Baron Davis (born April 13, 1979 in Los Angeles, California) is a point guard with the Golden State Warriors. He began playing basketball at the age of three. Later, Davis became a star at Crossroads High School and UCLA. Davis was drafted by the Charlotte Hornets as the number three pick in the 1999 NBA Draft. Today, his career continues as one of the elite guards in NBA.
On February 24 2005, Davis was traded from the Hornets (who have since changed their location to New Orleans) to the Golden State Warriors for guard Speedy Claxton and veteran forward Dale Davis. The move creates one of the more potent backcourts in the NBA with Davis and star guard Jason Richardson. It also saw Davis' return to California where he craved to return to since his college days in UCLA.
