Not sure I’d have Orlando’s Glen Davis carve your Thanksgiving turkey (VIDEO)

Nov 28, 2013, 9:35 AM EDT

Every year on the game before Thanksgiving, the Orlando Magic have their stars of the game carve a turkey as part of the post game television interview… yes, it’s a little strange, but if John Madden can give out odd numbers of Turkey legs on Thanksgiving, the Magic can have players carve a bird.

Although I’m not sure that I would call what Glen Davis did there “carving.”

Davis and Nikola Vucevic deserved to be the players of the game Wednesday — they combined for 40 points on 19-of-28 shooting, 21 rebounds and four blocks, leading the Magic to a win — which means they got the carving honors. For Davis, that meant just ripping off a leg and eating it. Vucevic carefully carved off a slice, all the while looking like a guy who did not grow up eating turkey in Switzerland and Belgium (where he spent is formative years).

Next year, they need to have some stuffing out there, too.

    It was nice to get a win, you have to cherish them when your team decides to tank.

    You think we are tanking? I don’t know if I’m entirely sold on that. We are 9th in the east and only a game or two back from being a playoff team. It’s a down year in the east but I wouldn’t say we are tanking, although it is early yet.

    @cjispro – Players don’t tank. They have no incentive to do so. To some extent, they are all fighting for playing time and the next contract. Management, sometimes via coaching decisions, does tank. Recall the recent game against Dallas which was a close game with Jameer playing well. Then Vaughan decides to sit Jameer and use Oladipo as PG for the last 15 minutes. Magic lose by 8. Hmmmm….
