Baron Davis

  1. Lakers cruise to another win as nobody talked about the game

    Nov 12, 2012, 1:13 AM EDT

    Pau Gasol, Francisco Garcia

    What were people talking about at Staples Center Sunday night? Phil Jackson. Is he coming to the Lakers in the next 24 hours? Does he really want the job? How does he implement the triangle with Steve Nash and no training camp? You know the fans want him because midway through the second quarter they…

  2. Video: Stoudemire, Granger, Davis on “The Mindy Project”

    Oct 12, 2012, 11:19 AM EDT

    Mindy-Kaling-of-FOXs-The-Mindy-Project

    “The Mindy Project” — it’s not just that show on after “New Girl.” It stars that girl from “The Office.” Yea, Mindy Kaling, that’s her. This week’s episode featured NBA players Amar’e Stoudemire, Baron Davis and Danny Granger hanging out in a club. You need to really skip ahead to the 3:00 mark to get to…

  3. Friday And-1 links: Kobe misses practice, other camp notes

    Oct 5, 2012, 9:26 PM EDT

    Lakers guard Kobe Bryant smiles during an interview at NBA media day for the Los Angeles Lakers basketball team in Los Angeles

  4. Tyson Chandler hosted art exhibit of his own works in NYC

    Sep 28, 2012, 8:18 AM EDT

    tyson-chandler-jason-kidd-michael-strahan-exhibit

    Sometimes fans ask me why players want to go to Los Angeles or New York instead of fine cities like Houston or Milwaukee. It’s because of the opportunities. Like teaching Ellen to Dougie. It’s because if you are Tyson Chandler playing for the Knicks, you can host a charity exhibit of your own art work…

  5. Baron Davis to have number of off-court roles with Knicks

    Sep 24, 2012, 8:01 AM EDT

    baron davis

    Baron Davis doesn’t want to be done playing, he wants to keep working out to get back on the court following his major knee surgery (which followed a terrible knee injury in last year’s playoffs). But that’s going to take a year, at least. In the mean time, he’s going to have some off the…

  6. NBA Season Preview: New York Knicks

    Sep 18, 2012, 12:05 PM EDT

    Knicks' Anthony celebrates after a three point shot late in the fourth quarter of the Knicks' win in Game 4 of their NBA Eastern Conference basketball playoff series against the Heat in New York

    This week begins PBT’s team-by-team season preview, going through all 30 squads. We are starting in the deep Atlantic Division that could well send four teams to the playoffs, and we will move West from there. Next up, your New York Knicks. Last season: Good God, where to begin. Uh, they beat Boston in their first…

  7. The Inbounds: Why players and their agents should consider a franchise’s spending history in free agency decisions

    Sep 17, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    New York Knicks Carmelo Anthony, Amar'e Stoudemire, and Tyson Chandler react to a call in the second half of their NBA basketball game against the Boston Celtics at TD Garden in Boston

    Two and a half weeks ago, Business Week released a study on the “smartest spenders in the NBA.” Kurt talked about the top and bottom ten here. It’s nothing shocking. The Lakers spend really well! The Wizards and Kings spend really badly! Turns out there’s a high correlation between “being a really good team” and…

  8. There’s going to be another NBA-player-heavy rap album. Make room for the Grammies.

    Sep 2, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks Josh Smith reacts during the final moments of the fourth quarter of Game 6 of their NBA Eastern Conference playoff basketball series against the Boston Celtics in Boston

    Yesterday we shared with you how Juwan Howard was making his rap album. It would appear that he is not alone in this endeavor. IAmAGM.com reports on a new album that dare we say brings back memories of “B-Ball’s Best Kept Secret.” The rap album is titled, “Full Court Press Vol. 1.” NBA players that…

  9. Baron Davis to remain with Knicks “in some capacity”

    Aug 24, 2012, 12:55 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v New York Knicks - Game Three

    What Baron Davis wants to do is get back on the court and play again. But at age 33 he tore his ACL and MCL, which is hard to come back from for anyone. And let’s be honest here, Davis’ history of diligently sticking with his injury rehab is not exactly stellar. Davis is working…

  10. Baron Davis keeps saying he wants to be back for next season

    Aug 15, 2012, 7:57 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v New York Knicks - Game Three

    NBA players in their 30s who tear both their ACL and MCL don’t often make a comeback. Those that do tend to have been the fittest of players, ones known for committing to and sticking with their rehab efforts. So, there are a couple strikes against Baron Davis coming back to the NBA. But he…

  11. Video: Baron Davis’ British alter ego interviews himself

    Aug 7, 2012, 8:14 AM EDT

    Baron Davis, Jason Richardson, Corey Maggette

    Baron Davis is having a lot of fun during the Olympics making videos with his English alter ego Brian Davies, so he decided to interview himself. With such questions as “Who wins a race between Michael Phelps and a hammerhead shark?” Enjoy. It’s only Tuesday, so you could use a laugh to start off your…

  12. Video: Baron Davis, Swin Cash debate men’s vs. women’s basketball

    Aug 2, 2012, 10:00 PM EDT

    Baron Davis, Jason Richardson, Corey Maggette

    I’m going to miss Baron Davis when he is out of the league. Not so much Baron Davis the player capable of lighting up an arena like few others of his era, that Davis has been gone for a while now. I’ve come to peace with it. But Davis the guy who puts together amusing…

  13. Check out Baron Davis’ new video game “Getting Buckets”

    Aug 2, 2012, 1:01 PM EDT

    baron davis

    That, my friends, is the trailer for “Getting Buckets,” the new mobile video game Baron Davis has helped produce. And by helped I don’t mean “sat at a laptop and pounded out code” I mean more like he tried to do the big picture stuff. He’s an idea man. But he was in on this…

  14. Winderman: Lin’s offer sheet not problem, Knicks entire payroll is

    Jul 16, 2012, 2:25 PM EDT

    New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin and Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony looks on against the Atlanta Hawks in the second quarter of their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York

    This is where many get the NBA luxury tax wrong: The third year on the offer sheet extended by the Rockets to Jeremy Lin will not cost the Knicks $43 million when factoring in the luxury tax, as some have extrapolated. It will cost the Knicks the $15 million on the third year of that…

  15. NBA Summer League’s second day features plethora of solid performances

    Jul 15, 2012, 12:26 AM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Memphis Grizzlies

    LAS VEGAS — The second day of NBA Summer League featured pretty the same things as the first — random cameos in the crowd by established NBA like Baron Davis, J.R. Smith and David Lee; a lot of less than stellar basketball interspersed with jaw-dropping highlights and 32 quarters of players most of the crowd…

  16. Baron Davis: “I am coming back.”

    Jun 27, 2012, 5:09 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v New York Knicks - Game Three

    Baron Davis has a long, long road back. He tore his ACL and his MCL — that’s hard to bounce back from if you are 23, not 33 like Davis. And Davis’ reputation has not been that of a guy who worked hard at his rehab or through the off-season to keep in top condition…

  17. Video: Baron Davis in “The Battle for Boom Garden”

    Jun 22, 2012, 9:00 PM EDT

    I present this without comment because… I don’t know what to say. It’s Baron Davis. At his most Baron Davisness. And it’s a good way to start the weekend. I guess.

  19. NBA Playoffs: 76ers hold on, end Chicago’s season

    May 10, 2012, 10:30 PM EDT

    Boozer Attempt

    Normally, when an 8-seed upsets a 1-seed, like the Golden State Warriors did in 2007 or the Memphis Grizzlies did last year, NBA fans are generally thrilled for an underdog team that beat the odds and prevailed. This time, however, it’s hard to feel anything but a sense of melancholy for the Chicago Bulls, who…

  20. Reiterating what we already knew, Lin out for Heat series

    May 8, 2012, 3:01 PM EDT

    Injured New York Knicks guard Jeremy Lin reacts during pregame ceremonies before the Knicks play against the Miami Heat in Game 2 of their first round NBA Eastern Conference basketball playoffs in Miami

    Yesterday, Knicks coach Mike Woodson said Jeremy Lin was very doubtful for Game 5 and it looked like some of the point guard duties for the Knicks would fall to Carmelo Anthony. And some to Mike Bibby. So of course, Woodson had to be asked about it again on Tuesday, and this time he tried…

  21. Baron Davis has torn ACL and MCL, this may be it for him

    May 7, 2012, 5:42 PM EDT

    Baron Davis Warriors

    There were times when Baron Davis was as good a playmaker, as entertaining a point guard in the NBA — remember how he played when he led Golden State to the first-round upset of the Dallas Mavericks in 2007? He had the gift of court vision, and even in his frustrating later years on the…

  22. Jeremy Lin not looking likely for Game 5, so Melo at point?

    May 7, 2012, 12:06 PM EDT

    Injured New York Knicks guard Jeremy Lin reacts during pregame ceremonies before the Knicks play against the Miami Heat in Game 2 of their first round NBA Eastern Conference basketball playoffs in Miami

    With Baron Davis out, “Jeremy Lin Watch 2012” is on in full force for the Knicks as they head into Game 5 in Miami Wednesday. Lin has been working out, but when coach Mike Woodson spoke with reporters Monday it didn’t sound like Lin would play, but since his other option is Bibby Woodson was…

  23. With Baron Davis out, can Jeremy Lin return to help Knicks?

    May 7, 2012, 8:31 AM EDT

    Knicks' Davis grabs his right knee after an injury in Game 4 of their NBA Eastern Conference basketball playoff series against the Heat in New York

    When Baron Davis went down it looked bad. The video of the injury is at the bottom of this post but don’t watch it if you are squeamish. Davis suffered a dislocated kneecap. He’s done for these playoffs and frankly this could be the sad end to his career (he will be 33 next season…

  24. Knicks get measure of redemption, knock off Heat in Game 5

    May 6, 2012, 8:08 PM EDT

    Knicks' Anthony celebrates after a three point shot late in the fourth quarter of the Knicks' win in Game 4 of their NBA Eastern Conference basketball playoff series against the Heat in New York

    It doesn’t change the big picture – the Heat are still going to win this series and there are still questions about the construction and future of the Knicks. But for a day the Knicks got a measure of redemption — the Knicks made the big plays late, Carmelo Anthony outplayed LeBron James, the Knicks…
