"I just don't want the day to come where I pick up that paper and it says he shot someone, or that he was shot. Every day that goes by that I don't see that, I feel good." - Moe Smedley, Zach Randolph's high school coach
Justin Davis and Ray Young - For training camp in 2005, the Golden State Warriors signed Justin Davis and Ray Young, both of whom had gone to high school with Baron Davis. (Young, a former McDonald's All-American, was also briefly a team mate of his at UCLA.) Young has not played since, and Davis managed only one more year before knee injuries ended his career. Still nothing can be found about Young's whereabouts, but Davis has reappeared on the scene, now employed as the project co-ordinator at the Mitchell Kapor Foundation in the Bay Area. As for what that entails, we'll leave that up to the press release. Or to Justin Davis himself:
[F]ormer Golden State Warriors training camp invitee Justin Davis is out of basketball, and has been since a brief trial in Germany back in November 2006. Therefore, as was the case with Chris Crawford, I am hereby announcing that I can't be bothered to bring you Justin Davis news any more, since there isn't any. (Readers note: Bizarrely, when I said that about Crawford, someone e-mailed me and told me that, somewhat out of spite, they were going to single-handedly track him down and get an update from him on his life. If someone wants to do the same with Justin David [sic], then be my guest. You could form a merry band of freedom fighters, fighting for what's right in the world; peace, saving the rainforests, the downfall of terrorism and Chris Crawford updates. I could be your leader. You can be like my droogs or something. Except we won't be as annoying as the real droogs. Or as rape-inclined.)
Despite the offer oozing with generosity, no one took me up on it, so I've had to do it myself. However, I've failed once again. Justin Davis hasn't played since 2006, and any off-the-court stuff is proving to be hard to find given the common nature of his name. The best I can offer you is his Facebook account.
Note: Non-US teams that the player
has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in
that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not
the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where
no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League
split in Japan.
