Baron Davis wanted to clear the air after a photo of the New York Knicks backup point guard appeared on numerous websites which characterized him as simulating smoking a joint to celebrate making his first basket in a Knicks uniform during Tuesday night's game against the New Jersey Nets.

The photo— taken from the MSG Network— showed Baron putting his fingertips to his mouth like he was toking on a roach after he sunk a three-point shot.

Davis tweeted and his agent Todd Ramasar confirmed to The New York Post that the point guard was just blowing a kiss.

Last night, Jeremy Lin's new backup tweeted, "To clear up rumors, I was kissing my hands after I shot the 3 last night. Kissing the 3 was all I was doing. Stop fishing and hating plz."



Ramasar said he was angry that the gesture was taken out of context.

"He wasn't making gestures of smoking," said Ramasar. "Baron was making gestures of blowing kisses on his three. That's ridiculous anyone would insinuate he was making smoking gestures."

It does look like he is imitating one of those chefs drawn on a pizza box and saying, "Hey! That's a good shot."

Baron was making his Knicks debut and came off the bench for 10 minutes during the 100-92 loss.

He was playing his first NBA game since April with the Cleveland Cavaliers and finished with three points, one assist and a turnover.

The NBA did not comment.
