Just a few weeks ago, New York Knicks fans were anxious to have point guard Baron Davis heal up and get onto the court. Of course, that was before Jeremy Lin began starting games and tearing through opponents' defenses.

Now Davis is back in action, he is coming off the bench, a fact that doesn't seem to bother him a bit. "It's my 13th year in the league, so I'm not fighting for anything but a championship," Davis said, according to ESPN New York. "That's all that matters."

Thursday, the team takes on the Miami Heat, a team whose biggest stars — LeBron James and Dwyane Wade -- spent some energy wooing him after he was waived by the Cleveland Cavaliers, Davis said, according to the site.

"I spoke to Pat Riley. D-Wade, LeBron, they texted me and asked me what was up," Davis said, ESPN reports. "But I pretty much knew I wanted to come [to New York] and play in the Garden and play in front of these fans and play for this organization. I always wanted to play here, so this was really like my first choice."
