Two-Time NBA All-Star Baron Davis ‘Serious’ About Comeback Attempt

Back in May of 2012, veteran point guard Baron Davis suffered a cringeworthy knee injury as a member of the New York Knicks. Davis came down the floor on a fastbreak against the Miami Heat and his knee buckled forcing the veteran to the ground.

Ultimately, Davis was taken off the floor on a stretcher and never returned.

A gruesome injury to say the least. One many players in the NBA simply don’t recover from in order to continue their careers, especially after the age of 30. Many believed that Davis was done as an NBA player, but it appears, more than three years later, the UCLA product is serious about a comeback attempt, according to Bleacher Report’s Baron Davis:

At 36, with a long history of injuries, Davis’ chances of finding an NBA team that will take a chance on him is remote. Davis used to be on the most talented point guards in the league. Davis had a fair amount of success during his career making a name for himself with the Hornets and Warriors, but just simply couldn’t stay healthy.

In 15 seasons in the NBA, Davis averaged 16.1 points, 7.2 assists and 3.8 rebounds per game. The journeyman also shot 40.9 percent from the floor and 32.0 from beyond the arc. Davis’ numbers aren’t too shabby, but being injury prone at the ripe old age of 36 isn’t going to convince many teams to starting knocking down his door with job offers.
