Baron Davis indulges blogGQ in a Q & A. The questions are pretty facile, including the perfunctory circa-2003 Frankie Munoz reference, but it’s still a fun read:
You signed with the Clippers thinking that you’d be playing with Elton Brand. But then he signed with Philly.
That was definitely disappointing. But I’m gonna bring a new generation, the new movement. For a long time, you never really saw the Clippers enjoy each other. With me leading, it’s gonna be fun basketball—play hard and play to win.
Okay… But playing for the Clippers has, historically speaking, had some drawbacks. The Lakers have Jack Nicholson. The Clippers have Frankie Muniz.
We all know this is Kobe’s city and the Lakers are kings in this town. I’ve always been considered an underdog in this league, so what better team to go to than one that’s always been an underdog?
You went to Crossroads, a progressive private school, with Kate Hudson and Zooey Deschanel. Couldn’t you look them up?
They’re Lakers fans! They’re all Lakers fans.
Any truth to the rumor that you’re making a movie with James Gandolfini?
Yes. It’s Sonny Vaccaro’s life story—about the ABCD Camp.
Tony Soprano as Sonny Vaccaro? Really?
Watch, watch. He’s gonna kill it.
No word yet on the casting of Sebastian Telfair.
