Baron Davis was Recruited by Miami HEAT
One of the greatest NBA coaches ever, Pat Riley, and two of the best players in the game today, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade, still couldn’t convince Baron Davis to sign with the Heat last December.
Davis already knew where he wanted to sign for the veteran’s minimum: the New York Knicks.
“I spoke to Pat Riley. D-Wade, LeBron, they texted me and asked me what was up,” Davis said. “But I pretty much knew I wanted to come here and play in the Garden and play in front of these fans and play for this organization. I always wanted to play here, so this was really like my first choice.”
