New York Knicks Offseason News 2012: Baron Davis Undeterred By Long Injury Recovery, Vows Comeback

Despite suffering a gruesome injury that ended his season with the New York Knicks, free agent guard Baron Davis said retirement is not in his immediate future and he would like to return to the Knicks.

Davis, 33, suffered a partial tear of his patella and complete MCL and ACL tears during the first round of the 2012 NBA Playoffs, and currently needs a cane and right knee brace just to walk. The timetable given for his injury is approximately a full year, but Davis told the New York Daily News he isn't deterred by the long road back.

"I don't know how long (for the brace and crutch), but once I am done, it's on to rehab," said Davis. "I am coming back."

And when (if?) he comes back, he'd like it to be with the Knicks. Davis said he loved playing in New York.

"I think that people, the fans are kids out here playing basketball right now, dedicating their lives to it, I felt that. I felt that NY is the mecca of basketball," Davis said. "The love that I have for basketball, I feel it here. This is the best stage and the best opportunity, to play for a top-notch team."
