Anthony Davis Didn't Play in the First Half of Game Against Nigeria Because He Forgot to Wear His Jersey

Anthony Davis Didn't Play in the First Half of Game Against Nigeria Because He Forgot to Wear His Jersey

At the end of the 1st quarter, the United States men's basketball team led 49-25 over Nigeria and looked like they well on their way to an easy victory. With a comfortable lead, head coach Mike Krzyzewski decided to bring in Anthony Davis during the second quarter, so he could eat up some substantial minutes on the court. As Davis approached the scorer's table to come into the game, the 19-year-old realized he was missing his jersey. 

After coming to this realization, Davis immediately went back to the bench where the rest of his teammates couldn't stop laughing the unibrowed one's mental lapse. Apparently, Davis just forgot to put on the jersey after warm-ups. However, NBC analyst Doug Collins believes that the older members of Team USA pulled a prank on AD by hiding his jersey before the start of the game. Either way, there's a "stay in school" message somewhere in this story.
