Former NBA All-Star Baron Davis always came off as a loon. The quirky style of dress was always a tip-off plus any player who’s clearly talented but skips across multiple teams in a career is usually a cancer or some of the meat fell off their taco. Yet, I only thought that about Davis without any concrete support. Now, I’ve found one piece of evidence to bolster my hypothesis.
Davis recently appeared on The Champs, a podcast hosted by comedians Neal Brennan and Moshe Kasher, and briefly shared a story about the time he was abducted by aliens while on a late night drive from Las Vegas to Los Angeles. He doesn’t give a full explanation of it all and the story ends with him eating burgers at In ‘N Out while trying to process what all happened to him.
His close encounter did prove to be beneficial to Baron in one way. As he puts it, “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 shit, you know what I mean? Like, I’m retaining information.”
Sure, Baron, we fully understand.
Here’s an old saying that Baron and anyone in his predicament should always remember – “Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.”
I have no doubts anymore, Baron.
