Baron Davis “Wants To Come Back” To Warriors?

So there might have been another reason that Clippers point guard/roller skating enthusiast Baron Davis plumped up this off-season other than getting paid $250,00 by Jenny Craig so he could lose the weight by drinking their flavorless shakes. It turns out he might have been eating to mask the depression of being split from his BFF Stephen Jackson.

Stephen Jackson and Baron Davis - together again?

OK, it was probably the $250,00 that did it, but still…it’s clear that things aren’t working out for Davis with the Clippers, and it’s looking more and more like a return to Golden State is imminent. The latest news comes from Stephen Jackson, who told INSIDE BAY AREA that he and Davis hung out on Saturday night and are already plotting Davis’ return to the Warriors:

China Cares Less About NBA Preseason Than Us?

It’s a play on the old “tree falling in a woods” hypothetical scenario: If the NBA holds a preseason and nobody’s around to see it, does it even happen? Last week Brooks posted about the horrid numbers that NBA preseason action in Vegas was getting, but that looks like a ratings bonanza compared to the amount of interest it received in China.

Empty Seats

(Three’s a crowd?)

In case you didn’t know, the NBA held two preseason games in China last week between the Golden State Warriors and Milwaukee Bucks.

Rams RB Jackson Decides To End Long Holdout

You could tell fantasy football owners were starting to get nervous. They were coming into work with bloodshot eyes, earned from a long night of website refreshing. They were calling buddies in St. Louis out of the blue, just to “catch up” and, hey, maybe see if they “happened to know about this Steven Jackson fella.” They were making decision trees, pros-and-cons lists, anything to help decide if they should take Jackson or not. “Players always end their holdouts before the season,” they’d say. “But what if this is the year one of them holds out for real?”

Time to jump for joy, fantasy footballers. Your long national nightmare is over. Steven Jackson has decided to officially end his 27-day holdout. Marshall Faulk would be proud.

The ST. LOUIS POST DISPATCH reports that the Rams RB would like it to be “a little more lively” in the Edward Jones Dome on Sundays.And he thinks broadcasting block rockin’ beats is the answer: “You’ve got to look around the league. There’s hip-hop played everywhere. I don’t know why we think it shouldn’t be played here.

Weird Al Yankovic Straight Outta Lynwood

I think we need to get our fans behind us. And we can’t do it if everything’s quiet.”If Jackson really wants the fans behind them, maybe the 2-9 Rams should try winning some games.
