The Baron Davis Effect
In ESPN's Daily Dime today, #10 (on the bottom right) was about Baron Davis's impact on the Warriors.
He plays cool and confident, like he knows he's got you before the two of you even get started.
Warrior fans pray every night that he keeps on doing it, the bad injury mojo leaves him alone this year. They know they'd miss his 14.6 and 8.9 a night. But more than anything, games like this 99-83 win over the Hornets are a function of his swagger.
The Warriors are a young, tentative creature just peeking his head out of the egg. But when Baron's on the floor, they're a confident, well-heeled group who play like they've been doing it for years.
