Davis still has sense of humor
A high-flying guard with flair who could score in a variety of ways, Davis gained a reputation for being a high-volume shooter and a me-first player.
A parent now and a man who has played in three countries since last playing in the NBA with the Clippers in 2009-10, Davis seems a bit more introspective today.
“It brings a whole different perspective on life,” Davis said of his experiences. “But I think it’s a good journey. I don’t regret anything really.”
Davis pauses a beat before adding with a laugh, “Well, the triple-double, but ... that’s my only thing.”
Davis gained infamy when he shot at the wrong basket during a March 2003 game in an effort to gain a rebound and record his first career triple-double. It’s a moment that has seemingly overshadowed an otherwise strong pro career.
“You’ve got to carry your skeletons with you,” Davis said. “I’m not trying to hide them at all. They’re there.”
