Mike Petraglia has some primo quotes from Big Baby after today’s practice.
“I thrive at situations like that, being the underdog,” Davis began. “No, I’m not KG, I’m not at all. I’m Big Baby from LSU, Baton Rouge, Louisiana. I’m not the Big Ticket, I’m the Ticket Stub.”
“Don’t count the Ticket Stub out,” he added. “You might need the ticket to get into the game but you leave with the ticket stub because you’ll never forget this game. You’ll need it as a souvenir.”
It’s hard not to love this guy.
Look… We’re gonna miss KG. There’s no doubt about that. But Glen Davis can actually provide a little bit of what KG did… at least on offense. You have to guard him with a big guy, and you have to respect the jumper. If that opens even a tiny bit of space, it’s enough for Rajon Rondo to slice his way into the heart of the defense.
He’s not the shot-blocker KG is… no where near close. That’s gonna hurt on D. Part of the KG effect on D is having him and Perk just flat denying any easy buckets. So Baby, and Leon, will have to do it another way… by getting in the lane and taking charges.
Don’t count this kid out. People nationally will… but we know better.
I’m telling you… this is going to be a great story come mid-June.
