Warriors get trolled by Athletics after Khris Davis extension

The Oakland Athletics are keeping slugger Khris Davis around for at least two more seasons. The team agreed to a two-year, $33.5 million extension with Davis on Thursday.

Locking players up is something that deserves to be celebrated, so it’s no surprise the A’s took out a full-page newspaper ad announcing the signing. The team’s decision to poke fun at the Golden State Warriors in that ad, however, was a bit unexpected.

The ad read, “KD commits to Oakland.” The team used the same phrase in the press release announcing Davis’ extension, so they were obviously referring to Khris Davis and not the other KD in town.

Remember when it felt like abuse to take cheap shots at the Warriors, instead of the exact opposite?
