NBA Lockout Talks Progressing On Saturday, According To Baron Davis

The second day of NBA lockout talks are underway with "enormous consequences" looming, according to Commissioner David Stern, if the two sides aren't able to move closer to an agreement. Luckily, according to the first reports out of Saturday's discussions, Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Baron Davis makes it seem as if the talks are progressing.

"We're working, we're working," Davis said while leaving Saturday afternoon, according to Newsday's Alan Hahn. "Both sides are willing and able."

In all honesty, those quotes don't mean much, but at least his reason for stepping out in the middle of the negotiating session doesn't sound like it was done because something negative -- say Commissioner Stern poking his finger at him -- had happened inside the bargaining room. In fact, Davis told NBA.com's David Aldridge that Friday's report of the dust-up between Dwyane Wade and Stern was actually "blown a little out of proportion."

Luckily, Davis also addressed his business-super-casual-like-if-casual-meant-what-you-wear-when-chopping-wood attire: "I'm funny looking, so that helps ease the tension."

So see, you guys, there's a reason for his looking out of place. This probably deserves a bump up in the NBA lockout power rankings.
