The Celtics are not shy. They typically let it be know how they feel about a player, or a team… and it's no different after yesterday's game.
"They can't beat us," said Boston's Glen Davis after Orlando, well, beat them.
Davis clarified his words moments later by adding, "they came out and played better than us today, but if you are talking about a seven-game series, I don't think they can beat us."
And then there's this
"I have been playing Dwight since 2004, when I was playing against him in the AAU circuit," Davis said. "His game hasn't really changed. It's not like has a jump shot, or a new spin move. He has the same moves since high school. He has the same post moves."
That part is true. Dwight, even though he worked with Hakeem Olojuwan over the summer, hasn't really added anything to his game. Kinda sad (but good for us) really. He could be the most dominant center we've ever seen if he just added some moves to free himself up on the post. KG echoed the same sentiments:
"I thought everybody who guarded him did a good job on him," Garnett said. "It is not like he has a ton of moves. He is either going to jump-hook you, spin-lob … he is very predictable."
When your best player is predictable, then it allows someone like Glen Davis… who isn't on Dwight's level… to talk smack and be right.
At least, you'd better be right, Baby.
