Anthony Davis is leaving the New Orleans Pelicans this offseason with his middle fingers to the sky.
This afternoon, the former Kentucky forward was fined $15,000 by the NBA for flipping off a fan following the Pelicans’ 115-109 loss to Charlotte last night.

Davis, who has missed the last four games due to lower back spasms, was walking toward the Smoothie King Center exits when a fan yelled something his direction. In response, the 6-foot-11 big man tossed the bird right back with zero hesitation.

Pelicans Wave, a fan Instagram account, got several responses back from Davis late last night about why he gave a fan the middle finger.
“Some fan disrespected me,” he said. “Said something I didn’t like. … Never disrespected the city and never will. But of course they not gonna show what the fan said.”
Here was the entire interaction:
Just three more games until New Orleans’ season is over and Davis can look forward to finding a new home.
Three. More. Games.
