Big Baby Lives Up to His Nickname

How did former LSU and current Celtic forward Glen Davis get his nickname? Is it because he is large and also has (what would appear to be) baby fat (but is actually man fat) on his face (and everywhere)? Because he loves Disneyland? Is it because he is sensitive and quick with the waaaa's?

↵On the one hand, it's hard to be flip and cold considering Kevin Garnett is a notoriously rough teammate and given TrueHoop's recent citation of an NBA insider who suggested as many as 95% of the league's players are depressed.

↵On the other hand, Big Baby should get his tail in the huddle and should really keep his demonstrative self-pity restricted to non-ESPN games. I have trouble for someone who played without effort and then has the temerity to take offense when a former MVP calls him out in the huddle.↵
