Ex-NBA player Baron Davis sells film based on his life

baron_davis_clippersFormer NBA player Baron Davis doesn’t seem to stop being a celebrity, although he has retired from the NBA since the 2011-12 NBA season.

Davis reportedly recently sold a 30-minute pilot single-camera comedy to Fox loosely based on the life of Baron Davis himself, according to Deadline.

The untitled series focus on a LA kid, who wins a scholarship to attend a prestigious school in the suburbs, and then has to find a balance between the world he’s entering and the one he’s accustomed to.

Davis himself grew up in South Central Los Angeles and received a basketball scholarship to attend the Crossroads private school in Santa Monica. Eventually, he played college ball at UCLA and was a first-round pick by the Charlotte Hornets in 1999.

There are yet no details on whether the pilot has any basketball in it. It’s also unknown if Baron Davis himself will appear in the film.

Davis, a two-time NBA All-Star played 13 seasons in the NBA, for Charlotte Hornets (New Orleans Hornets), Golden State Warriors, LA Clippers, Cleveland Cavaliers and NY Knicks.

He played a total of 835 NBA games (692 started), averaging 16.1 ppg, 7.2 apg and 3.8 rpg in 34.2 mpg.
