“I’m Not Embarrassed”

The internet is agog over Big Baby’s emotional outburst (ok, he cried) during the Portland game.  Some have called it embarrassing… but not Big Baby.

“I’m not embarrassed at all. I’m emotional about the game. That’s one of my best features – being emotional, playing out there with passion. Sometimes it’s not always good passion. Sometimes it’s bad, but that’s just me being young. You have to learn how to funnel that emotion and keep it inside until you put it out.”

How do you not love that guy?  But Doc says there is a downside.

“The only thing I don’t like – and I told the team this and Baby this – is that if another player has to spend time calming you down, then you’re a distraction at that moment. We are an emotional team, and I want us to be an emotional team, but what I don’t want us to be is a distraction to each other while the game’s going on.”

And of course… don’t think the guys are going to let him get away with it.

“The message was delivered and (Davis) heard it eventually. They still love him and there’s been a lot of jokes since that in our locker room.”

Any good ones?

“None that I can say,” Rivers said. “No, it was good right after the game. They were all laughing about it.”
