Glen Davis Wants Celtics Fans to Show Him ‘Love’ in Return to Boston

After the trade to Orlando prior to the season, Big Baby will make his return to Beantown for the first time tonight, in what promises to be an emotional affair for the big fella. From the Orlando Sentinel: “[Glen] Davis, 26, has a delightful, child-like demeanor, but he’s sometimes harder to figure out than a Sudoku puzzle. For instance, why did he pull down his trunks last Friday night during a game while complaining about a call? Lowering his drawers drew a technical foul, his third of the season, and thousands of You Tube hits. ‘It was just a reaction,’ he said. ‘I accidentally did that. It was an accident.’ He’s an unpredictable, emotional powder keg, and it doesn’t take much to light the fuse. Before the problem with keeping his pants on, Davis got into an altercation with a fan in Portland. Obviously, it’s taken only a sample size of being around Big Baby for the Magic to realize they often don’t know what to expect, including in his return to Boston. Davis, who spent his first four NBA seasons with the Celtics, was sent to the Magic (along with Von Wafer) in a sign-and-trade for Brandon Bass once the lockout ended. He said he might cry at TDGarden, especially if the Celtics show videos of the championship season. He said he hopes the Celtics fans ‘give me love…..I want to get this out of the way.’ … ‘We just have to let it play out,’ Dwight Howard said. ‘He’s emotional. He might cry. We’ll make sure we bring a big pacifier.’”

    This dude is hilarious! I don’t know if it’s his passion or a lack of maturity, but you cant ever say Big Baby doesnt love the game!

    Big Baby: The only love you’re getting is in the buffet line; now go stand behind Eddy Curry.

    Would anybody else pay to see a hot dog eating contest between Baby, Eddy Curry, and Zach Randolph?

    C’s fans promise a warm welcome if Orl promises a split of Mon/Thurs…

    It would be awesome if the crowd threw baby pacifiers onto the court on his first check-in. I wouldn’t put it past Boston fans either. We can be brutal.

    Glen was a a****** in the aftermath of the trade so that will make it worst for him.

    hilarious pacifier/crying/big/baby jokes aside, i think the fact that these ex-celtics are so emotional about their returns to Boston says a lot about the culture and bond of that 2008 championship team… Much like the 2004 Pistons..

    If / when the Heat manage to win a championship, would anybody imagine Joel Anthony or Mario Chalmers having the same attachment to the team and/or Lebron, Chris, and Dwayne? I doubt it…
