So I’m sittin’ in my easy chair the other night watching the Mavs and Warriors go at it … and then it hits me. The whole game I’m watching Baron Davis and thinking “I’ve seen this guy before … but where?” It’s like I’ve seen him in another life, or more specifically, in HIS other life. So that’s the punch line … in Baron Davis’s previous life, he was … are you ready for this … Walt Frazier!!! YES … THAT’S IT!!! A cool-as-a-cucumber, hard to rattle, clutch-as-can-be point guard with a beard. Walt “Clyde” Frazier, formerly of the famous early 70’s world champion NY Knicks with Willis Reed, Dave Debusschere, etc retired and came back to “sports life” as Baron Davis of the Golden State Warriors. All you 40-60 somethings out there know what I’m talking about, don’t you???
Surely we’ve all had these transformational moments where we’ve witnessed a “sports resurrection”. So tell us about yours. Who is playing today that you’d swear on a stack of bibles used to be so-and-so from the 1975 so-and-so’s???
I just don’t understand why Clyde … er, uh Baron … isn’t wearing Pumas 🙂
