NBA's Baron Davis: I Was 'Abducted By Aliens' In Desert

Former Knicks player Baron Davis says he was “actually abducted by aliens.”



The basket-case baller told the hosts of “The Champs Podcast” that he crossed into his own personal twilight zone while driving “like two weeks ago.”

“I was, um, on my way from Vegas here to L.A.,” he said on the episode that aired Thursday.

“I’m a little tired and s--- and I see this light and I think it’s a big-a-- truck.

“Then next thing you know, dude, like, I was in this f------ steel thing,” Davis deadpanned.

The UCLA standout and two-time NBA All-Star who tore ligaments in his knee while playing for the Knicks against the Miami Heat in the 2012 playoffs is also a first-class practical joker.

He tweeted late Friday night: "that alien thing is a joke."



However he had stuck to his story even after podcast hosts Neal Brennan and Moshe Kasher pressed the 34-year-old, trying to get him to admit he was telling a tall tale.

“We don’t know if you’re being serious or not,” one of the hosts asked.

“Dude, they were poking me on my nose and s---,” Davis replied.

“They were poking me on my nose and they were, like, looking me in my eyes,” added Davis, who works as a community rep for the Knicks.

“They had my hands like, tied up and the next thing you know, I was f------ in Montebello, dude, burning rubber on the way back to L.A. It was like four o’clock in the morning.”

The encounter ended, like most wild nights in California, with a pit stop at In-N-Out Burger.

“I just got off at the next exit,” said Davis, who noted he has been taking Percocet after knee surgery.

After his extraterrestrial experience, Davis is still flying high.

“I come back and like, I’m sharper and s---. You know what I mean?” he asked the hosts. “I’m retaining information.”
