The recovery following Davis’ last knee injury rejuvenated his body and his hopes of returning to the NBA. “It’s what’s inside that keeps me wanting to be on the court,” Davis said. “I’m blessed to be able to play this game. It’s just a thing that keeps ticking in me.” His latest hoop dream is to play a few more years. Then he’ll retire as a player. “Now I’m the old man,” Davis said. “In my mind, I still feel like I’m a kid. My body’s like, ‘No way, kid.'”
Immaturity and selfishness surely hurt Davis’ chances of another contract, but he said it was his health that ultimately pushed him out of the league in 2010. Davis said he played that season with an undiagnosed tear in his left patellar tendon—an injury the Clippers had classified merely as tendinitis. (A team spokesman declined to comment on Davis’ assertion.) Davis was averaging just 4.4 points per game when he was waived, a damning stat for a single-minded scorer who once averaged 20.6 points for the Cavaliers.
