Lakers' Anthony Davis expects 'crazy' homecoming

LOS ANGELES — Anthony Davis shook his head and shivered.

The Lakers’ forward got chills when asked how he would handle the frigid climate in Chicago for NBA All-Star weekend. He also wondered how he would manage an extended homecoming trip.

“I’m pretty sure it’s going to be crazy going back home. I’ll have a lot going on,” Davis told USA TODAY Sports. “It’s going to be insane. It’s going to be cold. And it’s going to be fun. I’m excited to come back home to see fans, friends and family.”

Not to mention the jam-packed itinerary, which starts Thursday and doesn’t stop until after the buzzer of Sunday’s All-Star Game at the United Center, where Davis’ idol Michael Jordan helped bring six NBA titles to the Windy City.

There are no Chicago Bulls players participating in Sunday’s game. Detroit Pistons guard Derrick Rose, a Chicago native, dropped out of Saturday’s skills competition after reporting an abductor strain. So that leaves Davis as the unofficial host in his seventh appearance in the NBA’s biggest weekend.
