HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: When in doubt, turn back the clock.
Yesterday, the Charlotte Bobcats encouraged Larry Brown to quit as head coach. They’re lost, and owner/executive Michael Jordan knows fans won’t accept another rebuilding project.
So Jordan turned to the past. Former Charlotte Hornets Coach Paul Silas returns to the sideline –at least on an interim basis. This makes sense because Silas is local, living in North Carolina full time.
Bringing back Baron Davis, however, does not make sense.
This isn’t the fresh-faced kid who played in every game for the Charlotte Hornets. This isn’t the fresh-faced kid who was on the verge of becoming a superstar. And this isn’t the fresh-faced kid who bonded with Silas so many years ago.
Davis, at 31, is an over-the-hill, out-of-shape veteran. He doesn’t love the game anymore; the passion is gone. He is now more interested in making movies than winning games for the Clippers.
Re-acquiring Davis is a nice thought. He can’t go home, though. Hopefully, Jordan’s Bobcats don’t extend an invite.
