Case in point: former Cavaliers guard Baron Davis, now 37 years old and more than four years removed from his last NBA game, is known to covet the job and insists he could do it well so long as he had two weeks to get into tip-top shape (he played six games in the NBA Development League last season, averaging 12.8 points, 3.5 assists and 22.5 minutes. Also, fellow former Cleveland player Andre Miller, the 40-year-old who played in Minnesota (26 games) and San Antonio (13 games) last season, would certainly want this gig but has thus far inspired no mutual interest.
Ex-NBA player Stephen Jackson appeared on Michael Rapaport’s podcast “I AM RAPAPORT” and shared some of his best stories involving former Golden State Warriors coach Don Nelson and mind-altering substances. First, he described Nelson inviting him and Baron Davis to a bar a couple of days before the start of a season — presumably 2007-08 — and the three of them getting “wasted” on Macallan. Jackson had never drank scotch before, and said this created a bond between him and Nelson.
“This is crazy, nobody knows this story, so this is the first time somebody is hearing this story,” Jackson said. “We’re in Utah and the drug test people are around, you know, to get our last drug test, so we can smoke, right? And Don Nelson, we talked about weed all the time, he was cool with talking about weed. We got our last test in Utah, right? So me and Baron [Davis] are coming out the locker room just screaming, excited, right, with our last pink slip saying we could smoke for the rest of the season. And Don Nelson hauls ass down there giving us high-fives like, ‘Yeah, we can smoke now!’ It was cool, the fact that he knows what’s going on off the court with his players, which was great, man. We enjoyed it. And that’s why we were a great team.”
Freshman sensation Lonzo Ball wasted no time taking college hoops by storm … and now former UCLA star Baron Davis is showing a LOT of love for the young hooper … proclaiming Ball a future NBA All-Star. TMZ Sports spoke with B.D. about the freshman phenom — who leads the NCAA in assists (9 per game) as a freshman — and it’s clear Baron expects nothing but greatness. “He will definitely be a UCLA Hall of Famer,” Davis says. “He’s following right after Russ (Westbrook) and all the rest of the great point guards.”
