Glen Big Baby Davis played with both Rajon Rondo and Chris Paul during his NBA career, which makes him somewhat qualified to speak on them as teammates. And Davis has a strong opinion about which one is the better teammate.
Davis said on Instagram that Chris Paul is a “very bad teammate.”

The debate arose after Rondo and Paul got into a fight during Saturday night’s Rockets-Lakers game. Rondo was accused of spitting on CP3, which led to the two trading punches. Both received suspensions for their roles in the fight.
In the aftermath, Rondo defended himself and said Paul was a bad teammate. Davis agrees.
Davis, who played nine seasons in the NBA, spent his first four seasons with Rondo on the Boston Celtics. They were extremely successful at the time, winning a championship in Davis’ rookie season. By comparison, Davis spent the final two seasons of his career with the Clippers and was not very good at the time, so it’s no surprise he did not have a positive impression of playing with CP3 on the Clippers.
Ben DuBose put it in perspective.
On the Glen Davis IG comment regarding Rondo and CP3: Big Baby played two out-of-shape years with LAC at the end of his career, 13 mpg or less, in a role basically mandated by Doc Rivers and one that didn't work to the benefit of the team. I wouldn't use him as a barometer.

Davis was even feuding with Doc Rivers by that point, so you can take his opinion lightly. Still, his comments add to the drama surrounding the CP3/Rondo feud.
