Glen “Big Baby” Davis was known for having some temper tantrums during his years playing in the NBA, but the one he had on Sunday was unlike any we have seen before.
Davis, who is a co-captain for the Power, was ejected early in Sunday’s game against the Trilogy for arguing a foul call. After he was tossed, he proceeded to pump up the crowd, strip down and throw his jersey and shorts to the fans.

Keep in mind this is the same Davis who was once sent to the locker room with security after an argument with his own coach, so you never know what he’s going to do after getting tossed. The fans seemed to love it, and that’s all that really matters.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
