March 5, 2014 Updates

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

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

Former Cavaliers' guard Baron Davis told the hosts of "The Champs" podcast he was inducted by aliens in the desert while driving from Las Vegas to L.A. two weeks ago. "I'm a little tired and see this light and I think it's a big truck," Davis said. "The next thing you know I was like in this big steel thing...with these crazy looking half-human people." Sounds ridiculous, but maybe he nodded off. Maybe the big steel thing was Madison Square Garden and one of the big-eyed beings poking at Davis was Spike Lee? The hosts weren't sure what to make of his story, twice asking him if he were serious. Cleveland Plain Dealer

“The Champs” hosts Neal Brennan and Moshe Kasher pushed Baron on the story, telling him, “We don’t know if you’re being serious or not.” “They were poking me on my nose and they were, like, looking me in my eyes,” Baron responded. “They had my hands like, tied up and the next thing you know, I was f***ing in Montebello, dude, burning rubber on the way back to LA. It was like four o’clock in the morning.” The NBA star finished his story explaining how the experience — or whatever you wanna call it — changed him: “I come back and I’m like, sharper and s**t. I’m retaining information.” hollywoodlife.com

A source with knowledge of Davis’ plans told Sporting News that Davis is, indeed, working out in the Los Angeles area with eyes on a comeback. But the source conceded that Davis, who now is 34, is still a “longshot” to actually take the floor in the NBA again. In the wake of his injury, Davis had vowed to come back and play again. But just how much demand there will be for a player his age who had trouble staying on the court even before the injury (Davis struggled with the Knicks as he returned from a bulging disc problem in his back) is questionable.
