Baron Davis Continues Comeback, With Little Help From Inside The NBA Crew

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Last weekend in New Orleans, I bumped into longtime NBA guard Baron Davis, who was in town for the weekend and had a camera crew following him around. Now we know why, after this video aired last night on “Inside The NBA” showing Baron trying to do some networking while in N’awlins…with mixed results, no thanks to Charles Barkley and Kenny Smith.

Baron Davis Saves The Last Dunk

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — From the funny people at Funny Or Die comes this latest sports-centric video. This one stars Baron Davis in a parody of the recent film Save The Last Dance. According to Wikipedia, in the original, Sean Patrick Thomas and Julia Stiles “work together to help the main character, played by Stiles, train for a dance audition.” In Baron’s version, he teams up with actress Emily Strachan to tell the tale of a guy who teams up with a girl to teach her how to be great at basketball. Only she’s terrible at basketball.

Kevin Durant Dominates At Summer League Game

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — The NBA’s official summer leagues in Orlando and Vegas are mostly populated by either young players or players just hoping to make a regular season roster. When it comes to the NBA’s veterans, they generally skip the organized leagues in favor of making occasional appearances at games in some of the bigger leagues, like the Rucker in NYC or the Drew League in Los Angeles.

Which is exactly what happened yesterday, when Oklahoma City’s Kevin Durant showed up at the Drew League to prove that summer is serious, and he got in a run in a game with several other NBA players, including Metta World Peace, DeShawn Stevenson, Baron Davis and DeMar DeRozan. (Also, rapper The Game was out there getting some run.)

Here’s a long video of highlights from the game…

Durant apparently missed the game winner, but his best play of the day was probably this dunk where he charged down the lane for the throwdown…

NBA Style: Sideline Style Pt. 2

NBA Style

by Baron Davis —

What’s up?! It’s BD again with my second installment of Sideline Style. Last week I looked at the early days of the NBA coaches’ style. Some really nailed it, others not so much. If you missed it, go back and read it here.

Call me Captain Obvious, but I think it’s fair to say that most of the coaches nowadays keep it pretty conservative.  Let’s take a look:

NBA Style: Early Sideline Style

NBA Style

by Baron Davis

What’s going on ya’ll? It’s your boy, BD. The folks at NBA Style asked me to step in and write a piece for the blog, so here I am!

So much has been made of NBA player’s style over the years: What we wear pregame, as we walk through the tunnel, post-game, at the podium…pretty much everywhere. For this post, I decided to run a counter and turn the spotlight on the guys who roam the sidelines and make the adjustments: the coaches.

Just as player style has evolved season-to-season and decade-to-decade, so has that of the League’s coaches. You better believe that like us, some of them have had some style hits and style misses, so there was a lot out there to work with. Let’s take a look through the years: Sideline Style Part 1: The Early Days.

NBA Style: Baron Davis #TBT

NBA Style

by The Style Crew

Baron Davis has always been one of the most stylish players of his generation — after all, there’s a reason we asked Baron to be a member of the Style Crew. From his more formal wear to his off court casual gear, Baron always keeps it fresh and clean. He’s never been afraid to take chances, and he’s always worn tailored clothing that hewed to his physique while showing off his athleticism.
