My latest piece for CelticsBlog discusses the latest step in Glen Davis’ maturation process: receiving criticism well. The piece was inspired by a quote in Doc’s WEEI interview:
How tough do you have to be on Big Baby? How does he resist you’re coaching?
I don’t know that tough’s the word. You should have used demanding. Baby, to me, can improve. You just don’t want him to settle. You look at him, and he has that in him, and I tell him that all the time, ‘I’m never going to allow you settle.’ I’m just not, you have so much to give to the game and to our team, and there’s no reason for you not to be better than what you are today, or tomorrow. So, I’m never going to treat you the way you are today, I’m going to treat you the way you should be some day. He receives that very well.
