When eight year NBA veteran, and NBA champion, Glenn Davis jumped in The Herd today, nobody was off limits. That included Steph Curry, the Clippers organization, and former Clipper teammate Chris Paul.
When Colin asked how Steph Curry and his game would hold up if the NBA started allowing hand checking again, Big Baby was blunt in his assessment.
“Steph would be tossed around like a little kid if the hand check came back. Because you got to think about it, He’s what,180 pounds.”
He thinks the physical approach the Cavs took with Curry and the Warriors in Game 3 is the only approach when its win or go home.
“You gotta play physical. It’s the Finals. Every single second counts. Every single second. you can’t let a guy cut across the lane and not get touched. Or when you’re defending somebody. let them feel your body a little bit.”
Davis looked back at his brief tenure with the Clippers, and admitted that a widely held criticism of the All-NBA point guard Chris Paul among teammates is that he dribbles way, way too much.
“‘I’m Chris Paul, give me the ball. I’ll dribble, dribble dribble, dribble, dribble, dribble, dribble, dribble….dribble. Might pass if it looks good, or….I’ll shoot.'”
Davis currently has a beef with the Clippers organization. He alleges they failed to disclose the severity of an ankle injury he suffered while playing for the team. After entering free agency, he discovered his ankle was broken.
He was forced to sit out the past season while recovering from surgery on the ankle, and blames the Clippers for having to sit out.
