What a difference a year makes. After last year's dismal campaign with Coach Mike Montgomery at the helm, Baron Davis fairly or unfairly took a lot of the blame. When it rains it pours.
This past season however when the Warriors became the darling of the sports world Boom Dizzle won the hearts of many not just those of the good people in the Bay. When it's sunny it's eye-blindingly bright.
Another ReDirkulous highlight!
3 of the NBA's Most Wanted: Boom Dizzle, Snoop Dizzle, and J Rizzle.

Are you ready for this?!
BD's the captain of this ship.
One thing that will probably shock you is that compared to that nightmare 2005-2006 Warriors season, a few of Baron's regular season stats actually dipped (check out the numbers):
- Baron was actually slightly less accurate from downtown (30.4% to 31.5%)
- He averaged 0.8 less assists (8.1 to 8.9)
- BD turned the ball over just a tad bit more (3.1 to 2.9)
- He actually averaged less minutes per game (35:17 to 36:30)
Simply put, the numbers don't tell the whole story. I don't think there's anyone out there (except maybe Mavs fans) that would rather take the 2005-2006 BD over the 2006-2007 one. There's only one number that really matters. The number 1 for 1 big playoff upset.
Overall Grade: A
BD's so Athletic, A's fitted!
There's no disputing that BD was a great leader and teammate last season.
I think ya'll remember this hype-worthy dunk, but just in case you forgot...

BD had an unBELIEVEable season, but there's still one thing that leaves a bad taste in mouth. Boom was absolutely robbed of an All-Star appearance last year. This season let's all band together and vote it up when the All-Star fan ballots come out online. Let's see if we can get Dizzle into that starting lineup. It won't be easy with the likes of Kobe Bryant, Allen Iverson, Tracy McGrady, Steve Nash, Chris Paul, and Deron Williams in the Wild, Wild, West, but need I remind you of what happens when We Believe?
Do you honestly have any grade lower than an A for Boom's 2k6-2k7 season? Please keep me away from whatever you're smoking.
