He played for the Hornets (when they were originally the Hornets) and for the Warriors (before they were the Warriors we have grown to love)…Yes I’m talking about BD, Baron Davis.
He was a part of some memorable teams. Who can forget the Warriors upset of #1 seed Dallas Mavericks in the 2007 NBA Playoffs? BD also had one of the most ridiculous Playoff dunks of all-time, (See video of Davis Throwdown) and that dunk still makes some top ten dunk lists to this day!
Nevertheless, I recently saw that BD was making a comeback (See Scott Cacciola’s NY Times article) after suffering a horrific career ending injury years ago.
It was a truly depressing ending to an All-Star career.
Nevertheless, I cannot stress how much I admire BD for putting his ego aside and working at a job that is “beneath” him to attempt a return to the NBA.
Although there are no guarantees and a comeback to The League is highly improbable, Davis is back to square one, trying to prove himself.
When you have no alternatives and the chips are down, you truly find out what resolve you have and how to overcome adversity.
BD HAS NO EGO…JUST A DREAM AND A CHANCE TO REDEEM HIMSELF AND GO OUT ON HIS OWN TERMS!
Go get it BD!
