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.
Comeback for Baron Davis? He's working out, giving it a shot though source acknowledges it's a "longshot." Tore MCL and ACL in '12 playoffs.

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.
