So yesterday Glen Davis, spent part of media day complaining about his role and wondering why the Celtics have brought in Rasheed and the O'Neal brothers the past two seasons (I guess he believes he deserves to play 40 plus minutes. When briefed today on this Doc, wasn't happy. ESPN Boston
"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."
Personally I like when Doc lays down the law. The only thing I'll say is he tends to have a much louder bark and tougher bite with the 20-somethings than he does with the vets. Regardless, everyone needs to be on Team Ubuntu right now and Baby's comments yesterday were poorly timed to say the least. My guess is that Davis will get the message and fall back in line now.
