HoopsHype Baron Davis rumors

October 17, 2014 Updates

Blake Griffin: As Baron is lining up, Sterling started flapping his arms and yelled to no one in particular, “Why are you letting him shoot the free throw? He’s awful! He’s terrible! He’s the worst free throw shooter ever!” Baron had been shooting like 87 percent that season. He was by far our best free throw shooter on the floor. I was standing at half court, right next to Sterling’s seats, watching this out of the corner of my eye, trying not to laugh. I looked at the guys on the other team, like, I cannot believe this is happening right now. The Players' Tribune

He is 35 now and hasn’t played in a game in more than two years, but Baron Davis insists he’s serious about a comeback in the NBA. Davis is in Las Vegas for summer league, just as he is every year. Only now, the former Cavs guard is looking for a job. Davis tore the ACL and MCL in his right knee during the New York Knicks’ playoff series against the Miami Heat two years ago. He’s still not 100 percent, labeling his health “somewhere in the 80s,” but believes he can contribute to a team and said he’d love to return to Cleveland. “Cleveland always has a special place in my heart because when I got traded there, people doubted whether I’d ever play and those fans embraced me and the organization embraced me,” Davis said. “At that time, I needed Cleveland more than Cleveland needed me.” Akron Beacon Journal

Sterling’s antics were obvious and he didn’t hide even from the stars of his team: “Baron was actually trying to chatter, get some time with him one on one, but he would never want to talk with Baron. It wasn’t like it is now, it wasn’t to this extent, we were able to be there, trying to play to the best of our abilities, but at the same time it was hard, because Baron had a hard time playing for that man, knowing what he do”.

In the meantime, Davis' No. 1 focus is making a return to the NBA, and he's been training in Vancouver with Steve Nash at times. Davis hasn't played since May 2012, when, during the first round of the playoffs, he suffered a partial tear of the patella tendon in his right knee and complete tears of the right anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments. "I still want to see where I stand and chase that dream, especially the way I went out on that injury," said Davis, who's been chronicling his comeback trail in a mockumentary series on TNT. "I want to just get back to playing a little bit. I definitely want to get back on the court and conquer that." Bleacher Report

Davis, who also makes occasional NBA TV appearances, said there is "no real timetable" yet for playing again. "I'm just going through the process, man," he said. "I think that's the most important thing." Bleacher Report

Some day, Davis hopes to have a more personal rooting interest in the awards show. He already is more involved in the film industry than any of his contemporaries in the NBA. Since 2002, he's been working on film projects, and he's currently writing his first script for a potential Christmas completion, a basketball title that he says is like "Boyz n the Hood meets He Got Game." "Maybe it'll be Oscar-worthy," he said, laughing, "but hopefully it'll be something that will give me the respect that I'm just looking for." Bleacher Report

It's been some time since we've had Baron Davis in our lives, and that is unfortunate because Baron Davis is awesome. Here Davis teams up with Steve Nash in a video detailing his "efforts" to return to the NBA. You will laugh at this. This could have ended up being very dumb, but Nash and Davis possess enough charisma and comedic timing to make it work. And thanks to Davis, we now have a new term to describe guys like Zach Randolph: "Dominant fat." Deadspin.com

Baron Davis has a new play in mind: TV host. Swinging by Tuesday's episode of Chelsea Lately, the NBA star dished with Chelsea Handler about How I Rock It, the new men's style show he's emceeing for Esquire. "It's a men's style show," the 34-year-old Davis told the funny lady. "It's like taking trendsetters and people like that and showing them in their daily life. The things that they like to do instead of so much like the clothes that they wear. So it's just like taking it a level deep and like getting inside their personality." Eonline.com

I believe the same, furthermore, for Jackson and Davis -- who I hear is working steadfastly toward a second-half comeback of his own -- and that's based on the same premise as my Odom take. Teams will roll the dice on guys who have the resume and know-how that suggest they can make a difference. ESPN.com

Who would make your “Dream Team” when it comes to the league’s top dressers? Baron Davis: I would say Tyson Chandler and Russell Westbrook. Those would kind of be my two fashionistas. I would go with LeBron as far as that gentleman prepster meets street culture. I like James Harden, he has an original look. And probably Dwyane Wade, because Dwyane Wade, he’s the one guy who kind of actually started the whole trend of really thinking outside the box. uptownmagazine.com
