When Bradley Beal was heckled by a fan earlier this week, he had the perfect reaction.
It completely defused the situation, disarmed the fan who almost immediately backtracked, and made millions of people laugh when it went viral.
Meanwhile in New Orleans, Anthony Davis handled his most recent heckling situation slightly differently.
That speaks volumes of the different places Beal and Davis are at mentally.
Davis is stuck in New Orleans, the city he publicly demanded to leave more than two months ago, and the ill will on both sides is palpable.
This was always going to end badly.
For the Pelicans, none of it matters so long as waiting it out leads them to the best possible trade.
