Del Negro attributed those problems to Davis’ lack of offseason conditioning work. Davis did not.

“Baron has incredible amounts of talent and ability,” Del Negro said, “but his focus needs to be on staying in condition and playing at a high level. And he hasn’t done that for a while, and I know he’s frustrated with that, but there’s things he has to do to correct that.”

Del Negro said Davis had “gotten out of shape pretty badly” over the summer, and while giving him credit for two months of hard work to get into condition, “that should have been a process right after the season ended.

“It shouldn’t have happened just two months ago. We all know that. And that’s what we’re dealing with.”

I just don't think Baron cares about playing in the NBA any longer. The last time he truly cared about playing basketball was when he was still with the Warriors. Even he stated that coming to LA would give him the opportunity to do what he loved the most.....movies, Hollywood. His stats has went down dramatically ever since he left the Warriors.

The hair versus the beard - I love it!

The sad reality is that Davis knows this and has admitted to as much. The news here isn't that VDN is ripping on a player, it's a player getting old and having to adjust...

It has to be tough as a player to get called out by your coach. It sounds like Baron and Vinny both knew this was an issue so is it really an issue??

whhhattthehell! Aaron Davis? The hornets legend?! Jeez louiez, Baron did that awesome power, windmill tomahtoejam dunk on Drago, and he defeated one of the best teams in world history in the Mavericks! Dude, that dunk was better than mocha almond fudge ice cream! How could Vinny Del Taco talk about him like that?! What a dingus! And now with the clippers, hes helping Bob Griffin and Eddie Gordon by showing them what not to do on the court, sacrificing stats for the betterment of the team! What the hell does this journeyman coach want? Dunk on his italian butt Baron! Show him what legends are made of! F the haters! F the police!

When you're on the wrong side of 30, two months of conditioning isn't going to cut it if you want to stay relevant at the NBA level.

Baron actually looked like he was trying hard the 1st game. Guess the 0-3 start got him disheartened.

wat if brand stayed ? it would have been two washed up superstars who are overpaid.

clippers dodged a bullet even if it didnt seem like at the moment.

now they have griffin who is looking like a superstar in the making.

Would love to see Baron shipped back to Charlotte.

Maybe it might inspire him to go back to his great play of his Hornets days. Him & S-Jax made a great combo as well.

Diaw + Diop for Baron, straight up.
