Good Luck to Bruin Great Baron Davis (Down w Serious Knee Injury)

Bumped. Good luck Baron. Go Bruins. - BN Eds.

Well, for anyone who watched Baron blow out his knee the other day, you can't help think what could have been for the stud out of Crossroads High School. Boy was he something to watch in High School. He came to UCLA with much promise and for two years was a joy to watch play the game:


His knee injury the other day was simply horrible, and I know all Bruins wish him the best in his recovery. While he is probably done playing, he leaves many lasting memories. Even though his NBA career may have come up short in many people's eyes, I will always think of Baron as a great Bruin!!

There is a very good article on Baron, which is worth the read where the writer basically states that Baron was the most athletic point guard of all time:

[W]e have probably seen the last of Baron Davis in the NBA. With that in mind, forgive me if the rest of this post sounds like a discarded verse from the Skid Row track "I Remember You" - from the day he first suited up for UCLA in 1997 to his last season with the Golden State Warriors in 2008, Davis was my favorite basketball player. While his career was near its end anyway, and he was unlikely to be any more than an adequate backup for several more seasons, it's still sad to say goodbye.

As a freshman at UCLA, Baron was the most athletic point guard of all time (yes, greater than Derrick Rose). He blew out his knee in the NCAA tournament later that season, but he returned as a sophomore nearly fully recovered and came through with some of the greatest highlights you'll ever see on a college basketball court. He struggled with turnovers and fouls, but there were few prospects more exciting. If you don't believe me, just watch this video.

Check out the full piece here.

Good Luck Baron!
