Early life

Davis' grandmother and guardian, Lela Nicholson, was instrumental in pushing him to play basketball. With her encouragement, he eventually earned a basketball scholarship to play at Crossroads School, a prestigious private school in Santa Monica, California, where he rubbed elbows with the children of some of California's elite (his classmate was actress Kate Hudson).[4] For other uses, see Santa Monica (disambiguation). ... This article is about the actress. ...


At Crossroads School, the charismatic Davis became a budding star, growing a surprising five inches between his sophomore and junior seasons, going from 5'10" (1.78 m) to 6'3" (1.91 m) in that span.[citation needed] Now able to dunk the basketball, Davis used his trademark explosiveness and skills to rack up numerous honors on the basketball court, including leading his team to the Championship over perennial prep powerhouse Christ The King High School (Queens, New York) at the prestigious Beach Ball Classic tournament in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. While also being named Gatorade Player of the Year and a Parade All-American, perhaps the highlight of his season was his selection to the prestigious McDonald's All-American High School Basketball Game in 1997 (where he won the Slam Dunk Contest despite being the shortest player in the competition), playing with future NBA players Elton Brand, Shane Battier, Larry Hughes and Ron Artest. The summer before his freshman season Baron was selected as a member of the USA Basketball Junior Select Team preparing to compete in the Hoop Summit game. In a 97-90 victory over an International Select Team, he tallied nine points and five assists, with two of his points coming on a coast-to-coast, fast-break dunk in transition, that brought the crowd to its feet.

College career

After a highly contested recruiting battle that saw Kansas, Georgia Tech and UCLA (among other schools) in hot pursuit for his services, Davis selected UCLA as his school of choice, so that he could play in front of his family and friends. During this time, Davis was involved in a minor scandal pertaining to his driving a 1991 Chevy Blazer that was a gift from his sister, then a UCLA employee. The car was sold to her by a member of Jim Harrick's family. At the time, Harrick was the UCLA men's basketball coach, presenting both a conflict of interest and a potential recruiting violation, since rumor had it that the car was purchased below market value. The incident was cleared up when it was discovered that Davis's sister had, in fact, bought the car at the listed blue-book price. Davis then enrolled at UCLA in 1997 without problem. In 1998, Davis was named the Pac-10 Freshman of the Year and made the All-American Third Team by his sophomore year in 1999.[5] The University of Kansas (often referred to as KU or just Kansas) is an institution of higher learning in Lawrence, Kansas. ...

In Davis's two years at UCLA, he averaged 13.6 points and 5.1 assists for the Bruins. While coming down from a dunk during an NCAA Tournament game his freshman year, he injured his knee and tore his Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). Surprisingly, though, he made a full recovery the next season and seemed to have regained nearly all of the speed, quickness, and explosiveness he had before the injury while doing enough on the basketball court to warrant his declaring for the 1999 NBA Draft after his sophomore campaign. The anterior cruciate ligament (or ACL) is one of the four major ligaments of the knee. ...


NBA career

Charlotte/New Orleans Hornets

Davis was the third pick in the 1999 NBA Draft by the Charlotte Hornets. In his NBA debut, a 100-86 win over the Orlando Magic, Baron scored nine points, and added five rebounds, two assists and two steals. In Davis's first year, he backed up Eddie Jones and David Wesley, but by Davis's second year he started all 82 games for the Hornets. Davis would lead Charlotte to the second round of the playoffs in back-to-back years, the first being a sweep of the Miami Heat in the 2001 NBA Playoffs and the next year defeating the Orlando Magic. In the summer of 2002 the Charlotte Hornets moved from Charlotte, North Carolina to New Orleans, Louisiana. Davis would lead the Hornets back to the playoffs, but the next two years were first round exits. Injuries would plague Davis for much of his tenure in New Orleans, although he made the NBA All-Star teams in 2002 and 2004.

After two seasons in which the Warriors underachieved under coach Mike Montgomery, the Warriors hired former coach Don Nelson for the 2006-2007 season. His high scoring offensive system was designed to fit Davis uptempo style. Although Davis suffered through knee soreness and underwent surgery during the season, he still led the Warriors to their first playoffs since 1994. The Warriors swept the regular season series against the Mavericks 3-0 giving them an advantage and won the series against the top seeded Dallas Mavericks 4-2, making them the 1st No. 8 seed to beat a No.1 seed since the NBA changed the 1st round from a 5-game series to a 7-game series. It was numerically the largest upset in the history of the NBA playoffs, with the 67-15 Mavericks having a record of 25 games better than the 42-40 Warriors. Davis averaged 25 points in the series. In the following series, against the Utah Jazz, the Warriors' run ended in 5 games.

Baron Davis's performance in the 2007 NBA Playoffs has drawn praise from basketball analysts and fans alike, with a few claiming Davis to be the best player in the post-season.[7] Davis's playoff highlights included numerous acrobatic layups, a half-court three-pointer at the buzzer, and a memorable dunk over Andrei Kirilenko.[8] In fact, Davis's one-handed jam over Kirilenko occupied half, or five of the top ten plays, on ESPN's SportsCenter that evening. Yet, the Utah Jazz eliminated the undersized Warriors 4 games to 1.[9] Davis averaged 25.3 points, 6.5 assists, 2.9 steals, and 4.5 rebounds per game in the 2007 Playoffs.[10] The 2007 NBA Playoffs was the postseason to the National Basketball Associations 2006-2007 season. ...

After the 2007-2008 season, in which he failed to guide the Warriors to the playoffs, Baron Davis' agent Todd Ramasar claimed that he may opt out of his current contract, that would pay him $17.8 million, to pursue other options.[11] This was seen as an alleged rift was growing between Davis and coach Don Nelson, with Nelson pulling Davis out of one of the last games of the 2007-2008 season while fighting for a playoff spot, due to Davis shooting 2-13 in the first half.[12] On June 30, 2008, Davis opted out of his contract with the Golden State Warriors.[13]


Los Angeles Clippers

On July 1, 2008, Davis verbally agreed to a 5-year, $65 million dollar deal to play for the Los Angeles Clippers. The deal can only become official after July 9, 2008, when the NBA lifts its signing and trade moratorium.[1] His number 5 has to be changed because of future teammate Cuttino Mobley. It has been mentioned that Davis will wear the number 85. Davis grew up on 85th Street in South Los Angeles. Cuttino Rashawn Mobley (born September 1, 1975 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) is an American professional basketball player in the NBA who currently plays for the Los Angeles Clippers. ...


Profile

Davis is an all-purpose point guard who can score, pass and drive the lane. In addition, Baron is one of the more powerful point guards in the league, allowing him to grab and secure rebounds, and then advance up the court. His physical strength, scoring ability, and playmaking skills make him a seldom seen triple-double threat. While Davis is an above-average passer and play maker, he is also seen as a shoot-first type of player, with statistically low shooting percentages and seen as having a poor shot selection.[14] In the last few years, Davis has attempted 7.1 three point shots per game, while only making 32.5% of them. The biggest knock on Davis has been his injury problems, which have caused him to miss 115 games over the last four years — despite not missing a single game his first two seasons. During the 2005-2006 season, Davis was limited to 54 games with several injuries. Despite the injuries he collected nearly 9 assists per game, second best in the NBA. However, Davis managed to stay healthy at the end of the 06-07 season through the Warriors playoff run. His terrific play continued into the 07-08 season, unfortunately as a team they did not make the playoffs. Surprisingly, Davis was able to play every single game during the season.
