NEW YORK (WFAN) — Baron Davis just took a page out of Rex Ryan’s playbook.
The Knicks point guard told the New York Post that he sees a “2011-12 New York Knicks” championship banner rising to the rafters at Madison Square Garden.
“I think that we’ll come out of nowhere,” he told the paper, “and we’ll do it.”
Davis said he’d “probably” DJ at a New York City nightclub “once we win the championship.”
The Knicks have surged back from a lackluster start to reach .500 behind the emergence of Jeremy Lin.
Now at 18-18, New York is poised to make a run.
“I am optimistic, and I believe in what we have here in New York City,” Davis told The Post. “And I believe in what we have here for the New York Knicks.”
Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni started the title talk back in December.
“If it all comes together, why can’t we compete for a championship?” he told WFAN’s Mike Francesa.
Linsanity has helped bring the excitement back to MSG. The Knicks displayed more of a team game Wednesday, but the crowd was electric as ever.
Davis said that combined with the depth of his team, the Garden faithful could “take us all the way.”
