I just want to make sure Iâ€™m Glen Davis wherever Iâ€™m at. I think I can be Glen Davis wherever. It just depends on the system, the people around the system, whoâ€™s going to let Glen Davis be Glen Davis, not make Glen Davis something they think he should be.
From a column by the terrible Dan Shaughnessy.
I’d never heard this story, but it just adds to the reason Kendrick Perkins was my second favorite Celtic. Big Baby Davis, is of course, first.

My favorite part about this video is that before Tracy said Sarah Palin was good masturbation material, he was very clearly going to say, “Both of them at the same time.” Everything Tracy Jordan Said indeed.
In TNT’s apology, they interestingly criticized Tracy, but not the hosts who set him up.

Here’s a video of Big Baby Davis watching “Dunks of the Week”. Click the Big Baby Davis tag below to see some more BBD awesomeness. I love this guy.
If you thought I wouldn’t post a video Big Baby Davis made of himself dancing to a rap song, you don’t know me at all. AT ALL.
Last week, it was reported that 7’7″ Sudanese basketball player Manute Bol passed away at the age of 47. Among several interesting tidbits about his life, Bol is also credited with popularizing the phrase ‘my bad’.
-St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Jan. 10, 1989: When he [Manute Bol] throws a bad pass, he’ll say, “My bad” instead of “My fault,” and now all the other players say the same thing.
-USA Today, Jan. 27, 1989: After making a bad pass, instead of saying “my fault,” Manute Bol says, “my bad.” Now all the other Warriors say it too.
Here’s a feature about Manute from the SI Vault, which I continue to suggest is one of the better resources on the web.
Thanks Andy and Jonah.
Didn’t see a whole lot of crazy from Rasheed Wallace this year. He actually didn’t do much of anything until the playoffs. After they were over, he wanted to talk to referee Joey Crawford. Anyone know more?
