At one point and time, Baron Davis was an All-Star point guard in the NBA and there was an ongoing comparison between fans wondering who was the better player between he and Chris Paul. Averaging nearly 23 points a game for the New Orleans Hornets (now Pelicans), Davis looked to be destined for stardom.
But things eventually took a turn for the worse in the latter portion of Baron Davis’ career as he dealt with a multitude of injuries which forced him from the game. A 13-year veteran, Davis last played for the New York Knicks during the 2011-12 season though only managed to get through 29 games. Still, there have been rumors about a potential comeback for months now and the point guard confirmed as much today with Jared Zwerling breaking the news.
Given it’s been nearly four years since Baron Davis had a productive season on an NBA court expectations have to be rather low, though it’s still going to be pretty awesome to see him return to the league if he’s given a chance.
Who exactly will have interest in the point guard is another story. Normally, guys who’ve missed so much time aren’t of much interest to teams but point guard is always a position of need and at 34, it’s likely he still has a bit of run in his knees.
There hasn’t been any team linked to Davis at this point, though you’d have to think a contender in need of an additional guard might explore the idea.
