Baron Davis Considering Comeback

When Baron Davis was stretchered off the court in game four of the 2012 NBA playoffs against the Miami Heat, many thought that they had seen the end of a great career. After all, Davis tore his ACL, MCL and suffered a partial patella tendon tear. His knee was completely destroyed. But Davis seems keen on giving the NBA another shot.

Davis realizes that it’s a longshot, but he seems to miss the game and is not ready to call it a career just yet.

Even before the devastating injury, Davis was not the player he once was, especially playing in a reduced role with the New York Knicks. Considering the severity of his injury and his age, it’s hard to imagine Davis coming back and being effective, even in a backup role. However, if he is able to get healthy enough, he obviously has more than enough experience to help out a championship contender.
