Anthony Davis is one the NBA's brightest young stars, and he's a fan of the Warriors. He was asked late last year about his team preference through a pair of different lenses and he responded with a pair of nods to Golden State.
Favorite jerseys (other than the Pelicans)?
“I’m a colors guy. I like Golden State’s colors a lot," Davis said back in October, according to RealGM.com. "Also, Cleveland has kind of an old-school blue jersey I really like that has this unique design under the end of the word ‘Cavaliers.’”
Favorite road arena?
“Golden State’s Oracle Arena, because of the atmosphere, which is always loud and exciting. It makes it a great place to play,” Davis said.
Davis, who is preparing to start the All-Star Game in front of his hometown fans in New Orleans, averages 23.8 points and 12 rebounds per game against the Warriors. The only road playoff games of the 23-year-old's five-year NBA career came at Oracle Arena in 2015. His five-year, $127 milion contract with New Orleans won't make him a free agent until 2021.
