NBA Rumors: Is Glen "Big Baby" Davis Done with Boston Celtics?
NBA Rumors Are Going Around That Big Baby Wore Out His Boston Welcome
Big Baby Davis has been a favorite of Celtics fans since he joined the team. His high-effort style of play and creative ways of scoring endeared him to the Garden faithful. And then 2011 happened.
In the playoffs, Davis struggled to guard Joel Anthony of the Miami Heat. Sure, he was playing out of position, but when you play the Heat, Anthony shouldn't be doing anything. The Celtics had enough to worry about with the Big Three that Joel Anthony shouldn't have even crossed their mind.
But he did, and the Celtics lost the series and the Heat are in the Finals.
Davis is an offensive genius—he has to be in order to get shots up against bigger players, but his lack of size and speed kill him on defense. High-effort players only go so far.
The Celtics are looking toward a post-Big Three era. If they pay Davis as a free agent, he will likely have to start after Garnett's contract expires next season. Glen Davis is not a starting power forward on a championship team.
With guys like Carl Landry and Samuel Dalembert on the free agent market this year, the Celtics will have other options.
