Glen Davis has only been a member of the Clippers for four games, but he’s already sensing something special about his new team.
Davis was bought out by the Magic and signed with Los Angeles less than two weeks ago, but played for Doc Rivers in Boston during his first four NBA seasons.
He was part of the championship team in 2008 as a rookie, and is drawing on that experience when explaining how he’s beginning to get a similar feeling about this current Clippers squad.
Davis knows this feeling because he’s been a part of it before. Playing for Coach Doc Rivers and the Boston Celtics, Davis won a title in his rookie season.
“It’s almost to the point of a supernatural belief,” Davis said. “We’re starting to believe, and not only believe, but put in the work. You combine the two, you’ve got a deadly combination of guys who can play the right way and who are just so athletic.
“When you mix athleticism and playing the right way every time with a great coach like Doc, the sky’s the limit.”
All of this came on the heels of the Clippers shellacking a team that was the Lakers in name only by 48 points.
The Clippers are a legitimate threat this season, mainly due to the improvement of Blake Griffin, along with the mere presence of Chris Paul and what is finally a competent coach on the sidelines in Rivers.
If Davis truly sees the championship chemistry forming after such a short time with the club, then that’s great. But more importantly, the results have been there to the point where we don’t need to be concerning ourselves with this type of nonsense.
