WATCH: Pelicans fan shows mad respect for Anthony Davis after trade request

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

At least one fan of the New Orleans Pelicans has made a video in response Anthony Davis requesting to be traded. But this fan’s take might not be what you think.

It starts off about as expected, with Davis’ jersey lying on the ground and the fan moving a lighter close to it. But that’s when it takes an unexpected twist.

It’s a better response than the one we saw from the NBA on Tuesday. That’s for sure.

Fans in New Orleans certainly have a right to be upset with Davis wanting to leave. But it’s undeniable that he’s done an awful lot for the franchise since he’s been there. This fan seems to recognize both ends of the spectrum.

And of course, we have to give proper respect to anyone willing to draw in a unibrow.
