The New Orleans Pelicans have been waiting three years for their moment to get back at Anthony Davis for forcing a trade to the Los Angeles Lakers and last night that moment finally came.
Last night, the Los Angeles Lakers lost to the Phoenix Suns 121-110, officially ending their hopes of making the play-in tournament. Their disaster of a season has been criticized by fans and analysts, and last night, the New Orleans Pelicans made sure to get in on it.
The Pelicans, whose record is 35-44 and will face the Spurs in the play-in, wasted no time hopping on social media to make fun of the Lakers’ situation and throwing shots at their former star.
The New Orleans Pelicans’ revenge
After the Lakers lost, the Pelicans tweeted that they made the play-in but made sure to throw in a sub-tweet at former Pelican, Anthony Davis.
For those of you who may not remember, in 2019 Davis wore a shirt with the words “That’s All Folks” in his last game as a Pelican before being traded to the Lakers that summer.
Davis would go on to win a championship with the Lakers in 2020. Now the Pelicans finally have their moment to relish in the disaster of a season the Lakers have had.
In fact, the Pelicans have been relishing in the Lakers’ pain all season.
With the Lakers out of the playoff picture and the Pelicans having a shot at the playoffs, fans of the team can finally feel satisfied that Davis got what he deserved, even if it took three years to get there.
