Who expected NBA superstar Anthony Davis to be among the celebrities showing up to support the Packers for Sunday's playoff game against the Seahawks?
Davis recorded a short video from the Lambeau Field sideline, posted on the Packers' official Twitter account.
The Los Angeles Lakers big man has missed the past two games after suffering a bruised tailbone last week. He traveled with the team but did not play at stops in Dallas on Friday and Oklahoma City on Saturday, and his team is back in action Monday night at home against the Cavaliers, so it's not as if he's just enjoying an off day while the Lakers take a swing through the Midwest. He was joined by Lakers teammates Rajon Rondo and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and got a hug from Aaron Rodgers, who also happens to be a minority investor in the Milwaukee Bucks.
"AD here," Davis said. "Packer gear Lambeau field, Packers-Seahawks. Go Pack go. All the good fans in the background, Pack Nation. We're here to get this win."
Davis, playing in his first year with the Lakers after a trade from New Orleans, remains a potential free agent after the season. So naturally, the first reaction is wondering how deep his Wisconsin sports roots run.
It turns out that Davis, who hails from Chicago, has been a Packers fan for a while, apparently after striking up a friendship with former Green Bay wide receiver Randall Cobb. Both attended the University of Kentucky, though their tenures didn't overlap. Cobb last played football for the Wildcats in the 2010 season, and Davis wasn't on campus until the following year for the 2011-12 campaign. Davis has been on hand to support Cobb before. Although Cobb now plays for the Dallas Cowboys, Davis' Packers fandom is apparently intact.
Speaking of Kentucky and basketball connections, check out the sweet Cream City Bucks jersey sported by Packers defensive lineman Za'Darius Smith, who also played football at UK. It's a No. 8 jersey for Eric Bledsoe, yet another Kentucky alumnus.
And as expected, rapper Lil Wayne is in the house.
