NBA finals, Lakers Celtics Game 4: If he's going to play like that, Big Baby can drool all he wants

Jun 11, 2010, 9:36 AM EDT

Davis_drool.jpgMake no mistake — Big Baby slobbered. He drooled. Just like a baby. On national television. For all the cameras to catch.

He doesn’t really care. And if he can play like that again in Game 5, the entire city of Boston will drool right along with him. (I think the Southies already do.)

“Let me tell you something right quick,” Glen “Big Baby” Davis said during his stand up routine and post-game press conference with Nate Robinson, televised on NBA TV. “When you’re in the moment, you’re in the moment.  If I slobber, snot, spit, please excuse me.  Kids, don’t do that.  Have manners and things like that.”

Didn’t surprise Doc Rivers.

“I’ve seen that action before. It’s usually after we run in practice,” Rivers said.

Rivers will drool on national television for another performance like that.

Davis provided what Kevin Garnett has not really this series — a strong inside presence to match the Lakers. He had 18 points on 7 of 10 shooting. Davis was matched up on Lamar Odom — since Andrew Bynum was sitting — and just dominated him inside. Davis has the size to just back Odom down, but he is amazingly fleet of foot and athletic for a man his size. You can see where the comparisons to Shaquille O’Neal came from at LSU.

Drool on, Big Baby. Drool on.

    Glen Davis is a lot of fun. He loves the game and brings exuberance to the court, therefore, the fans love him and he can drool all he wants. I, for one, love his primal scream because he is enjoying doing what he always dreamed about – performing on the big stage. He’s not superstar, he’s just Big Baby; yeah, Baby!

    Big Baby’s nickname should be changed to BB King (Big Baby King) because when he’s on the court he rules and give the Lakers the Blues!!!

    The Celtics should post Davis up on Odom,Bynum and Gasol. They talk about the length of the lakers how about the width of Davis. He can use his width, size and quichness to pound the Lakers big men and he makes his free throws. I just hope the referees don’t try to take away his agressiveness with silly fouls.

    I hope he slobbers on Kobe next time.
