Big Dummy

...unlike Glen "Big Baby" Davis, who apparently broke his thumb "in an altercation with a former college teammate." Davis needs surgery to repair the damaged digit and could miss up to two months. Oh, and he might be suspended, too. Said Celtics co-owner Wyc Grousbeck:

"We'll deal with it. I'm not going to call him 'Big Baby' anymore. He's Glen. He needs to act like Glen. We'll decide what to do once I talk to him, once we talk to him today. It's very likely he'll be suspended. And he'll have some time to think about it. It'll be a message, a teachable moment for the rest of the guys on the team."

Uh, sure, Wyc. But...who exactly on the Celtics needs to be taught not to injure themselves in fights with former college teammates? I sort of assumed that was a given, but maybe not. Also, I'm sure that calling him "Glen" instead of "Big Baby" will totally force him to grow up. In the meantime, I have a new entry for the Basketbawful Dumb Injury Hall of Shame.

OK, with that facial expression and pose, I wonder what is happening off-camera in that picture?

...then again, maybe I don't want to know.

Go back a few posts. Now we know who's arm is in that "O!" shot. Big Baby was just returning the favor...

That's exactly what I was afraid of, BadDave.

In other news, Joey Belle would like to be called Albert.

Anyone know who the ofrmer teammate is?

In unrelated NBA news, Shaq's running his mouth again. (I guess he has to let his mouth run these days since his body sure as hell can't do it anymore) There are entirely too many quotable lines in this interview. And he talks about Kazaam. How can you not read this?

Apparently, according to Yahoo news, Big Baby was coming back from celebrating his girlfriend's birthday. His old teammate was DRIVING the car when that guy punched Big Baby. Glenn then countered with his own haymaker, breaking his fist in the process. LoL. That's what it all boils down to. L-O-freakin'-L.

Lord Kerrance, I give thy Baby's teammate be--Shawn Bridgewater. Some high school teammate. Whatever.

WHYYYYY? Damn you. Damn you all. Why must I love what hurts me so? Damn the Clippers curse. Damn Bill Simmons and the rest of ESPN for bringing the jinx upon us. "They could be good! I like them to make the playoffs! Blake Griffin is really coming along!"

/killing self now.

The mechanized "dih-fince" chant from the PA system at the Q is excruciatingly stiff! Kinda like Shaq out there.

Blogger chris said...
AND...in news about as shocking as Blake Griffin getting hurt...Shaq has just missed his first two free throws as a Crab.

Blogger chris said...
Did anybody see that epic giveaway from Shaq Fu (after a board) to Rondo, which ended up being one of the more bizarre possessions of the night? SO MUCH mediocrity in that sequence!

In-game analysis on Baron Davis: "He has only played all 82 games once in his career and it just so happened to be a contract year."

Despite the win, if I was a Celtics fan I'd be a bit worried for one reason alone: KG doesn't look good at all. It might be just rust though, that's definitely plausible. But it didn't look like KG's timing was off, it looked to me like he had hardly any of his athleticism and explosiveness out there. I had to keep reminding myself to watch what he was doing because for long stretches he was just... invisible. Boston's so loaded that they'll be able to hide whatever shortcomings KG might have (if he's indeed gonna continue to play like this), but against Orlando or LA/SA in the playoffs, they're gonna need him to be what he used to be if they want to have a chance to win.

If I was a Cleveland fan I'd be plain worried cause that team doesn't look to be good enough to be considered one of the 5 "true contenders" this year. It's the same ol' story: LeBron and a bunch of minnies. Shaq looks to be a really, really poor fit for that team, and Mike Brown is totally clueless about what to do (which is why once again the offense is to give it to LeBron at the top of the key and let him create everything). Orlando & Boston will lay treadmarks all over the Cavs if this is all they've got.

The Lakers looked either disinterested or just out of sorts due to the ring ceremony (or Artest's hair or Odom's new bride or take your pick). LA's bench was plain awful tonight, though that'll probably change a bit when Gasol comes back and Odom is a reserve again. Nevertheless, as I said after the first preseason game, if Artest is gonna be that unselfish and Bynum is gonna be that dominant, it's gonna be very, very hard to beat this Laker team. As always though, it was against the Clippers so take it all with a grain of salt. Too bad due to the uber-cushy Laker schedule to start the year, it's really gonna be a while before we'll get to see what they're made of (unless they collapse, that is, then we'll know they're just way overrated).

Greg Oden - 26 minutes, 2 points, 5 fouls, 7 turnovers. Combined with the Vanilla Godzilla and LaMarcus "5 years/$70m" Aldridge, the supposedly imposing Blazer frontline was only able to score 15 points combined against a miniscule Houston frontline of Chuck Hayes, Luis Scola and Carl Landry.

Wasn't Dallas supposed to be much improved this year?
