Former NBA star Baron Davis says he's very close to being a current NBA star ... and he's saying it while carrying a huge vase of roses ... for reasons unknown to TMZ Sports.
Davis was leaving The Nice Guy in West Hollywood when we asked how his NBA comeback was going -- he recently signed with a D-League team to work his way back into the league.
Check out the clip -- Baron says his return is going "great" and he could be back in the league next season. Great news ... but once again ... why a massive vase of flowers at a nightclub?
It's not his birthday ... we checked ... but we promise to bring you answers.
