New Orleans’ hate for Anthony Davis endures during Hurricane Ida

No one in New Orleans wants anything to do with Anthony Davis – not even in a hurricane.

With Hurricane Ida ravaging Louisiana, many in the area have taken shelter and stocked up on food to ride out the storm.

A New Orleans resident shared a video of a supermarket that had nearly no food left on its shelves – with one notable exception.

The store still had a healthy supply of Davis’ signature lime and jalapeño flavored Ruffles potato chips – perhaps proving the city has still not forgiven him for abandoning the city to join LeBron James’ Lakers.

“No one wants this asshole’s Ruffles,” the caption read.

Davis spent the first seven seasons of his career with the Pelicans before famously requesting a trade in 2019, telling the team he would not sign a contract extension in the offseason. New Orleans held him out for much of the season as they attempted to find a trade partner, though they were only able to trade him to the Lakers after the season ended.

Davis then won a title in his first year in Los Angeles, likely causing more frustration among Pelicans fans.

New Orleans did win the NBA Draft Lottery that year and wound up with Zion Williamson, who has lived up to the hype since entering the NBA. Still, it appears not all is forgiven in the Big Easy.
