It has been more than a year since Baron Davis said he hoped to return to the NBA, six months since he told the world why, and an equal amount of time since he dropped 44 in an L.A. pro-am game.

So, where the hell is he?

The subsequent silence might have led you to believe that his comeback followed a familiar arc: Retired player misses playing (or getting paid to play) and, his body healed from the time off, decides he left too soon. The comeback ends when the grind to get back in shape breaks him down again or he simply can't reclaim the skills that made him NBA-worthy in the first place. End of story.

Not to worry, Davis' reputation as somewhat of a non-conformist remains intact. ("Part of his DNA," says former teammate Ryan Hollins.) He was simply waiting for his second son, Luke Alden Brewster Davis, who arrived last Sunday. His comeback is not complete, but it is far from over. He has entered himself in the NBA D-League pool and fully expects to be playing somewhere for someone by the end of January. He doesn't care where because he is fully confident it will be the stepping-stone to a return to the NBA.
