Anthony Davis' Family 'Disappointed' Bobcats Did Not Win NBA Lottery

Coming off a season in which Charlotte set a new mark for the worst winning percentage in NBA history, one might think Anthony Davis and his family exhaled when the Bobcats logo was unveiled behind lottery envelope No. 2. But in an interview with "The Dan Patrick Show" on Thursday, the consensus No. 1 pick indicated that members of his family were actually disappointed that Charlotte did not win the lottery. The Kentucky center spent his childhood in Chicago idolizing Michael Jordan with family and friends, and they were also apparently hoping for a chance to relocate to the Charlotte area.

Via Rick Bonnell of The Charlotte Observer:

"A lot of disappointment inside my family. My mom wanted me to go to Charlotte. I have a lot of good friends in Charlotte,'' Davis said during an appearance on the Dan Patrick radio show.

"At the same time, it wasn't my call. A lot of guys are disappointed, but they have to move on and make the best out of New Orleans.''

Davis seemed to be speaking more on behalf of his family in the interview, but it's still pretty remarkable to hear him candidly talk about their preference for Charlotte. I suppose there's some small consolation in that ... right, Bobcats fans?
