Big Baby Is Struggling Through The Mirror Stage

The last time we checked in on Glen "Big Baby" Davis's development, he had lost track of himself — a classic case of méconnaisance, according to the limited memory I have of my intro to lit theory class. Now, as Danny Ainge declares his annual Boston Armageddon, Davis is confronting new trauma: what will Glen Davis be if Glen Davis is not a Celtic? The hope is that he will be Glen Davis:

I just want to make sure I'm Glen Davis wherever I'm at. I think I can be Glen Davis wherever. It just depends on the system, the people around the system, who's going to let Glen Davis be Glen Davis, not make Glen Davis something they think he should be.

Ah, the enduring pursuit of the ideal ego. We're pulling for you, Baby. We've all been there.
