We're not in the business of pushing player merch, but the latest shirt being hawked by Celtics forward Glen Davis is worth a discussion. Davis has been pushing shirts featuring his Twitter catchphrase "Ayo Baby" for a little while now. Two thoughts come to mind:

ayo.jpg1. What the heck does "Ayo Baby" mean?
2. Those are pretty cool shirts. Note the background: It's from the game against the Magic where Davis hits the winning jumper before knocking over the kid in the front row. Awesome.

The Taio Cruz song "Dynamite" features the lyrics, "saying ayo, baby let's go." So maybe Davis took it from the song. An example of Davis's typical use of the catchphrase might be a tweet like this: "I like some girls with long fake hair!! It's cool; but when it gets In a bros food ! You got to be more careful! Ayo baby! Believe the baby!"

Does anyone know for sure what Davis is referring to when he says this? Does anyone else use the term "ayo, baby" in everyday life?
