Glen Davis: ‘I’ll Be Back Next Game’

It’s up to the team doctors to make the final call, but for what it’s worth, an angry and defiant Big Baby told the media that he’s not missing Game 6 despite his scary concussion last night. From the Boston Herald: “If there was a question whether Glen Davis would miss any additional time after suffering a concussion last night, the Celtics forward answered it with a brief self-diagnosis after the Game 5 loss to the Magic. ‘Point blank, I ain’t speaking. I’m all right. I’ll be back next game,’ Davis said before puzzlingly letting an expletive fly. “That’s all you need to print.’ As the media horde crowded around Davis’ locker, a trainer stepped in and said Davis wasn’t in good enough condition to talk to reporters. The bright lights and attention from different directions are generally not good for a recently concussed individual.”

    I swear I could hear Chris Tucker in the backround as they replayed the hit In Slo mo. Nevermind the Doc, Baby needs to consult with his wobbly a$$ knees & shattered chin.

    No way docs should clear him to play. I love the announcers wondering if he was perhaps dehydrated.

    Howard is straight dirty. Then all that god talk. What an infant.

    If Carmelo Anthony got hit like that, he would have played dead for an hour if he didn’t get a foul called for him. Now, that’s how you deal with someone who gets knocked out. Further proof that Carmelo Anthony was clowning that night.

    missed that play, but damn dwight hurts a lot of guys

    forget about dehydration, dude was just weak with hunger. there is no God and the Celtics will win this at home.

    @The Philosopher, you don’t know how the injury affected them. Just because Melo’s collision didn’t look that serious from our POV, didn’t mean he was faking his reaction.

  • MikeC.

    @LA Huey – I agree. Melo may have been milking it for attention, I’m not his brain so I don’t know. I’ve been hit in the head with a 2×4 (my brother and I used to have disagreements) and only got a lump with no knock-out. I’ve taken light elbows to the head and been KO’d. You never know how you’re going to react to a hit to the head.

    Depends on level on Concussion. In New Zealand its normally a 2-3 week standown if you get concussed from Rugby or Rugby League. Mind you they are heavy contact sports alah American Football.

    Good Call vtrobot. What god?

    @La Huey: You’re absolutely right, I don’t know how it affected them. I’m sure the professional personnel present at the time didn’t know either. So, why risk letting a player finish a game when he has a ‘possible’ concussion? The way Anthony laid himself out there, one HAS to at LEAST think, “maybe we should take him to the locker room, and don’t let back into the game” for precautionary reasons. With head/neck/spine injuries… I mean, Davis left the game, and he was conscious enough to try to get up. They didn’t let him back in. Carmelo acted like he was dead…THEN FINISHED THE GAME. Then had 40 something the next night after he was ‘knocked out’. He wasn’t knocked out.

    Marquis Daniels had a similar injury to Carmelo Anthony’s. He didn’t finish the game either. I mean………..
