Stephen Jackson started a mini-controversy by telling reporters that Baron Davis wanted to return to Golden State. Has Davis really given up on the Clippers that quickly? As Davis told Lisa Dillman of the Los Angeles Times, it was all a misunderstanding.
"No, I don't want out," he told The Times on Monday at practice. "I don't know what Stephen Jackson got from my conversation. That never came out of my mouth.
"I'm here. I'm here doing the same thing I did at Golden State. The first year I got to Golden State it was rough. It was a tough season. We were figuring each other out, figuring out the system. That transition year is always a tough year."
For what it's worth, Davis did admit to reminiscing with Jackson, but denied actually regretting his decision.
"We talked about how I miss playing with him. When you see people, you miss what you had," Davis said. "Obviously, in no way shape or form am I ready to jump ship.
So there you go, crisis averted. Davis is happy with his decision, and the 10-23 Warriors and 8-21 Clippers can resume their
seasons without any fear of distraction.
