Big Baby Reflects On His Time As A Boston Celtic

Written by 

  Does anyone else miss Glen "Big Baby" Davis, especially after the Boston Celtics have been pushed around in the first two games against the New York Knicks?

  For all the criticism that Davis took in his four seasons as a Celtic, for all the "Shrek and Donkey" antics and crying on the bench, his game might just in fact be missed by this version of the Boston Celtics that trail the Knicks in their first round series.

  As Gary Washburn of The Boston Globe writes, Davis has taken what he learned under the tough big brother tutelage of Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce and turned it into a leadership role with his current team, the Orlando Magic. Even with a fractured foot that kept him off the floor since January 30th, his voice has still be heard from the bench mentoring his young teammates.

     You can see the potential here, now it’s about how we can be consistent. It’s me trying to be a leader, understand what we have to do, and how we’ve got to do it. Make sure that I put the effort and the mind-set to get it done.”     

  Davis said that he actually thanked KG, Pierce and Doc for the "tough love" and putting that discipline on him and also discussed how thankful he was to his former teammates and coach and he sees a lot of himself from back then in the young guys he plays with now in Orlando.

  His new coach Jacques Vaughn has seen the leadership side of Davis grow to the point where he has named Davis a co-captain alongside Jameer Nelson and challenged him to take on that role.

 In 34 games for the Magic prior to his injury, Davis was averaging 15.1 ppg and 7.2 rpg. Comparing that to the man he was traded for, Brandon Bass averaged 8.7 ppg and 5.2 rpg in playing all 81 of the Celtics games this season.
