After an enormous Game Two against the Miami Heat, Glen Davis had been in a two-game hibernation when Doc Rivers tried a new tactic of motivating him: Rivers compared Davis to Milli Vanilli, a one-hit wonder.
“Funny, I haven’t seen you since Game Two,” Rivers chided his widest player.
“Doc has his ways of motivating people,” Davis told reporters after the game. The Milli Vanilli tactic, as odd as it seems, worked. The effects are shown below, when Davis started dancing after his fourth-quarter and-one during last night’s Game Five. It might have been the biggest bucket of the game, but one could argue that the charges Davis took to quell the tide of Miami’s run were just as important.
As for the dance, well, I don’t think it will catch on in too many clubs but it might — I stress might — beat the Walker Wiggle.
