yeah and no. he needs to shut up and should have never said this crap publicly or even in the locker room. but i don't think he perceives himself as a star.
but stay with me for a few moments- if you were davis last year and busted your tail in the 09 playoffs and played out of your head and then you get the news that the team is going out to get a lazy washed up hack slob like sheed to steal some of your minutes in what should be your emergent year, isn't that going to TICK you off?
i think what you are hearing is pent up sour grapes with how doc has treated him for the past few years, mostly what i bring up below. doc has treated davis like crap by and large starting in the rook year and right on through senselessly yanking rotations around like only doc could.
i know breaking his thumb wasn't smart but it looked beautiful in my book next to how sheed stunk up the joint
in the regular season- i mean seriously, that was no Celtic quality basketball and shelden could have done just as well- definitely would have held down the boards better than half speed sheed did.
and all the while the red carpet was being rolled out for sheed and his fat rolls there were minutes galore in a solidly defined role for sheed
no matter how much he stank and loafed, the only bad thing you heard about the WHOLE team coming from doc
were his many comments about how stupid davis was
i could not believe that doc didn't just let sheed have it once while in front of a microphone post game for old times' sake- i really thought curtis rowe had come back from beyond and inhabited sheed's body!! but all you heard about that was bad was davis. and then doc took his sweet time "working him back in" when he did get back, while sheed continued to stink up the joint seemingly ever worse each game.
i could see how that hypocrisy would really leave a bad taste in someone's mouth- but the taste should stay right there and not come out for public consumption- that is a bad error in judgement.
what's in the cards for davis when perkins "comes back" <gulp /> this winter? I gulp for the good of the team, not because i'm a davis homer. perkins does not belong in any rotation this year coming off of that injury- we have better players than him to fill the role. that could be what davis is wondering about as the new trick up doc's sleeve for this year, although the musings should once again not be made aloud.
a one step slower perkins is simply not a better player than the current davis, JON and shaq, warts of all them considered. but watch for some sort of veteran minute entitlement program coming up for new slower than ever totally rusty perk. i'd bet on it. then JON moves over the backup 4 and davis slides down the charts? it wouldn't be the first time that doc gave the inferior player minutes by the bushel load simply based on veteran status.
i hope that doesn't happen. and i really hope doc retires after this year. his schtick is rapidly nearing expiration date of effectiveness and i'm not just talking wth davis. going forward we need to work more and more younger talent in and doc is not the coach to do that with, never has been.
