"I'm excited, I'm nervous," Davis said. "I feel a lot of emotions. It's a business. Would this be my first choice? Yeah. I want to win. That's the most important thing."
about his ties to the Celtics factoring into a business decision, Davis
said, "That's the hardest part, the camaraderie with the team just
being your first stop. You're always going to have a soft spot. But you
always realize that it's still a business. You just got to take the bad
with the good."
That's Glen Davis talking about this $$$ future. The kid deserves every penny. He's busted his ass and had one hard childhood. According to Marc Spears, one NBA general manager believes Davis will get $3 million-$5 million in his next contract. Is Big Baby worth 5 years, $20 million? You betcha. That's almost the same money the Celtics are paying Kendrick Perkins.
Both the Globe (Celtics Notebook) and Herald (Celtics Have Big Shopping List) examine the current roster and what the future holds for each player. There's also a lot of chatter about the age of the Big 3.
Speaking of age, Happy 33rd Birthday to Kevin Garnett.
And I'd like to welcome all the Denver fans pouring onto Red's Issel's Army. We'll have plenty of Nugget love and Laker hate throughout the day.
