NBA star 'abducted by aliens'

Life in the NBA isn't just fast cars and private jets. If former New York Knicks guard Baron Davis is to be believed, one can also spend time in a spaceship. 

A two-time NBA All-Star, who was recruited with pick three in the 1999 draft and then went on to play with six teams, Davis somewhat upset the rhythm of an interview this week when he announced that "two weeks ago, I was abducted by aliens".

Pressed for details by Neal Brennan and Moshe Kasher – the slightly incredulous hosts of sports podcast, The Champs – Davis said that the incident occurred while he was driving from Las Vegas to LA in the early hours of the morning.

"I'm a little tired and, s**t, I see this light and it's a big a**e truck. And I said, oh f**k, this is going to be traffic. Driving, driving and the next thing you know there's a steel thing and these crazy looking people – half human, half ugly-looking mother f*****s."

"They were poking me on the nose, looking at my eyes, they had my hands tied and the next thing you know I was in Montabello dude, burning rubber on the way back to LA at 4 o'clock in the morning."

Brennan and Kasher gave the basketballer several chances to make it clear that he was joking. None were taken.
