I’ve got SLAM’s Art Director Stephen Goggi hard at work on an official logo trophy for the winner of the Player of the D.A.Y. He’ll have that logo for us soon.

Today’s winner is Baron Davis, who played all 48 minutes in the Warriors win down in Big D, helping Nellie to a glorious return against the billionaire owner that won’t pay him $6 million. Baron’s numbers were 26, 8, and 7, but the big thing was the win against what should be a superior team that was desperate to get a W on its home floor on banner night. Honorable mention to Ben Gordon for his 37 and 9 in the Bulls spanking of one of their central division rivals. I just felt that the Warriors win was important for their credibility, especially in one of the toughest venues for a visiting team to play.
