View Full Version : Baron Davis quote

<< &quot;What I wanted to do was to lead my team and not get into what was the best player in the series,&quot; Davis said. &quot;We all know Tracy McGrady is one of the top five players in the league. I'm just an up-and-coming young guy trying to get a little pub.&quot; >>

He said that after Charlotte pummeled the Magic today to take the series 3-1. You gotta like that guy.

Great effort by Baron.

Yep, had his second straight triple double. And almost averaged a triple double for the series too i/expressions/face-icon-small-shocked.gif.

That's Dirk-esque. I've been wanting to use that line. i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif

They showed the stats on ESPN of the others who had back to back triple doubles. There were 5 or 6 players who have done it before the ones I remember:

Not bad company.

I can't recall Dirk ever averaging a Triple double for a series. That's way beyond Dirk-esque. That's Magic Johnson/Oscar Robertson-esque

I tell you what, it's impressive that's for sure.. He's the first player to do it since Kevin Garnett.. One of the most overrated players according to some people.

it's impressive..he's doing some nice things..one of the better players in the playoffs this year..
although his shooting is very poor
