Big Baby Returns Tonight… Does He Deserve A Tribute?


It’s a question I’ve been thinking about for awhile now. The boys over at ESPNBoston.com and I threw it out there for today’s 3-on-3 discussion. Be sure to give the whole thing a read, but here’s a sampling of our differing thoughts.

Payne: That’s a tough one, but I’m going to say no. I don’t think Davis was here for long enough to warrant a tribute, even though he did leave Celtics fans with many memories. Part of the reason Kendrick Perkins got one was because of his many years with the club, and Davis didn’t come close to touching that longevity.

Robb: Despite any ill will that may linger from both sides, I still feel like Davis deserves something. He was a productive member of that 2008 Championship squad, and carried the C’s to another Finals win alongside Nate Robinson against the Lakers in 2010. Are we talking about a Perk-sized tribute here? Absolutely not. Some kind of acknowledgement, however brief, would suffice and help further the C’s reputation as a classy organization when it comes to former players.

Forsberg: Absolutely. Sure, Davis wasn’t a monster contributor to that 2007-08 title team, at least not in the Finals, where he appeared in only one game (playing 15 minutes in that lopsided and clinching Game 6 at TD Garden). But he was a consistent presence during his four seasons in Boston, ramping up to a starter-like role as the first big off the bench last season. When Garnett went down during the 2008-09 playoffs, it was the Ticket Stub that stepped up. Davis also aided the run to the 2010 Finals. He deserves a tribute like the other members of that 2008 team. Though, it’d be even better if they played his “It’s the fourth quarter!” crowd pump-up video or maybe him singing Kesha’s TiK ToK.

    I'd say give him a little tribute, but not something like we did with Perk. Maybe just something like him drooling in the Shrek/Donkey game with a "Thank you Glen/Big Baby/Shrek"

    Yeah, the guy definitely deserves a thank you. He gave us two amazing runs in '09 and '10, and despite all the frustration he gave us at times, he deserves an ovation.

    Now that he's gone, I will say this though. He might be immature, but of all the players in green the last couple of years, there must be no one who suffered more than Baby. Doc made him reinvent himself every couple of weeks, according to what our centers or Garnett were doing, especially last season.

    All that while trying to develop into a decent starter, under the soothing, melodic voice of guidance of that maniac KG. Must've been a friggin blast!
