Bench warriors

Every single winning team wants spark plugs like these Boston dudes coming off the bench.


  • Shrek and Donkey

  • When posed the question of what happened on what may be, thus far, Davis' defining moment of the 2010 NBA Playoffs, he was surprised to learn that Robinson jumped on his back in celebration.

    "He didn't even notice. We're like Shrek and Donkey -- best friends," Robinson said, setting off bursting laughter among the press. "They can't separate us."

    Glen Davis pummeled the Lakers bigs last night. He put on a heroic display. Never mind that self-inflicted boxing injury that kept him out most of the season. He's come through big in the playoffs, just like last year with KG out of course.

    Glen Davis was a free agent last summer and everyone joked that he would get overpaid because of that amazing performance he had last year to keep the Celtics alive without "The Big Ticket". No one views Davis as a guy that will play large minutes for 82 games and dominate. He fills a niche only on a team like the Celtics perhaps. All I know is, that $6M contract which Boston gave him for two years is worth every penny. I lobbied for the Grizzlies to pick him up last summer. It certainly would have been better than us giving that same money to Allen Iverson. Of course, Big Baby probably would have demanded a lot more money than that to come to Memphis. It would have never worked.

    Nate Robinson. Well - I just saw "8 block" come alive. Celtics in 6?
