Local product and No. 1 overall draft pick Anthony Davis missed his rookie season's lone homecoming game after suffering a mild concussion Friday night.

Hornets coach Monty Williams released enough frustration for both of them, taking aim at the NBA's concussion policy.

"What's happening in football has impacted everybody," Williams said. "He got touched up a little bit. That happens a lot in basketball. It's just that now we treat everybody like they have on white gloves and pink drawers. It's getting old. But it's just the way the league is now."

Williams also said "it's a man's game and we're treating these guys like they're 5 years old" before backtracking. He even poked fun at himself, saying he's "a baby about it" because he wanted his full complement of players.
