Baron Davis’ NSFW revelation why he initially hated being traded to Warriors

Aside from Stephen Curry, it could be argued that Baron Davis is the most iconic Golden State Warriors player in the last three decades. Davis truly revitalized the erstwhile languishing Warriors, culminating in the inspired run of the “We Believe” crew.

Davis recently reunited with two other members of that memorable squad, joining Matt Barnes and Stephen Jackson on their All The Smoke podcast. Boom Dizzle, however, made a startling revelation that he originally didn’t want to play for the Warriors (via NBC Sports Bay Area).

“One, I did not want to go to Golden State, because at one point, it was like, LA dudes and Bay dudes, the stereotype is like, we didn’t f**k with each other. It was always like a rivalry from Cal and all that, but I’d always had good games at Golden State.”

Davis’ initial apprehensions, however, quickly dissipated once he joined the Warriors. He immediately became the face of the team as coach Don Nelson handed him the keys. Teaming with the likes of Jackson, Barnes, Monta Ellis, Jason Richardson, Al Harrington, and Andris Biedrins, they transformed the Warriors into of the most exciting teams in the NBA.

Davis, a two-time All-Star was shipped to the Warriors by the New Orleans Hornets in a midseason trade in 2005. In exchange for Too Easy, the Warriors gave up Speedy Claxton and Dale Davis. In 227 games with the squad, Davis put up 20.1 points, 8.1 assists, and 4.4 rebounds per game.

It’s a good thing that Baron Davis quickly embraced playing for the Warriors. Not a good thing for Andrei Kirilenko though.
