Man, basketball is basketball,” [Glen Davis] said. “I play the Celtics way. They have to adjust to the Celtics way. I have no worries about that.
“But getting a feel for each (new) player, I have to do that. That’s why I try to interact with each one, try to see where they are as people, so that when I get onto the court it will translate into basketball terminology. The first group sets the chemistry, how we should play, within our limits and how the coach wants us to play.”
I'm honestly begging the Herald headline writers to stop with the puns. $5 someone high-fived someone else after coming up with that one too.
The atmosphere around the Celtics is an irresistable force. It really is like the Patriots…. or the mob. Once you're in, you're in. And you follow their rules.
Although I'm not sure Baby is the first interaction we want those guys having. Maybe start slow… get them Ray Allen first.. then maybe Pierce. After that, hit them with a dose of seriousness from KG and then maybe… MAYBE… you get them with Glen Davis and his special brand of psychosis.
That's just my suggestion. Its like the Red's Army offices… where Chuck is generally the last one we introduce the interns to. And even then he's kept in a Hannibal Lechter type cell and heavily supervised. You know… just to be safe.

Members of the Celtics mingled with President Obama Tuesday night in a private meeting during a fundraiser at the Museum of Fine Arts. The meeting was not open to the media, including the White House traveling press corps. According to the Celtics, the gathering was optional and not all players attended.
"We were thrilled to visit with the President," Celtics co-owner and managing partner Stephen Pagliuca said in a statement through the team. "He spoke about the Boston Celtics unselfish play and teamwork. It was inspiring for us to hear those words and we told the President we hope to see him in the White House in the fall after the NBA Finals."
I'm sure Baby discussed in detail the issues surrounding Libya… or perhaps a comprehensive solution to the labor unrest in Wisconsin.
How much do you want to bet the word "cheeseburger" came up in the conversation?
