Free agent big man Glen “Big Baby” Davis and current Los Angeles Clippers’ head coach Doc Rivers won a title together with the Boston Celtics back in 2008. However, the veteran power forward did not give his former coach much credit upon appearing on Chris Broussard’s podcast, “In The Zone.”

“What Doc had in ’08 was special and he was lucky as hell. Lucky as hell. The year before that they was wearing trash bags. But then the next year they win it, now he is one of the best coaches ever? I’m just not feeling that. You know what I mean? You give credit to [Kevin Garnett]. You give credit to Paul Pierce. You give credit to Ray Allen. Those are the guys who made sure whatever Doc needed to be done, got done.”

Davis wasn’t quite done there, either.

“And see now it’s easy for Doc to do his job. And then you give credit to [Celtics’ general manager] Danny Ainge. That’s the one you give credit to. Because I know multiple times [Ainge] had to talk to Doc, just to say ‘Hey, Doc, leave ’em alone. Hey, Doc, ease up.'”

Good lord, “Big Baby” throwing some serious shade at his former head coach! Even if the aforementioned statements have any truth to them, comments of that nature will surely hinder an attempt made by Davis to return to the NBA.
