Baron Davis, who signed with the BIG3 on Dec. 19, 2017, has joined 3’s Company as the team’s newest co-captain. “At the end of the day, I just wanna hoop,” said Davis. “Hearing about the fun they had this past summer really made me excited to suit up. I have a lot of basketball left, and this is a great opportunity to fill that void I’ve been missing.” Davis is a two-time NBA All-Star and record-holder over a 13-year NBA career.
Davis was the third overall pick of the Charlotte Hornets in the 1999 NBA Draft. His NBA career included stints with the Hornets, Golden State Warriors, L.A. Clippers, Cleveland Cavaliers and New York Knicks. He twice led the NBA in steals (2004, 2007), was a third-team All-NBA player in 2004 and was also the NBA Skills Challenge champion that year.
Prior to the NBA, Davis was named Pac-10 Freshman of the Year as a member of the UCLA Bruins. He was an Associated Press Third-Team All-American and First-Team All-Pac-10 in 1999. He was inducted into the UCLA Athletics Hall of Fame in 2016.
Off the court, Davis is an avid creator and businessman who has founded several corporate entities, including The Black Santa Company, which strives to celebrate cultural diversity, the joy of giving, and the magic of good to help build a brighter, more colorful world through original entertainment publication and production.
