There are times when Glen Davis makes his nickname seem quite appropriate. Wednesday, Davis again lived up to his Big Baby billing, directing a little hostility at Paul Pierce.
Pierce has been leading the players’ decertification push, but Davis seems disturbed that Pierce hasn’t been in enough contact.
“Paul has emailed me – he called once,” said Davis, sounding disturbed that Pierce has not been in more frequent contact. “He doesn’t advise me on any of this. That’s what my agent does. He’s Paul Pierce – he doesn’t have to talk to me.
“But what (Pierce) basically says is to be prepared for anything. This is something the league has to go through, and we have to wait for things to work out.
“But he hasn’t talked to me about (decertification). He just talks to me about being ready.”
On another note, Davis remains in pole position for the “most likely to eat himself out of a big payday during the NBA lockout” award, named in honor of Shawn Kemp. So at least he can be happy about that.
Disclaimer: I do not hate Glen Davis. I was thoroughly unimpressed by the way he ended last season, like anyone else with two working eyes. But I still enjoy rooting for him, despite his occasional bouts with immaturity (which sometimes lead to 4 a.m. fights with his best friend). If it still sounds like I hate Davis, I don’t. Seriously. No, really.
