My guess is that it wouldn’t be too much fun to have Glen Davis tackle you: “Davis, the Celtics’ 6-foot-9, 290-pound forward, said he eventually wants to play in the NFL. ‘I will try it,’ said Davis, who’s on the injured list for six weeks with a broken right thumb sustained in a fight. ‘When I become an All-Star in the NBA, when I become a great player in the NBA, then I’ll try football. One of my dreams has always been to play football.’ Davis was a terrific two-way football player at University Laboratory High School in Baton Rouge, La., starring at defensive end, defensive tackle and tailback. But he chose to hang up his cleats and accept a basketball scholarship to LSU, where he became an All-American.”
