Glen "Big Baby" Davis Proves That His Nickname Is Incredibly Appropriate [Video]
Everyone knows about the incredible intensity that Kevin Garnett brings to the game every time he steps onto the court. That's no surprise. Unfortunately, not everyone on the Celtics share that same intensity. In fact, some can't even handle it when KG brings it.
Glen "Big Baby" Davis is one of those guys who just can't handle it, as he proves here, as he pouts at the end of the bench after being lit into by KG.
This shows a few things, in my opinion.
#1: Big Baby is a big baby. There are a few guys in this league that have the right to say whatever they want to whomever they want, because everyone knows that they will do anything it takes to win every single basketball game they play. KG is one of those guys. He toiled for years in Minnesota, giving it 100% night in and night out, knowing that it was never going to end up in a championship, because he had no talent around him. Now, he's in Boston, the talent is there, and he's still doing the same thing he has always done. That brings me the the next point.
#2: Kevin Garnett is a great leader. Paul Pierce is the captain, and his affect on the team is immeasurable. But this team belongs to KG, as well. He and Pierce are a two headed beast, with Ray Allen playing the role of a quieter veteran presence. When someone needs to take over a basketball game, it will often be Pierce. But when someone needs to put someone in their place and/or fire up the troops, that's definitely KG.
I attended the Celtics-Magic game last Monday, and it was amazing how much KG talks. Seriously. He does not shut up on the court. While I'm sure this drives his opponents insane, it's absolutely incredible to watch. He pushes all the right buttons, and it's uncanny how he can cut right the the heart of an issue, like when he called out Corey Maggette, saying "way to get your numbers" after the Celtics after the Celtics beat the Warriors. Priceless.
