There were several threads recently about former Knicks guard Baron Davis claiming to have been abducted by aliens.
That story generated a fair amount of interest on various UFO websites and forums.
However, I haven't seen anyone post any threads about a news story reporting the confession by Baron Davis that he was only joking.
Former Knicks guard Baron Davis confesses to MSG's Alan Hahn: I wasn't abducted by aliens
In speaking with MSG's Alan Hahn, Davis confirmed he wasn't serious about the incident.
"I mean if you know me," Davis said, before deciding against finishing the obvious statement.
"I mean, you go on a podcast with two comedians, two funny guys and it's like, 'Hey, I' need to come with like a funny story'," Davis said on MSG, as
quoted by Hahn. "Not thinking I was that important to the world, not even knowing that alien abductions are important to the world, just kind of

He has also repeatedly posted on his Twitter account that it was a joke.
Incidentally, the original discussions of the claim by Baron Davis that he was abducted resulted in quite a few people posting about other celebrities
that have claimed to have had UFO sightings and/or been abducted by aliens. Again, I don't think anyone posted any information about examples of
celebrities that later confessed that they had been joking/hoaxing (including some of those named in the recent discussions, such as William
It seems that explanations for sightings and stories don't generate anywhere near as much interest as the original story itself. This can result in
people believing that some things are unexplained when in fact the explanations have been out there for years, but require a bit of digging. Perhaps
that's what the X-files meant by "The truth is out there"...
