Baron Davis, as only an adept point guard can do, grabbed the conversation and revealed the depth of his frustration since becoming a Clipper. Davis said before Wednesday's 93-85 loss to Portland, the Clippers' sixth straight, that he once might have handled differences about his place in the organization and former general manager-coach Mike Dunleavy much differently. "The younger Baron definitely would have said something," he said. "Yeah. I probably would have asked for a way out, looked for the easiest way out."

"I'm the king of L.A.," Baron Davis likes to say, with a smile on his bearded face. But he doesn't even play here. He plays in Oakland. And it's not right. They don't deserve him. We do. "Comfortable everywhere," he likes to say, grinning some more. There is a chuckle in his voice. "From Compton to Malibu."

Baron Davis was actually joking around and laughing as he was being removed from the Madison Square Garden court on a stretcher during the New York Knicks' playoff game against the Miami Heat on Sunday night. It's difficult to imagine anyone could muster a smile after an injury that looked that painful. Just look at the expressions on the faces of LeBron James and his Miami Heat teammates as they watch the Knicks point guard tumble to the ground after his knee buckled while planting his foot on a fast break during the third quarter.

Charlotte Hornet rookie Baron Davis, who had major surgery on his left knee two years ago as a freshman at UCLA, has injured the knee again and will have an MRI today. "It's not the ACL [which he tore in college] or anything," said the third pick of the 1999 NBA draft. "Just something nagging. I've never had it before." "If it does show a tear we'll have to make a decision," Charlotte Coach Paul Silas said. "He didn't look to bad, but if we don't have Baron we have to find a point guard."

How good can the Clippers be? "We can be really good," Clippers point guard Baron Davis said. Good enough to make the playoffs this season? Davis paused, gathering his thoughts. When told that the one and only Charles Barkley recently told a reporter that the Clippers are good enough to make the playoffs, Davis smiled. Then he gave an emphatic answer. "We can be in the playoffs easily," Davis responded, his mood suddenly upbeat. Now you have to keep in mind that the Clippers haven't had No.1 draft pick Blake Griffin all season because of a broken left kneecap and he's not expected back until January.

I know dogs, so I stopped by to see Baron Davis. The Clippers have built a very nice kennel, including a combination wood/glass trophy case for their so-called show dogs, which, almost needless to say, sits empty. Tim Thomas called this home earlier this season. Bow wow, indeed. Now a suspended Zach Randolph resides here as well as so many other discarded players, including druggie Ricky Davis. The NBA's version of a pound, I guess.
