At 37-years-old, Baron Davis is still looking at an NBA comeback
Once upon a time, Baron Davis was heralded as among the league’s best point guards.
The combination of size and strength at the one position was too much for opposing guards. Davis became most popular for piloting the Golden State Warriors to an upset over a 67-win Dallas Mavericks team in 2007.
Now, at 37-years-old, Baron Davis is still aiming for an NBA comeback, per Jesse Dougherty of the Los Angeles Times.
“I just feel like I have something left to give. When I don’t, I’ll hang it up and stay away for good. But right now there’s something there.”
He last played in 2011-2012 for the New York Knicks, where he averaged 6.1 points, 4.7 assists, and 1.2 steals in 20 minutes per game.
Four years is a long time to be away from NBA-level action, especially for his age, but if his performance in the D-League last season, where he normed 12.8 points in only 22 minutes a night, is any indication of the gas that’s left in his tank, he might be worth a training camp invite at least.
