Anthony Davis: Redskins fan?

So the New Orleans Hornets No. 1 pick in the NBA draft is on his way to London from Barcelona with Team USA basketball and falls asleep wearing a Redskins cap. Team USA teammate Kevin Love snaps a pic and puts it on his Instagram. Twitterverse subsequently explodes.

This is a bittersweet picture for New Orleans sports fans. First, there's Davis, representing the future of New Orleans basketball wearing a hat that isn't black or gold or have a fleur de lis. In fact, it's the hat of a team that the Saints will be playing in Week 1 (a team that, coincidentally, has their very own super-hyped rookie). This is also not the only time Davis has been pictured with a Redskins cap so there may very well be a trend here. Second, there's Chris Paul, representing New Orleans' past, hugging and (we can only assume) drooling on a pillow. It's all so much to take in.

For now, though, let's not overthink things and just enjoy the fact that even superstar NBA players/Olympic athletes look just as silly as the rest of us when they fall asleep on a plane.

h/t to everyone on the internet for pointing this out
