Former NBA player and current good opinion-haver Stephen Jackson has not been shy about his support for laxer weed restrictions in the NBA. Back in May, he went on The Jump and spoke about drug testing and how much it’s changed from the time when he entered the NBA and there was just one test at the start of the year.
Norman Powell just slammed home a nice dunk, but at best it's only the second best dunk by a UCLA Bruin ever. Or maybe it's lower? Did Tyus Edney ever do anything sweet for UCLA?
Baron Davis's comeback mockumentary continues to be one of the best recurring features on Inside the NBA. Last night, Baron's journey led him to China to discuss a possible stint on the Shanghi Sharks with Yao Ming, and then to Oakland to talk to Warriors co-owner Peter Guber. Highlight of this episode: Fat Yao Ming!
It's been some time since we've had Baron Davis in our lives, and that is unfortunate because Baron Davis is awesome. Here Davis teams up with Steve Nash in a video detailing his "efforts" to return to the NBA. You will laugh at this.
Former NBA star Baron Davis appeared on a recent episode of The Champs, a podcast hosted by comedians Neal Brennan and Moshe Kasher, and he spoke briefly about the time he was abducted by aliens while driving from Las Vegas to L.A. Sure, Baron Davis, why the hell not?
During its short 25 years in the NBA, the Hornets moniker has proven to be the league's Johnny Cash — it's been everywhere, man. Born in Charlotte, transplanted to New Orleans in 2001, bivouacked in Oklahoma City for two post-Katrina seasons, back to New Orleans for the past six seasons, then banished to the Island of…
The NYC Department of Transportation released the first of a series of public service announcements, warning pedestrians, cyclists and drivers to fucking pay attention, there are eight million other people in this goddamn city and life is hard enough without some selfish asshole just bowling through life like…
When the news broke more than a year ago that Clippers owner Donald Sterling used to heckle Baron Davis from his courtside seat when Davis was still playing for him, Davis declined to comment. Reports at the time said Sterling's barbs included questioning Davis's shot selection and telling Davis he was out of shape.…
Baron Davis and his agent, Todd Ramasar, got smoke in their eyes over the suggestion that Davis had mimicked toking a spliff after knocking down a 3-pointer during the Knicks' loss to the Nets on Monday night. Davis first got high and mighty on Twitter last night in an attempt to clear the air:
Remember these two injured guys with oversize glasses? Yeah, they're playing professional basketball for Jeremy Lin's team tonight, reports ESPN.
The Knicks added Jeremy Lin to the roster last night in an effort to fix the fact that they have zero depth in the backcourt. He's the league's lone Asian-American player, and he's also the only Harvard grad in the pros. Get this kid a billboard.
Here's a photo of some NBA players who spent the day getting thrown up against a wall by David Stern. We'll save our discussion of BRI split for another day. For now, I'd like to draw your attention to the man in the hipster-snug flannel shirt, Baron Davis, looking very much like the lost black member of Fleet Foxes.

The Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Miami Heat at home last night, 102-90, for just their fifteenth win of the season. For the 51-23 Heat, who clinched a playoff spot over two weeks ago and just have to survive the remainder of the season without a significant injury, this was really just another slight embarrassment…
Clippers guard Baron Davis, who has averaged 12.8 points and 7 assists this season — with some credit due to Blake Griffin's ability to finish close to the basket — is headed to Cleveland, along with a first-round draft pick. The Cavs are sending Mo Williams and Jamario Moon. Davis, who is nursing a swollen left knee,…
Because no one reads the newspaper, and SportsCenter's anchors are too perky for this early in the morning, Deadspin combs the best of the broadsheets and the blogosphere to bring you everything you need to know to start your day.
Baron Davis' laptop was stolen and he would really like it back. But just to be safe, his lawyer is preemptively threatening to sue the ass off anyone who publishes the personal photos and videos that might be on it.
So, is Baron Davis' Jenny Craig diet working? You be the judge. Perhaps Jessica Alba can dispense weight-loss tips (she had a baby in June). Here they are cavorting last week in Cabo — Jessica's in the towel — as Davis prepares for the NBA preseason which begins Oct. 5 against the Hornets. This photo (and the ones…
