Few franchises live with a reality bleaker than that of the Clippers. Golden State fits the bill, though. But never you mind that: Baron Davis told Stephen Jackson the point guard would love to come back to the Warriors via trade, and Jack told Marcus Thompson II of the Contra Costa Times, which is sure to please the Clippers.
"That's all we talked about," Jackson said. "I went to his house, spent some time with his mom and his grandmother. He wants to come back. And if he wants to come back, I want him back."
The Warriors have been laughably bad, the Clippers have been laughably bad. Without question, Warriors management should regret letting Davis go. Davis should regret leaving. The Clippers should regret signing Davis without first securing Elton Brand. But all the regrets in the world won't get these two teams talking.
There is absolutely no way Warriors management will talk with Clippers management following the Davis fiasco. The way in which Davis waited until nearly the last minute before executing his early termination option will not be forgotten by Robert Rowell or Chris Cohan ... who led the charge to jettison Davis in the first place. If the management outside of Chris Mullin didn't like Davis before June 30, do you really expect them to swallow pride and change course so soon? If so, you haven't paid much attention to the Warriors.
