Baron Davis is an interesting man on and off the court, and he’s about to prove his creativity even further. Davis has teamed up with former EA Sports creative force Sean O’Brien to form 5 Balloons Interactive, a mobile gaming company producing titles for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.
The first game set to release is “Getting Buckets“, which along with Baron Davis himself, will feature Steve Nash, Rajon Rondo, Brandon Jennings and Candace Parker. It’s a simple, fast-paced, game where players sprint their way through various environments while collecting as many buckets as they can before time expires.
On why he wanted to invest his time and money into 5 Balloons Interactive:
“I just think that right now gaming is at an all-time high. For me, I see how innovations are happening in the digital world, and I want to participate in it. There are some fun opportunities out here in the marketplace with the iPad and all of these mobile systems where you can start playing games as apps, and that’s a whole different experience than what people are used to. I hooked up with Sean, and we talked about creating games where people could ultimately have a greater experience than what they were getting with just the normal iPad apps.”
When he’s not busy filming public service announcements for New York City’s Department of Transportation, he apparently spends his idle time coming up with pretty neat-looking video games. Davis, currently rehabbing an injury he suffered in a game playing for the New York Knicks in May that saw the point guard tear both his ACL and MCL as well as [...]

Carmelo Anthony, Kevin Durant and James Harden showed up just to watch the women play, but ended up on the warm-up courts outside the main volleyball arena learning just how tough...
Baron Davis is putting his creativity to good use. If you’ve yet to see it, Baron Davis has recently taken on a new role as “Brian Davies“, a reporter devoted to bringing you updates on this year’s Olympic games- in some sort of attempted English accent. Check out some behind the scenes photos:

Well, that was quite the game yesterday, wasn’t it? Team USA put on a shooting display that I, personally, have never seen been before and I have watched a lot of basketball. Starting with Carmelo Anthony and stopping with Anthony Davis, Team USA showed the world why they are the best.
Old records were broken and new ones were set in Team USA’s 156-73 trouncing of Nigeria...
Team USA set a new Olympic record today with their jaw-dropping 83-point victory over Nigeria. The 83-point victory was the highest scoring game in Olympic history, which is why it seems only fitting that Carmelo Anthony’s 37-points were the most scored in an Olympic game by an American:
“It’s unexplainable, that’s the only thing I can say about it,” said Carmelo Anthony...
Last year it was the over hyping of a one, Jeremy Lin, just after a few games. Most of us were scratching our heads to why the New York Knicks fans were blowing this “Linsanity” thing way out of proportion. Especially when we watched their counter-parts, Jets and Giants fans, scratching their heads over the “Tebow Mania” fiasco. I am still not understanding why...
