This is not a drill folks..I repeat this is not a drill.
After three years out of the league, former Celtics swingman Ricky Davis is back in the NBA. Kind of.
Davis has reportedly accepted an invitation to attend camp with the Knicks.
Ricky Davis -- yes, that Ricky Davis who played in NBA from 1998-2010 -- is in #Knicks mini-camp today/tomorrow with 9 other camp hopefuls.

This must happen. Davis must join forces with J.R. Smith and Metta World Peace to form the triumvirate of pure unabashed insanity. Him and Metta will make a rap album. Him and J.R. will take pictures of girls with giant butts (link NSFW unless your work allows you to look at asses) and put them on twitter (is Ricky on twitter? He should be).
In all honesty the moment that J.R. and Ricky meet may tear a hole in the space time continuum. I still haven't ruled out that they're actually the same person.
And if Ricky making a return wasn't weird enough, a way more obscure former Celtic is also getting another shot.
NBA veteran Patrick O'Bryant will be going to training camp with the Charlotte Bobcats, according to source close to the situation.

For those of you keeping score at home, the last time Patrick O'Bryant played in the NBA was April 10, 2010. Important to remember that O'Bryant, who spent part of the 2008-09 season with the Celtics, was the 9th overall pick in the 2006 NBA draft. Solid chance he's the worst top ten pick in the past decade all things considered.
Amazingly enough, O'Bryant is only 27. Way more amazingly, Davis is somehow only 33. This despite the fact that he spent 12 years in the NBA and has been out of basketball for three full years.
Unreal that both of these guys are back in the headlines.
