If you have been following the NBA first round playoff series, you know that former bruin Baron Davis is on fire. He is playing his best basketball of his career and has led the Golden State Warriors in taking a 3-1 series lead. One more win will eliminate the Mavericks from the playoffs. The team also features former bruin Matt Barnes who has also been surprising everyone with his performance all year. Could you imagine what kind of teams we could have had here in Westwood if we had a decent coach who would have utilized the ability and basketball talent of someone like Baron Davis? Instead we had a gas bag like Steve Lavin who squandered Davis' potential and had the team play pickup style street ball. Imagine Ben Howland having a player like Baron at the point. Wow!
I am hoping for golden state to advance to second round and then go on to win the NBA championship. That will certainly put the spotlight on our former bruins and UCLA as a result. Baron Davis has the potential to be one of the greatest NBA players. Unfortunately he has been plaqued by multiple injuries in his career.
Let's put the whole Bruin Nation Karma behind them
now that college basketball season is over. Go bruins, go Baron Davis.
