Baron Davis is Selling a Sitcom Called ‘I Love Boom’

There’s no telling when Baron Davis’ basketball career will resume, but good news New York Knicks fans (!), B.Diddy’s Hollywood ventures are doing just fine. From ESPN: “It’s a chilly November evening in Hollywood, and the NBA veteran (now with the Knicks) is about to tape a cameo for the TV Land sitcom ‘Hot In Cleveland.’ That was the plan, anyway. Upon arrival, Davis took one look at the series lead, the illustrious Betty White, and all but ran for the door. ‘I just forgot all of my lines!’ Davis yelps at the 90-year-old comedienne and TV legend, his eyes as wide as the ball he bounces for a living. ‘I’m so starstruck!’ [...] This past summer, Davis filmed a role as a gym teacher in Adam Sandler’s ‘Donny’s Boy’ (formerly ‘I Hate You, Dad’), which bows in June. Next, he’ll shop to networks a self-produced pilot for “I Love Boom,” a reality-based sitcom that Davis describes as ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm meets Entourage,’ about the off-court life of an NBA player (Davis, playing himself). ‘It’s an offbeat look at a player’s typical day off, when he goes to doctor’s appointments and always says the wrong things,’ Davis offers.”

    You know what would be a hit sitcom Baron? The 2011-2012 NY Knicks.

    Like ‘My pee is all brown and foamy and I can’t remember where I was last night’?

    He’s going to try and imitate the comedy of a comedic genius like Larry David? Let’s keep it 100, Baron. How about Seinfeld trying to play basketball in the NBA then?

    this has potential, could be funny. Baron is really trying to get into the film industry, smart considering his NBA career is nearing towards the end

    I hope he’s pitching into rehab with the same vigour!

    real talk this joint will probably be a great watch. Baron is a talented dude, I’m supporting it

    this is going to be like “Louie” on FX then. I dont watch Curb, but in Louie, Louie CK plays a fictionalized version of himself. great show

    No doubt, nash will make an appearance or two. This could be good.

    That’s actually a really good idea for a show.
    Co-sign Joey, Louie is the best comedy on TV right now. I love that show! I hate having to wait like 8 months for a new season, though… It’s too addicting for that.
    You’d really enjoy Curb Your Enthusiasm. I actually prefer Louie, but the first few seasons of Curb (plus the seventh) are classic.
