here is what he had to say about his return to Lexington:
“[What I like most about going back to Lexington is] just being back in Kentucky, playing on the floor again in Rupp Arena, having fun, seeing all the coaches there. Also seeing the upcoming Kentucky team and all of the fans.”
“There are only certain cities where I hear [the opposing team’s fans cheering for me]. Of course Chicago is one of them. Maybe L.A. and the New York Knicks too. The rest I never really notice. That’s very rare to happen, especially on the road. That’s huge, that’s big-time. Hopefully I keep those fans and it keeps growing. But to be honest, a lot of it is Kentucky fans. They are everywhere. When we go to Memphis and Indiana, they are all there. It’s just good to know that even when you’re on the road, you still have a fan base supporting you.”
What can I say? Blue gets in.
