'Big Baby' busted with 126 grams of pot, $92K in cash

Former Celtics forward Glen "Big Baby" Davis was arrested last month in a hotel room in Aberdeen, Maryland, with more than 126 grams of marijuana and more than $92,000 in cash.

Davis, 32, who played on the Celtics 2008 championship team was last in the NBA with the Los Angeles Clippers in 2015, was arrested Feb. 7 after the hotel owner at the Aberdeen Hampton Inn smelled marijuana coming from Davis' room, WMAR-TV in Baltimore reported.

“They recovered 126 grams of marijuana,” Aberdeen Police Lt. William Reiber told WMAR. “In addition to that, there was a briefcase that contained 92,164 dollars of U.S. currency along with a ledger that contained language which is consistent with someone involved in the sale and distribution of narcotics.”

Davis is charged with seven counts of drug possession and distribution.

Police said the strains of marijuana were from a Los Angeles wholesaler that court records show Davis told police he was in business with.

He told officers he was visiting family in Maryland. Davis' attorney told WMAR the former Celtic (2007-11) adamantly maintains his innocence and looks forward to his day in court next month to clear his name. 


Glen Davis goes on NSFW rant about Doc and Austin Rivers


Glen Davis goes on NSFW rant about Doc and Austin Rivers

Back in February, former Celtics big man Glen “Big Baby” Davis had some choice words about former Celtics head coach Doc Rivers.

Davis expressed his frustrations, saying Rivers is an overrated coach and was “lucky as hell” to win a championship with the Celtics.

According to Skip Bayless, Davis took another shot at his former coach, saying Austin Rivers’ presence in the Los Angeles Clippers locker room is causing resentment.

When asked about Davis’ comments on Wednesday's episode of Undisputed on Fox Sports 1, Rivers said it’s “a bunch of BS”

“It makes no sense to what he’s doing, and whatever he has between him and his pops – my pops said the jokes about his weight and stuff,” Rivers said on Undisputed. “It was hard – Let me ask you something: If someone is constantly out of shape, late, don’t remember plays, how the hell are you supposed to play him?”

Big Baby heard about Austin Rivers’ comments while he was on vacation in Hawaii and went on a NSFW rant with the caption, "Hey Austin shut up please."


Rajon Rondo was the only one to stay quiet during Ray Allen discussion

Rajon Rondo was the only one to stay quiet during Ray Allen discussion

For all the things that were said about Ray Allen by members of the 2008 Celtics during Monday night’s roundtable, the most intriguing words from Kevin Garnett weren’t even about Allen. 

“You chillin’, though?” Garnett asked with a grin. “You’re chillin’, though? You’re chillin’? You’re chillin’, though?”

Garnett was speaking to Rajon Rondo, who sat in silence as Garnett, Paul Pierce, Kendrick Perkins and Glen “Big Doesn’t Really Need to Be Part of This; He was a Rookie and Averaged 2.3 Points and 1.5 Rebounds That Postseason” Davis all vented their frustrations with the third member of the Celtics’ most recent Big Three. 

The video essentially served as a 6:35 diss track. Yet Rondo never took a verse. 

And perhaps that’s the most interesting thing about the video. This was four players airing a public vendetta (and showing hyper-sensitivity in the process) in a way that’s usually not seen. To not be able to participate in that conversation says one of two things about Rondo: that he doesn’t have much to say or that what he has to say is on an entirely other level. 

Of the entire group, nobody was believed to have had a worse relationship with Allen than Rondo, which is why it wasn’t a huge surprise that Rondo was the player singled out in Allen’s Facebook photo response. 

Pierce shed light on the pair’s relationship in a 2015 interview with Jackie MacMullan, suggesting it was more of an Allen problem than a Rondo problem. 

"I remember when Rondo re-signed with Boston, we had a little dinner at a restaurant and Ray didn't show up,” Pierce said.

"I know Ray probably didn't like Rondo that much, but it wasn't a fact of not liking somebody. You don't have to like everybody you play with -- it's a matter of showing support.

"Rondo probably didn't like Ray either, but he came to Ray's functions to show, 'Hey, we're together in this.’”

Allen told the Miami Herald that his issues with Rondo went back to 2009. From that piece:

He said the friction with Rondo began in 2009 when Rivers and Celtics president Danny Ainge proposed a trade that would have sent Allen and Rondo to Phoenix for Amare Stoudemire, Leandro Barbosa and the 14th overall pick in the 2010 draft. Allen said that, at the time, Ainge and Rivers ‘didn’t get along’ with Rondo. 

‘So, I called him and I told him, ‘Hey they’re supposedly trading us to Phoenix because you and Danny and Doc don’t get along,’ Allen said. ‘So, whatever you can do.’ … ‘So, for some reason, I guess he thought that I was … that I had something against him, or there were some issues. And I had no issues with him. I won with him.’ Now, Allen says if Rondo ‘had issue with me, that’s on him … ‘I have a way of going about doing my job that, I want everyone to come and play their hardest and come in and do their job and I can’t, I don’t worry myself with things I can’t control,’ Allen said.

The biggest piece Rondo has spoken regarding Allen recently was when he responded to news of Allen’s retirement by saying he thought he had already retired. There’s a lot he probably could have said Monday night. It’s interesting that he was the only one who kept quiet.
