Is Baron Davis Talking About Returning to Oakland?

Is Baron Davis regretting his decision to spurn the Warriors and join the Clippers as a free agent? If you believe one of his former teammates, then it would appear that Baron might be open to a return to the Bay Area to play that Nellie-ball style that helped make him a star.

According to Stephen Jackson, who spent the holidays with Baron, Davis said he wants to come back to Oakland, and Jackson would welcome him back with open arms.

“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.”

"I think that would be great for us,” Jackson said. “Coach loves him. Him and (guard) Monta (Ellis) have good chemistry. If they could work that out, that would be great for the organization.”

Now, is there anything to this? Probably just a little. The Clippers sit at just 8-21, and somewhere along the way, Baron has seemingly forgotten how to shoot. So it's not surprising that he'd long for the days when the upstart Warriors knocked off the one-seeded Mavericks in the first round of the playoffs a couple of years ago.

The reality is though, this was probably just two old friends reminiscing about the good times together, while wondering how things would be different had Baron decided to sign with the Warriors last summer instead of the Clippers.
