Glen Davis reportedly named suspect in alleged parking lot attack

Glen Davis

Glen “Big Baby” Davis was named a person of interest for his role in a parking lot attack that left a man hospitalized earlier this month, and now the former NBA star is being looked at as a suspect.

TMZ reports that Davis has been named a suspect in the felony assault with a deadly weapon case, as it is believed he attacked a man in a parking lot outside a West Hollywood nightclub on April 8 and slammed him down on the concrete. The victim reportedly suffered multiple broken bones and a broken tooth and needed to be placed on a ventilator.

Several witnesses identified Davis as the attacker after he was supposedly confronted by a man he nearly hit with his vehicle. Police are planning to present the case to the District Attorney in hopes of having felony charges filed, according to TMZ.

This is not the first time Davis has faced potential legal trouble in the past two months, though this case is far more serious in nature than the last.

Former NBA star Glen Davis is reportedly being investigated for his possible role in a parking lot fight that left a man hospitalized over the weekend.

Law enforcement sources told TMZ that witnesses spotted Davis driving erratically in a parking lot outside Factory nightclub in West Hollywood on Sunday. Davis was supposedly confronted by a man he nearly hit with his vehicle, and witnesses say he got out of the car and attacked the man, throwing him to the ground before leaving the scene.

The victim was transported to a nearby hospital and treated for fractures in his face and ribs and a broken tooth. TMZ shared a photo that allegedly showed the man lying in a hospital bed hooked up to several wires.

This is not the first time Davis has faced potentially legal trouble in the past month.

Big Baby Davis responds to arrest report on Instagram

Glen Davis

Former NBA player Glen “Big Baby” Davis responded via Instagram on Saturday to a report that he was arrested on drug charges last month.

This past week, it was reported by a television news station in Baltimore that Davis was arrested at a hotel with a large amount of marijuana. Nearly $100,000 in cash was also present.

On Saturday, Davis posted a video to his Instagram account of himself on an airplane sitting next to briefcase full of cash. He urged the public to not believe everything on the internet and said he will have his day in court. Be warned as Davis used some explicit language.

Davis spent nine seasons in the NBA and most recently played with the Clippers in 2015. He was selected No. 35 overall in the 2007 NBA Draft out of LSU.

Davis was involved in another incident at a hotel in 2013. He was not arrested as a result of that altercation.

Report: Big Baby Davis arrested with large amount of marijuana

Glen Davis

Former NBA big man Glen Davis is back in the news again, but it is definitely not in the positive sense this time around.

Brian Kuebler of WMAR-TV in Baltimore reported on Friday that Davis, famously nicknamed “Big Baby,” was arrested in February on drug charges after being caught at a Hampton Inn in Aberdeen, Maryland with a large amount of marijuana. Court records showed that the hotel’s owner smelled marijuana coming from Davis’ room on Feb. 7 and, upon knocking on the door, was told by a person inside to “f— off.” Police were then called and the former NBA champion gave his signed consent for the room to be searched.

“They recovered 126 grams of marijuana,” Aberdeen Police Lieutenant William Reiber was quoted as saying. “In addition to that there was a brief case that contained 92,164 dollars of U.S. currency along with a ledger that contained language which is consistent with someone involved in the sale and distribution of narcotics.”

Kuebler’s report adds that Davis, who told officers that he was in town visiting family in Harford County, Maryland, was arrested, then indicted weeks later on seven counts of drug possession and distribution. He is due in court early next month, but his attorney says Davis “adamantly maintains his innocence” and is looking forward to “clear[ing] his good name.”

Davis, 32, played in the NBA for nine seasons, winning a title in 2008 with the Boston Celtics. He has been out of the league since 2015 however.

Davis was also involved in another dubious hotel incident back in 2013 when he was with the Orlando Magic but was not arrested as a result of it.

Glen Davis eyeing NBA comeback, willing to play in G League to do so

Glen Davis

Big Baby is looking to make a big bounceback.

Glen Davis told Marc J. Spears of The Undefeated on Monday that he is eyeing a return to the NBA and is willing to play in the G League to make it happen.

“I want to play. That’s my next step,” said Davis. “Whatever I have to do to show I can play the game at a high level still and help a team win, I will do. I know it’s going to be a process because I haven’t played in two years. But I feel like I’m at the prime in my game and I still have a lot to offer.

“I am considering the G League,” he continued. “It’s a great opportunity to show all 30 teams that I can play without getting hurt. They can see what I can still do. This is the best opportunity to make my steps back to the NBA.”

Davis, still just 31 years old, last played in the 2014-15 season, averaging 4.0 points and 2.3 rebounds in 12.2 minutes a game for the LA Clippers. He’s kept somewhat in the news since then however with feuds and warm takes alike.

The LSU product is more of a big body down low than anything, and sort of one-dimensional skillset seems to have become all but obsolete. Nevertheless, if Davis feels he still has something to offer at the NBA level and is even willing to play in a developmental league to prove it, more power to him.

Big Baby Davis: There is ‘no voice on the Clippers’

Glen Davis

Glen “Big Baby” Davis closed his 9-season NBA career as a member of the Los Angeles Clippers. But he has a little bad blood with the team.

Davis has missed the last two seasons after undergoing ankle surgery two years ago. He believes the Clippers mishandled him, leading to the injury. Recently he was a guest on “Tiki and Tierney on CBS Sports Radio and CBS Sports Network” and talked about why the Clippers have struggled to break through despite their talent.

“There is no voice on the Clippers. There’s no voice on the Clippers,” Davis told hosts Tiki Barber and Brandon Tierney. “Nobody did that. Nobody did that. There’s those intangible things that we need to win, that you need to win, that you can’t get done because of the selfishness and just the lack of understanding of giving yourself for the next guy next to you. There’s none of that there.”

Davis also talked about why Doc Rivers succeeded when he was the head coach in Boston.

“It’s the players that he had in Boston. He had KG (Kevin Garnett), who was policing the team. Everybody was falling within the team guidelines. Everybody held everybody accountable on that team. KG was a true example of sacrifice. He didn’t care about points when he came (from) Minnesota. He didn’t care about getting (shots). He just cared about making sure that people do the right thing every single day – and it was contagious.”

Davis has been in headlines lately after getting into it with Austin Rivers, his former teammate, who is also Doc’s son.

Glen Davis fires back after being ripped by Austin Rivers

It’s safe to say Glen “Big Baby” Davis and the Rivers family are not going to be sitting down to a nice dinner together anytime soon.

Davis spent most of his eight-year NBA career playing under Doc Rivers, but they ended up parting ways on bad terms when the big fella left the Los Angeles Clippers. Rivers’ son Austin, who was teammates with Davis in L.A., said things between Davis and his father went south because Big Baby was “constantly out of shape,” late for work and didn’t remember plays.

Here’s what Davis thinks about that:

Davis recently said that the father-son dynamic between Doc and Austin created resentment in the Clippers locker room. He also had some interesting reasons for why his relationship with Doc soured. Now all we need to do is get Doc’s side of the story to really heat things up.

Austin Rivers rips ‘out of shape’ Glen Davis over comments about him and his father

Austin Rivers

Austin Rivers is letting his former LA Clippers teammate have it.

In an appearance on FOX Sports 1’s “Undisputed” on Wednesday, Rivers was asked about ex-teammate Glen “Big Baby” Davis’ feud with his father, Clippers head coach Doc Rivers, and Davis’ recent comments that the Rivers father-son dynamic had caused resentment in the Clippers locker room.

“That’s a bunch of BS,” said the younger Rivers. “That’s just Baby talking … I’ve heard Baby say to me multiple times, ‘Oh man, you know why Doc is so good, Doc is so great.’ And then now he’s saying bad things about him. It’s a huge contradiction. And I don’t have a problem with Baby, me and Baby have always been cool, but it makes no sense to what he’s doing.

“Whatever he has between him and my pops, and you know Pops said the jokes about his weight and stuff like that,” continued the Clippers guard. “But let me ask you something. If someone is constantly out of shape, late, don’t remember plays, how the hell are you supposed to play? I don’t know where that even goes with the team. And that has nothing to do with him coming at my father. I really don’t care, that’s between him and my pops.

“But as far as him talking about me being my coach’s [son], that’s never had a play on the team,” Rivers said. “I’ve earned every stripe I’ve gotten, earned every playing time. That’s just him talking out the side of his neck. I don’t even understand where that comes from, so I’m not even paying that no mind.”

Rivers and Davis were teammates on the Clippers during the 2014-15 season, but Davis played under the elder Rivers in Boston for four seasons prior to that. Davis recently explained his side of the feud with Doc, but he may have started a new one with Austin in the process.

Glen Davis explains his side of feud with Doc Rivers

Glen “Big Baby” Davis spent much of his eight-year NBA career playing under Doc Rivers, but the relationship between the two soured toward the end of their time together. While there are many theories as to why, Davis says the falling out ultimately came down to one thing.

Doc didn’t care that he was playing hurt.

Davis signed with the Clippers in February 2014 after he was bought out by the Magic. After averaging 12.2 points and 6.3 rebounds per game in two-plus seasons with Orlando, he never became a big contributor in L.A. But Davis told Colin Cowherd on Wednesday that he had a very legitimate excuse for averaging just 2.9 points and 1.9 rebounds during the 2015 playoffs.

“I broke my ankle Game 6 against the Spurs. I played Game 7,” Davis explained. “When we played Houston the next series, I’m telling Doc my ankle’s hurt. He’s telling me, ‘Suck it up, you’re not playing the way you need to play.’ In my exit meeting he told me I didn’t play the way I needed to play this year and lost focus against Houston.

“I go the whole summer not even knowing my ankle’s broke, but I’m like something’s wrong. We won a championship together (with the Celtics), I broke my ankle, and you just don’t say anything. You just say, ‘Oh, Glen, well sorry…’ Nothing. No phone call, no nothing. That really turned me the wrong way.”

It’s unclear why Davis never got an X-ray or an MRI if he was in significant pain. What we do know is that there was an incident between him and Rivers during the previous season, so there’s probably more to the story than Rivers being disappointed with the way Davis played down the stretch in 2015. It seems like the issues were brewing long before that.

Glen Davis: Ray Allen should be invited to 2008 Celtics reunion

Glen Davis is the latest member of the 2007-08 Celtics to speak out against Ray Allen’s exclusion from reunion festivities.

In an appearance on FOX Sports 1’s “Undisputed” on Friday, Davis said that he believes Allen should be included in the planned 10-year anniversary celebration for the team’s 2008 championship.

“Yes, Ray should be invited to the reunion,” said the now 31-year-old Davis, per James Herbert of CBS Sports. “He was a big part of that team. You think about situations — Ray got us out of a lot of situations. Yeah, you should invite the man. I would love to see Ray. I haven’t seen him in a long time.

“We were an extremely close-knit basketball team,” he went on. “I just think when [Rajon] Rondo started to appear and started to [say], ‘Hey, here I am,’ it wasn’t a mutual, ‘Hey, this is our new shining star’ with Ray. It was more, ‘Hey this is K.G. [Kevin Garnett], Paul [Pierce], Ray Allen’s team.’ And I just feel like it could’ve been stopped. Whatever that [was], it could’ve been stopped.”

Davis was a key reserve on the Celtics 2008 title team as one of their first bigs off the bench. His comments come the day after Celtics GM Danny Ainge, the architect of that team, said that he was “surprised” at Allen being snubbed.

With Davis’ remarks, it’s worth remembering that just because the leaders of that team (e.g. Rondo, Garnett) feel a certain way, that doesn’t necessarily mean everybody else on the team shares the same sentiment as well.
