The Clippers and Trail Blazers were locked into a fierce battle in Portland tonight, as the two teams were tied (along with the Spurs) for fourth place and the all important (though apparently not for the Clippers) home court advantage in the first round of the Western Conference playoffs.
Glen Davis punted a seat cushion into the stands during a timeout in Sunday's Clippers-Celtics game, and now the forward is out $15,000. Treat those chairs with respect, NBA players. (He got some good distance on it, though.)
Sitting in the front row at an NBA game must be baller, up until the point when 300-pound Glen "Big Baby" Davis crushes your face with his massive butt. To the GIFs!
I'm trying real hard to come up with possible words Bob Fitzgerald, the Warriors play-by-play man for CSN Bay Area, could have said instead of "Big Dick Baby" and I'm coming up short.
After Wednesday's win against the 76ers, Glen Davis and Nikola Vucevic carved a postgame turkey to maintain the Magic's tradition. Well, actually, Glen Davis ripped off one of the legs with his bare hands while Vucevic cut off a small piece to white meat to nibble on. Big Baby loves his turkey (and macaroni).
This—and not Carmelo Anthony's spy/Slayer roadie—is the reason parabolic microphones were invented. And the ball listened—it knows what's good for it.
New York stomped Orlando 108-86 last night in a game that was less close than even that score indicates. But lost in the narrative is a single moment that speaks volumes about love, betrayal, and an uneaten knish.
Is it depantses or pantses? Or just pants? Whatever it is, Glen Davis did it to himself a la Steve Lyons, and it earned him a technical foul—one about which he's visibly confused. [Sun Sports]
In this video produced by Glen Davis's marketing company (and via TBJ) we get a look at how Big Baby spent his time off. Knitting, popsicle stick construction, model kits and the like. It's clever, but we're more taken with the rubber-faced Davis's reaction shots. He has a future in silent movies.
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
Glen Davis had the opportunity this season — after the Celtics traded away Kendrick Perkins and while Shaq enjoys a paycheck and a warm seat as he eases into retirement — to earn real minutes and to anchor the second unit. He tried. He averaged about thirty minutes per game during the regular season, along with 12…
In a chippy game, Ray Allen needed seven stitches after an elbow from Jared Jeffries, and Carmelo Anthony got five of his own after running into Rajon Rondo. Glen Davis? He just wanted someone to kiss his boo-boo like the better players, so he flopped after a phantom elbow.
The NBA Finals are tied at two and now we know how Big Baby got his name. Yes, everyone saw that. Also: Ew.
Because no one reads the newspaper, and SportsCenter's anchors are too perky for this early in the morning, Deadspin combs the best of the broadsheets and the blogosphere to bring you everything you need to know to start your day.
The world probably believes it is witnessing what the sociologist Robert K. Merton calls a "self-fulfilling prophecy." But are we ignoring a blatant conflict-of-interest in the city that gave us Rod Blagojevich?
In a way, the undeniably blissful story of George Mason in this year's tournament has taken some focus off what would otherwise being a star-making week for LSU's Glen "Big Baby" Davis. The sophomore center is the type of unique creature almost exclusively associated with college basketball.
