Now We Know Where Glen “Big Baby” Davis Gets His Nickname From

The Celtics were crushing the Blazers by 25 points on Friday night, so Doc Rivers decided to give his starters some rest and bring in the second line. That 25 point lead suddenly became just an 11 point lead with around six minutes left in the game, meaning the Celtics starters had to go back into the game. Kevin Garnett was none too pleased to have his replacements blow the lead and chewed them out for it. Glen “Big Baby” Davis is one of those second-teamers, and he didn’t take the tongue lashing too well. Check it out for yourself:

Man, I’ve seen athletes cry out of excitement when they’ve won, but I can’t remember the last time I saw one cry because he was verbally abused. I truly feel bad for Big Baby if he’s that sensitive. Who would’ve thought a beastly man standing 6’9″ and weighing nearly 300 pounds could have such thin skin? Video via You Been Blinded.

UPDATE: JS in the comments brings to our attention another crying incident — Manny Wright with the Dolphins thanks to Nick Saban.

    “I can’t remember the last time I saw one cry because he was verbally abused.”

    Larry, you must have other things on your mind. How can you forget an out of shape, not ready to practice Manny Wright being reduced to tears during a deserved tongue lashing from then Dolphins’ coach Nick Saban?

    I like how the broadcasters are praising Garnett for being such a great leader and right as they say it, KG throws the ball away. Pffffft. Hilarious timing. It’s stories like this that make me wish Dick Vitale did NBA games.
