You still haven't addressed the "cool" relationship Doc & Davis had ... All of a sudden they are gonna "get along?"
i would believe davis signs with the clips when i see it. the clips may be trying to pound their chest and scare off other suitors. doc rivers was never a coach that made sense to me. however, maybe the horrific, epileptic-robot play of brandon bass made doc realize that davis wasn't that bad.
i don't know, i was never any good at analyzing megalomaniacs like rivers and davis, despite my enjoyment of his hustle style of play and the super glue he was to our overachieving help defense, may also trend toward megalomaniacal as well.
the question is not what do I make of this, it's what does glen davis make of it. rivers ran him out of town on a rail in favor of a crappy solution to his role on the team that did not work out. why davis would ever want to get near rivers again, other than to cash a paycheck, is a big question.
i also can't see a role for davis on the clippers. flake griffin is the 4 and deanderthal is the 5. maybe davis gets 10 to 15 clicks a night? i would think the better move for davis would be new jersey- they have nothing to lose right now and if davis was to come in there and re-ignite the decent working relationship he had with KG and start diving all over the floor again- and that leads to NJ over-achieving in the playoffs then that would bode well for davis getting a good new contract, porcelain kirolanko be damned
He'd be the first big off the bench, like he was here. If Blake plays 36 minutes a night and Jordan plays 36 minutes a night that leaves 24 minutes a game Of which baby would get a good chunk.
Also, there will be a few games here and there one of those guys will miss due to injury. maybe more. The added depth will help the Clippers not lose ground to injuries.
