Enough is enough with Davis. Doc Rivers is right. It's time for Davis, 24, to grow up. The Celtics were outscored 43-12 in bench points against the Pistons. Davis had 4 points and spent more time focused on the fan than his game.
Davis has had a myriad of issues/incidents in his brief NBA career. He went shirtless during the Celtics's championship parade in 2008. He cried on the bench after being upbraided by Kevin Garnett last season. After he hit his game-winning jumper in Orlando in the '09 playoffs, he got overexcited and accidentally shoved aside a young fan. He broke his thumb on the eve of the season opener in an altercation with a friend.
Now, we have the "Baby Talk" incident. This fan was obviously a moron and he shouldn't have been allowed to berate Davis. But it's time for Davis to start acting like a professional or he won't be one for much longer.
...That's what the Patriots have when it comes to picks in the 2013 NFL Draft, which starts Thursday. After all those years of stockpiling picks the way a survivalist does non-perishables the Patriots have just five picks in this year's draft, thanks to Band-aid trades for Albert Haynesworth, Chad Ochocinco and Aqib Talib. Five picks would be the fewest draft picks in franchise history. (Part of that is attributable to the trimming of the draft to just seven rounds in 1994). Further complicating matters is that two of the Patriots' greatest needs are at wide receiver and cornerback, positions where they have sustained draft droughts. With that in mind, I'm convinced the Patriots are going trade back out of the first round of a quanity-over-quality draft where you're just as likely to pick a Pro Bowl player in the second and third round as you are in the first round.
