Whenever crazy Ron Artest retires, I’m fairly certain that Glen “Big Baby” Davis will gladly accept the torch as the craziest player in the NBA. Here he is talking about … clouds during a radio interview.
“I hired a sports psychologist to help you tap into the zone … as far as you miss a shot, you don’t worry about that. You go to the other end and use that energy to do something else on defense. … Let it pass like a cloud. Clouds pass by you all the time and you don’t worry about it, you’ve just got to keep going.
I would have been even more impressed if he had dropped a cirrus or cumulus reference.
I wish the radio hosts had asked him about the Dougie instead of who he thinks the best player in the league is (answer: “I might just say Amar’e Stoudemire because he’s just so hard to guard.”). Apparently Big Baby is not a fan of Kobe, and part of that has to do with LA’s best player occasionally speaking Spanish on the floor (does he mean Italian?): “You stress him out and he might speak some Spanish to you and you’re like, ‘What are you talking about?’” [Sports Radio Interviews]
