While he hasn't played an NBA game since suffering a serious knee injury in 2012, Baron Davis remains a prominent figure in basketball circles. Davis is currently traveling the country to promote his new documentary on the Drew League and settling in for yet another basketball comeback. One of the many off-the-court initiatives Davis is involved in is NBA Green Week, which runs from March 22-29 and promotes eco-friendly living. Davis spoke with SI.com about the event and also weighed in on his UCLA Bruins, L.A. basketball, Russell Westbrook and more.
SI.com: Can you explain your involvement in NBA Green Week?
Davis: "I actually like it. I wish I was 100 percent healthy and in my prime at this time, but it just looks like the game is fun; guys are playing with a lot of free will and creativity. It's not a lot of plays being run, it's more free-flowing offense and it's a point guard's league. Looking at it as a point guard, you always want to play in an era like this."
Davis: "I always thought he had it because he knows how to play and he has a high basketball IQ. I just think he couldn't do it anymore. His body couldn't take it anymore. For him, he had a great career, he's a great player, he's somebody who's a great friend, and I congratulate him just like everybody else. He'll always go down as a legend in this game."
