Who picks the clothes you wear? Anthony Davis says someone else chooses for him

Why not just own it?

I think I was about six years old the last time anyone laid out my clothes for me to wear.

Since then, I - for better or for worse - have picked my own clothes. 

Pelicans star Anthony Davis says someone else picks what he wears.

Now, I don't make $25 million a year.  However, even if I did, I think I would still pick my own clothes.

The six-time All-Star told reporters at his season ending news conference that he didn't pick the "That's All Folks" shirt that he wore to what appears to be the final game for Davis as a Pelican.

In January he demanded to be traded to another team.

"Why did you choose that T-shirt?" Davis was asked.

"I didn't choose it.  I actually didn't choose it. It was hanging for me already when I put my clothes on," Davis replied.

The follow up question was, "Do you know who hung it?"

Davis responded, "No, I'm not sure."

Listen to the exchange:


Now, I just think if you are going to try to bring some comic relief to a tense situation... or if you are trying to make a statement with your shirt... just own it!

Don't allege some clothes fairy left the shirt for you to wear.  Don't blame someone else for it.  Don't lie and say you don't know who picks your clothes for you.  Don't act like you have no free will and are at the mercy of some mystery clothes picker.

Just tells us that you wanted to make a statement or you thought it would be funny or something, anything other than acting like you had no control over the situation and just blindly put on whatever was hanging for you when you put your clothes on.

This is, though, a pretty appropriate final chapter in the Anthony Davis story in New Orleans.
