Go ahead and file this under the craziest thing you’ll hear all weekend. The basketball star revealed in a new interview that he was abducted by aliens ‘like two weeks ago,’ and we’re pretty sure he wasn’t joking at all.
Baron Davis, 34, was known for having one of the best beards in the NBA, now he’ll probably be known as the basketball player who was abducted by aliens.
Baron Davis: I Was Abducted By Aliens
The former New York Knicks player said the abduction occurred “like two weeks ago” in an interview on “The Champs Podcast” on July 11.
Thankfully, Baron went into intense detail describing his Twilight Zone-esque experience. “I was, um, on my way from Vegas here to LA,” the baller explained. “I’m a little tired and s**t, I see this light and I think it’s a big-ass truck.”
It was not a big-ass truck, according to Baron. “Then next thing you know, dude, like, I was in this f***ing steel thing.” Baron continues, saying that he was suddenly surrounded by “these f***ing crazy-looking people” who were “half-human, half, like, f***ing ugly motherf***er.” How funny — those are our favorite kind of aliens!
Baron Davis: Does He Really Think He Got Abducted By Aliens?
“The Champs” hosts Neal Brennan and Moshe Kasher pushed Baron on the story, telling him, “We don’t know if you’re being serious or not.”
“They were poking me on my nose and they were, like, looking me in my eyes,” Baron responded. “They had my hands like, tied up and the next thing you know, I was f***ing in Montebello, dude, burning rubber on the way back to LA. It was like four o’clock in the morning.”
The NBA star finished his story explaining how the experience — or whatever you wanna call it — changed him: “I come back and I’m like, sharper and s**t. I’m retaining information.”
Baron has since gone back on his oddly detailed abduction account, tweeting “that alien thing is a joke,” on July 12, but who knows, maybe he’s just embarrassed now. Because he really seemed convinced that something happened to him.
Either way, thanks for the story, Baron!
