Baron Davis ‘stopped liking basketball’ with Clippers
And the other lowest point is when I played for the Clippers. … I just stopped liking basketball. And then you dribbling down the court and having the owner like cuss at you and call you an idiot. I didn’t even look forward to coming to the games, and if the owner [Donald Sterling] came to the game, I definitely was not gonna have a good game because it was just like, how do you play when the main heckler in the gym is the owner of the team, and he’s telling you how much he hates you and calling out your name?
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: I have little sympathy for Baron Davis, the talented but temperamental point guard for the New York Knicks.
After all, Davis had a choice, and choose the Los Angeles Clippers because they offered the most money – signing a five-year, $65 million pact as a free agent.
And Davis, being a Los Angeles native, knew the deal. He knew the Clippers were a second-rate outfit with owner Donald Sterling and a curse Cub fans can relate to.
Yet Davis took the money -and ran. He never tried to transcend his situation, showing up out-of-shape and feuding with coaches. In fact, Davis seemed more interested in pursuing a career in show biz producing movies than helping the Clippers.
Instead of blaming others, Davis should focus on salvaging the remains of his career.
