Even Big Baby’s tired of “Big Baby.” After being fined after an altercation with a heckler in Detroit last week, Glen Davis said he wants to drop his long-standing nickname, and from now on go by ‘Uno-Uno.’
“I’m gonna blast that on Facebook and Twitter,” he said, half-joking.
Maturity has been an issue for Davis since the start of the season when a fight with a childhood friend left him with a broken hand and kept him out until December. His latest incident, in which he shouted an obscene sexual reference at an unruly fan, just added to that.
“This season’s been a huge character builder for me,” Davis said.
He said he got advice from Ray Allen, who sits two lockers over from Davis. Allen told him, “The 26-year-old man must think for the 36-year-old man, and the 36-year-old man must think for the 46-year-old man,” meaning one has to think about how his decisions affect his future.
Fined for the second time this season, Davis, who signed a two-year, $6.3 million contract over the summer, joked, “It’s amazing. You get a contract. Then you get fined and you can’t really enjoy it.”
