TAG: Big Baby
Contrary to popular belief, Derek Fisher played for two other teams before being traded by the Lakers at the trade deadline March 15.
Even if he’s never been considered L.A.’s star, Fisher’s five title rings make you think “Lakers” instinctively upon hearing his name. It’s not that his three years in Golden State and Utah should be totally cast aside â€” he did pilot the Jazz to the conference finals in 2007, mind you, with his chilling mid-game entrance. It’s just his legacy, besides his headband-over-ears look, is that of a Laker.
Which makes tonight’s game against Oklahoma City, his new team, all the weirder for Kobe Bryant. Read More »

Have you ever wondered what a day in the life of Glen Davis would be? Well, after he taught us how to Dougie on TwitVid, Big Baby has switched over to Ustream to give us a full view. Some highlights include eating cereal with a huge spoon, wearing a t-shirt turban and a backpack with no shirt on and at least one lip-sync dance session. Need I say more?
Heading into last year’s offseason, things were looking pretty good for Glen “Big Baby” Davis. He was coming off a stellar postseason where he averaged 15.8 points and 5.6 rebounds. The Celtics rewarded him with a two-year, $6.5 million contract. Davis also made one of the biggest and most memorable postseason plays when he hit a baseline jumper in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals to beat the Magic. But since then, things have gone south for Big Baby. Read More »
He doesn’t know exactly when or what position he would play, but one thing is certain: Big Baby wants to play in the NFL. Davis, who has been on the injured list ever since he hurt his thumb in a fight, was a star football player at University Laboratory High School in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. He was the school’s defensive end, defensive tackle and tailback. He recently told ESPN that he wants to pursue his dream of playing pro football. Read More »
Glen Davis is in free agent limbo, and he’s not happy about it one bit. He’s talked with the Celtics and a few other teams, but the restricted free agent, who is looking for mid-level exception money ($5.8 million), doesn’t really have much going on right now.
And Big Baby is not happy about it at all. Especially since the Celtics just went out and signed his clone (even if Glen doesn’t think so).
The Boston Herald collected some of Glen’s tweets about his contract situation: Read More »
While word surfaced this week that the Nets were among the teams interested in Glen Davis, one interesting trade proposal came to light: Davis, J.R. Giddens and Gabe Pruitt to the Pistons for Jason Maxiell and a first-round pick. Read More »
While this offseason continues to show the NBA’s rich getting richer, there are still a few loose ends to attend to. Perhaps I’m just getting greedy after acquiring Rasheed Wallace and Marquis Daniels, but if the Celtics definitely want to make good on Kevin Garnett‘s back-to-back promise, they have to ink a deal with Big Baby.
