Baron Davis, Former NBA All-Star, Says Aliens Poked His Nose, Tied Him Up (AUDIO)

Baron Davis said he had an alien encounter.

There was no "just kidding" part.

Whether or not he was messing with comedian hosts Neal Brennan and Moshe Kasher of "The Champs" podcast recently, Davis kept to his story, despite being given numerous chances to recant.

Listen above as Davis, a two-time All-Star who last played for the Knicks in 2012, recounts his alleged close encounter that began on a winding road from Las Vegas to Los Angeles. He found himself in a "steel thing" with "half-human," "crazy-looking people" poking his nose and looking into his eyes while his hands were bound. The next thing he knew, he was in Montebello, Calif., wondering what happened.

It makes us yearn for the days when Darryl Dawkins said he hailed from the Planet Lovetron.
