NBA Star Baron Davis Says He Was Abducted By Aliens

NBA Star Baron Davis Says He Was Abducted By AliensAliens once stole Baron Davis for a brief examination. At least, that is what the former NBA star had to say in an interview with Neal Brennan and Moshe Kasher for The Champs podcast, via Deadspin.

‘Crazy looking people’

Davis states that he was driving back from Las Vegas when he saw a bright light and was suddenly being poked and prodded by these “crazy looking people,” which probably doesn’t go over well with his former hosts. Finally, he realizes he is in Montebello, California, not knowing why he is there, which is precisely the feeling anyone has when driving through Montebello.  Thankfully, there was an In-N-Out nearby to calm his nerves.

Now, as Yahoo! Sports notes, he does temper the story a bit:

Eventually, Baron backed off his “abduction” stance, but only because that sounds like too pejorative a phrase.

“I don’t think it was an abduction, dude — I think that they were, like … because now, like, I come back and, like, I’m, like, sharper and [expletive], you know what I mean?” Davis said. “Like, I’m retaining information.”

‘Fallen asleep’

While I am sure all of us believe Davis was no doubt beamed into space or some other dimension, there is a tiny part of me that thinks he may have just fallen asleep, which is just as scary considering the dark and windy roads. But let’s ditch the speculation, because buying into the story wholeheartedly is far more fun.

If movies like Independence Day taught us anything, it’s that aliens come here looking to study our weaknesses—like NBA stars breaking down game tape.

Jeremy Lin’s Knee Surgery May Suspend Lin-sanity for 6 Weeks

Jeremy Lin will miss the rest of the regular season because he needs knee surgery that will sideline him six weeks and could leave the Knicks without their star point guard in the playoffs – if they make it that far. Lin had an MRI exam this week that revealed a small, chronic meniscus tear and he has elected to have surgery next week in New York.

Speaking slowly during a pregame press conference, Lin was unable to hide his disappointment with the decision that was reached earlier Saturday after a painful workout.

“It (stinks) not being able to be out there with the team,” he said. Later, he updated his Facebook page with the message: “Thanks for all the love! (I’ll) return from this surgery stronger and better than before … and hopefully in time for the playoffs!”

The Knicks will continue to turn to Baron Davis in place of Lin, the undrafted Harvard alum who became the starter in February and turned in a series of brilliant performances, kicking off a phenomenon that was called Linsanity. Lin is averaging 14.1 points and 6.1 assists, but the numbers only tell a small part of the story.

He was the first player with at least 20 points and seven assists in each of his first five starts since the Elias Sports Bureau began charting starts in 1970. He had a 3-pointer to win a game in Toronto, scored 38 points to outplay Kobe Bryant in a national TV victory over the Lakers, then had 28 points and 14 assists in another nationally televised victory over the NBA champion Dallas Mavericks.
