It seems that Anthony Davis wanted to clarify the comments he made yesterday while at Lulu’s Hot Dogs. Davis was talking to children from the Perspectives Charter School (Davis’s Alma Mater) boys’ and girls’ basketball teams.
A child had asked if he had the chance, would Anthony Davis return to Chicago to play for the Bulls? The response sent ripple effects through NBA twitter. “Honestly, it’s nothing like playing at home, I don’t know, I mean, I am a free agent next year, but we’ll see. It’s a possibility.”
Of course, AD wasn’t going to tell the child no. He didn’t want to come off as cold to the kid. Why would AD want to come home? Do we really think that AD loves the cold winters? Do we think AD sees promise on this young Bulls roster? Does he really think the Bulls are ready for a title run and he is the last missing piece?
Plain and simple, it would be great to have Anthony Davis, a top-ten talent in the NBA, on the Bulls roster, but it’s not happening. This Bulls team has many more question marks than I previously anticipated. The Bulls are 2-5 in a weak Eastern Conference and seem to have no flow or rhythm to their offensive game.
Gar and Pax did a great job of selling this young talent and head coach Jim Boylen to the Bulls fanbase. Though the Bulls are only seven games into the season, they already have controversy surrounding them, which seems to be nothing new for this franchise.
AD is focused on playing in Los Angeles with the Lakers and LeBron James so they can compete for a title, not joining a team who doesn’t even know their identity. I often love to look at the bright side of things and carry a “never say never” mentality, but this doesn’t apply here. Just let this pipe-dream go and hope the Bulls can somehow turn their season around.
