When you’re 6’11”, 254lbs, and battling the biggest and baddest dudes in the NBA night in and night out, it doesn’t seem like much would scare you—unless, of course, it’s a dark, old haunted house infested with zombies and chainsaw-weilding psychos.
Apparently, that’s one of the few things that can really put a fright into New Orleans Pelicans big man Anthony Davis. Yet, for some reason, he chose to face his fears and walk the gauntlet of bloodthirsty ghouls in a Tickfaw, LA, haunted house. To make things a little less terrifying, Davis was accompanied by a few teammates who would surely have his back, including the team’s enforcer, DeMarcus Cousins.
Well, after watching the video below released by NBA All-Star Davis, it looked like it was every man for himself.

On most nights throughout the basketball season, it’s Davis and Cousins doing the intimidating. On this eerie evening, however, the beasts of the hardcourt were the ones fearing for their well-being.
Others whose hearts might be racing after watching the clip: Pelicans owner Tom Benson and head coach Alvin Gentry. Seeing your multi-million dollar, marquee players risk potential injuries as they sprint down dark corridors can be more terrifying than any haunted house.
