Glen ‘Big Baby’ Davis at His Lowest Weight Since the 8th Grade

Orlando Magic forward Glen Davis isn’t the man he used to be — he’s much smaller now. According to “Big Baby”, he hasn’t been this light on his feet since he was a teenager. From the Magic’s website: “When Davis fractured the fifth metatarsal in his left foot last January on an innocent-looking play and subsequently had to endure two surgeries and 10 months of inactivity, he knew that he had to drop some weight off his massive 6-foot-9 frame if he was going to continue playing in the NBA. This wasn’t exactly an overnight revelation for Davis, who has always lived life as a big man and has been in pursuit of ways to shed pounds for years. Fresh off a spectacular 33-point effort spread over 50 minutes Tuesday in Philadelphia, Davis will take the Madison Square Garden court Friday night as slim as he’s been in, well, almost a lifetime. ‘Eighth grade. Yeah, really, it’s the lightest I’ve been since the eighth grade,’ said Davis, seemingly shocked himself. ‘This time it’s consistent (with the weight loss). There have been times when I’ve lost a lot of weight, but I’d just gain it right back. But as far as consistently staying at this weight and staying down, it’s been since the eighth grade when I was this thin.’”

    While I’m glad he’s lost weight, he still needs to gain more intelligence upstairs.

    Well, he still looks pretty big. Must have been a real porker in the 8th grade assuming he was considerably shorter.

    You mean being fat and a pro basketball player isn’t enough for you to want to lose weight? Come on Big Baby. You can be fat all you want when you retire. When you’re still playing at least be in reasonable shape.
