In Response to Re: Glen Davis 'exercising his mind'
[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Glen Davis 'exercising his mind' : Did it ever occur to you that perhaps Doc felt it was necessary to expose Glen to public criticism to counteract the absurdly big ego that Glen had developed (probably because of his early success)?
Another possibility is that Doc doesn't have to criticize a lot of the other players (PP, RA, KG, and yes, even Rondo) because they take responsibility. PP takes responsibility (he owned up to his mistakes in the Miami series), RA is one of the most professional guys in the NBA, KG is harder on himself than anyone else could be, and Rondo owned up to his mistakes (admitted he was playing the worst of his career, that he needed to play better, and that he was not injured). None of them made excuses. Rondo didn't use his elbow as an excuse, nor his foot problems; how can Glen use his knee as an excuse? The facts are Glen choked, he wants too much money, he wants too big of a role, and he has too big of an ego without taking responsibility for his actions (Amare easy to guard? really? where was he on that one? If Amare didn't get hurt Baby would have been left curled in the fetal position crying himself to sleep).

cite me evidence of davis' absurdly big ego. i've not heard about it until you said it. doc started doing this early and often with davis. it's not how coaches treat players unless they have a personal thing with them.
and doc has a more or less personal thing with almost all young players whose names aren't spelled "rondo". speaking of that, rondo has by far and away, the most massive ego I have seen in a while. and for a guy who can't shoot and believes himself to be above the task of doing it. kind of like obama having no experience commensurate to leaing a country, and not giving a care about that, rondo does not have the COMPLETE skill set needed to successfully lead a team, and seems proud of it and defiant about whether he should be or is learning how to shoot the rock whenevr he's asked.
so tell me, sage one, why hasn't doc outed the double nickels percent free throw shooting wonderkid point guard who's been under his tutleage now his whole career and defiantly won't improve? why dat?
