Glen ‘Big Baby’ Davis: King of Charges

Big Baby has absorbed so many charges this season, that some of his teammates want them added to the box scores. From the Boston Herald: “The NBA doesn’t list league leaders in taking charges, though it’s inconceivable that anyone could have more at this stage than Glen Davis. The Celtics reserve forward heads into tonight’s game against Washington with 16 in his first 10 games, for a hefty 1.6 average. ‘I do believe we need to start adding the charge to the stat sheet,’ said Ray Allen. ‘It seems like he’s getting two or three a game. So you know he’s going to have your back. He’s a great weak-side defender. When you think of guys who have a great effect on the game, charges is a category that nobody really talks about. A charge is giving up your body and sacrificing for your team. One of the philosophies is who is more important – who’s giving up more, the chicken or the pig? The pig is definitely that guy, because he’s giving up his whole body. Now I’m not calling Glen a pig, but he does give up his body.’”

    The chicken and the pig? WTF? “I’m not calling Glenn a pig” LOL Does this mean that Nate’s the chicken?

  • Bryan

    Maybe they should worry about teaching refs how to call charges and recognizing obvious flops. This is the most inconsistent call in the league

    I kinda want to like this guy, but he’s sucha douche

    We also don’t have diving for loose balls in the box score. There are plenty of stat nerds out there to tally all your unofficial stats. No need to clutter my box scores.

    Actually it’s part of the intangibles. Co-sign Brian, very inconsistent call, totally subjective

    I like the way Ray tlaks about his teammate…he ses the work they put in, and aknowledges that. The Celtics seem to have some great chemistry, something that is really important and is really overlooked.

    If charges are included in the stat sheet, we’ll have people flopping all over the place. Manu would have a field day.

  • Jumper

    If you include Charges, then you should include flops also,

    Much like Assists and Turnovers are tallied.

    A chicken gives up his whole body… Feet, neck…everything

    You won’t see Kobe taking any charges. Not when he can leak out

    Big baby is always trying to stay in the media some way. He’s not a shot blocker so he better be taking charges!

  • ClydeSays

    Gotta give the guy credit. He’s a big body and he hustles to get position.

    I dropped a fat charge of dook in my pants. Squishy.

    “This is the most inconsistent call in the league ”

  • Matt

    I think he’s talking bout bacon and eggs with the pig chicken reference

  • Groves

    Great Result if charges get added to a boxscore.. but a terrible decision to include the whole ray allen quote

  • barnabusb

    Hey guys, remember that time the league said they were going to start fining players for flopping? Yeeeaaah…. good times….

  • robb

    fat people suck

  • paul

    Glen Davis is a smart player, very aware that there are multiple facets to the game that are not caught on a stat sheet.

    Kobe Bryant is the worst flopper in the League. LeBron is a close second. I don’t mean it in the way of getting calls, but they’re just really really bad at it haha.

  • Drolfe

    But we eat chicken as well. Whole chickens. That analogy is weird.

  • rikson

    Just one more charge and he has a double-double… No, just no!

    The story of the chicken and the pig, for the unaware.
    The Chicken and Pig decided to have a party and invite their friends. They had to work out a menu. The Chicken says, “Well I think we should definitely have bacon and eggs, or maybe a ham omelets. I think our friends would love that, you don’t you agree pig/’
    The pig is distraught. He says to the chicken “Well, I can see why you like that menu. All you have to sacrifice are a few eggs, I’d have to sacrifice my entire body.”
    That’s the parable, and it’s supposed to be about how much we ask others to sacrifice particularly when we’re not meeting their level of sacrifice with our own actions.
