"No, I'm not even worried about Glen Davis," Rivers said when asked if he had a conversation with the player. "I think he's living up to [his nickname of 'Big Baby']. I didn't even hear it, someone just told me. I'm not that concerned."
Asked if he could understand why Davis might feel uneasy given the addition of two former All-Stars to the frontcourt, Rivers said he shouldn't and sent a friendly warning shot.
"Let me put it like this: If Baby doesn't know his role by now, he's going to be sitting down a lot," said Rivers. "I'll just leave it that simple."
Bam. How's that big pile of STFU taste, Glen?
I'm gonna be honest here: This is no big deal, but it feels bigger because of how Glen Davis was acting in the offseason. Yes, I get he's a big, goofy guy. But if you're gonna be a big goof and throw all your craziness on the internet, don't show up on the first day and bitch about your role… or even SOUND like you're bitching about your role. Show up on the first day… smile and nod… give canned answers… and go to practice and go about your business.
I'm sorry, but this is just common sense. This is how crap like this gets blown out of proportion. It's a complete lack of self-awareness. It'll all be over in a day or two… but Doc shouldn't have even had to address that or toss out the threat.
By the way… follow that link for Chris Forsberg's video with Doc where he talks about how the guys aren't in "Celtics" shape… how KG and Shaq looked… and some other notes from day 1.
