Anthony Davis is having a fantastic start to the 2013-2014 NBA season. Through 7 games the young, talented center is averaging 21.7 points and 11.6 rebounds per game. Impressive stuff coming from a 20-year-old who’s in just his second season in the league. But on this particular day, Davis isn’t making headlines for his play on the court. See, a Vine has surfaced showing the Center in a new and interesting light.
Check out the full Vine here!
The Vine appears to take place back a couple of years when Davis was still playing for the University of Kentucky. So what exactly is going on? Well…uhh…it appears Davis is being held down spanked on his bare ass by a teammate in the locker room.
Initially, you may think this is some sort of hazing. Especially with all of the news about Richie Incognito and Jonathan Martin going around lately. This has been a huge story in sports. It’s brought up so many questions of where exactly the line is drawn between hazing and just joking around. However, I think if you look closely at this short video then you can tell it’s just a couple of dudes messing around.
I mean, really, go watch the Vine again. Davis spends the whole time laughing and sticking his tongue out at the camera. I’m pretty sure he’s actually enjoying the whole thing. So there are a couple of options here. Either Anthony Davis is gay and hasn’t told anyone, OR this is just a hilarious video of 18 to 22-year-old teammates screwing around with each other. I’m thinking the latter of those two options seems pretty likely.
Knowing the world of sports journalism, however, I’m sure this story will blow up and be everywhere. Now that there’s been one story of hazing come out, that must mean that there are countless others that we’ve been oblivious to all this time! Although, it would be pretty funny to hear ESPN have to talk about Anthony Davis’ ass as a segment on Sportscenter.
