Kelly Dwyer on Yahoo’s Ball Don’t Lie just kills Big Baby today.
Now, while this may seem like a reaction to Davis’ 1-12 shooting night, you have to understand that I pride myself on trying to be even keel with these things. That said, Davis is killing the Celtics. Destroying this team.
His PER on the season is around 8, which puts him amongst the worst rotation players in the NBA, and PER doesn’t account for his defensive attributes. Which are awful. Ruddy awful. And I just refuse to buy the excuse that Doc Rivers can’t play Kevin Garnett and Leon Powe on the court together.
What’s interesting in that last link to 82Games.com, the best 2-man combo on the team is Brian Scalabrine and Ray Allen… so take that for what it’s worth. But cruise down Big Baby’s line and the only real positive you’ll see is when he’s on the floor with Garnett.
I will echo one thing that was said in our live blog yesterday: What did Leon do to not get minutes?
