Glen Davis, Ronald Glen Davis (born January 1, 1986 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana), commonly known as Glen Davis and by his nickname Big Baby, is an American basketball player who plays for the NBA’s Orlando Magic. Formerly a college basketball player for LSU, Davis was selected by the Seattle SuperSonics with the 35th overall pick in the 2007 NBA Draft and shortly after traded to Boston.
Davis is listed at 6 ft 9 in (2.06 m), 289 lb (131 kg; 20.6 st) and plays the power forward and center positions.
On March 20, 2007, Davis held a press conference to announce that he would forgo his senior season at LSU and enter his name into the NBA Draft in 2007.
He signed with agent John Hamilton of Performance Sports Management.
Davis was drafted by the Seattle SuperSonics with the 35th overall pick in the 2007 NBA Draft. The rights to Davis were traded to the Boston Celtics along with Ray Allen for Delonte West, Wally Szczerbiak and the rights to the 5th overall pick in the 2007 NBA Draft, Jeff Green.
In the summer of 2001, at only 15 years of age, Davis attended a basketball camp run by LSU alumnus and future Boston Celtic teammate Shaquille O’Neal on the campus of Louisiana State University. O’Neal challenged Davis to a friendly wrestling match, in which Davis lifted the 7 ft 1 in (2.16 m), 325 lb (147 kg; 23.2 st) center and body-slammed him to the ground. The encounter left a strong impression on O’Neal; ultimately, the incident helped Davis to get introduced to then LSU head coach Dale Brown.
Davis was given his nickname when he was 9 years old by a youth league coach. At 5’6″, 160 pounds, he was too large to play pee-wee and played as a senior. He used to cry when playing with his older teammates, and his coach would tell him, “Stop crying, you big baby.”
