Former NBA All-Star guard Baron Davis last played for the New York Knicks in 2012, but ever since he has had a lot more time on his hands.
And apparently that has left him open for alien abduction. As first reported by Deadspin, Davis described his alleged abduction on an episode of comedy podcast “The Champs.” Two weeks ago, Davis was driving between Las Vegas and Los Angeles, and he claimed he saw what he believed to be a bright light coming from a truck.
Davis said that the next thing he knew he was in some “steel thing” and was surrounded by “crazy-looking people” that were half-human and “half-ugly-m*****f****s)”. Davis said these “aliens” poked him in the nose, were looking at him in his eyes, and even had his hands tied.
Hosts and comedians Neal Brennan and Moshe Kasher asked Davis if he was serious, to which he said he was telling the truth. Davis then said he sped away in his car somehow, and stopped at an In-N-Out Burger restaurant.
Davis also mentioned the Illuminati might have been involved, but at that point it’s hard to tell if he’s just having fun with his hosts.
There are several theories at play here. Either Davis was abducted by aliens, he made the whole thing up because he’s bored now that he’s out of the NBA, or he’s working on a pitch for his next movie or television project. Davis has appeared in and produced several films since his first project, 2005’s “Asylum.”
He was forced to end his NBA career, maybe prematurely, after suffering a gruesome knee injury against the Miami Heat in the first round of the playoffs in 2012. He played for five teams over the course of his 13-year career. Davis's biggest accomplishment was leading the No. 8 seeded Golden State Warriors in an incredible first-round upset of No. 1 Dallas in 2007.
For his NBA career, Davis earned over $147 million, so even if he is going crazy he has plenty to fall back on.
