Davis played for the Celtics from 2003 through 2006 before being traded to the Timberwolves as part of the Wally Szczerbiak deal. Five years and three NBA teams later, Davis would still like to return to Boston.

“Oh yeah definitely. No hesitation at all,” he said. “Those guys over there, they’re class acts. Doc Rivers is easily probably one of the best coaches I’ve ever played for. He’s the one that kind of started the team thing with me, bringing me off the bench and teaching me different kinds of things in the game. That would be a great blessing for me to go back to Boston and get my Bucket Brigade going again (laughs).”

Davis recorded six points (3-8 FG), four assists, two rebounds, and two steals in his debut with the Red Claws on Thursday night against the Canton Charge. Even though his game is still similar to what it was the last time he played in the NBA, his injuries have forced him to make slight adjustments that he finds helpful on the court.

“My game’s pretty much the same. Maybe about one or two inches off my vertical now (laughs) but it’s great,” he said. “Now that I’ve been injured I think it’s helped me put my game in an all-around situation -- not going to dunk on people, I have to make the open pass; not using my explosiveness and using my brain. Now that I’ve got my explosiveness back and my brain, I think it could be really, really good for me.”

That quote is classic.

Typical Ricky Davis.:facepalm:

The quote isn't classic at all. Were you trying to funny? Because you failed.

He claims being injured & losing his explosiveness made him a smarter player on the floor. Then follows it up with saying that now that his explosiveness back he'll be back to being the same player he once was.

You do realize Ricky Davis is the only player in NBA history to have a lower basketball IQ than JR Smith?

I use to love Ricky Davis. I hope he does have success. I doubt he will be able to throw it down like he used to.

I also loved watching Ricky .. Hated the Celts but actually watched while he was with them .. (I always like the "skilled" guys that lacked a brain . IE Ricky, Darius Miles, Spree ..)
Good luck !
