I def. noticed this when Davis was celebrating. Don't think it's really much to talk about, Davis obviously wasn't trying to punk a 12 year old (at least i hope not). He was just excited because he hit a walkoff playoff game winning jumper. It's unfortunate that he bumped the kid but you've got to realize that something like that could happen if you're sitting right on the floor.

Nothing to apologize about.

Normal celebration after a buzzer beater.

Big Baby didn't embarass the kid in anyway, YouTube did.

There are vids called "Big Baby pushes little fat kid after buzzer beater" --> if anybody, it's the uploaders that are embarassing the kid.

Big Baby just did he job and ran towards his bench/teammates. Absolutely no case with Big Baby. Not a chance.

ok in all seriousness, whether Davis owes him an apology or not, it would be nice to just do it and give the kid an autograph and all is fixed.

some advice for the father...


Your spoiled 12 year old was sitting COURTSIDE at a playoff game, stuff like this CAN happen there. This is like complaining that you were hit by broken glass at a hockey game when you have 2nd row seats...


if you dont wanna run the risk of having your kid dive-bomb into his seat (clearly did not happen) then buy 'worse' seats.

People dont cry like this guy is if a NBA player dives into the crowd to save a ball, basically the same thing. Your kid was there watching, got his little heart broken, and now you are trying to get him some justification because he is all over the net getting semi-heismaned by big baby

dont sit courtside then piss-n-moan

The kid's dad has a case. Davis crossed the line into the fans section, and shoved the kid rather than try to avoid him. I can understand Davis being excited and celebrating, but the league probably should do something about him shoving a fan...

Shoving a fan? He hit a buzzer beater, and started to run back to the bench to celebrate with teammates. He didn't go out with intent to hurt or push anyone.

This is just an overprotective father who's pissed that he had courtside seats to a buzzer-beating loss.

Whatever.

Are you kidding? The dudes seats are next to the team bench if your standing up your in the players way not the other way around time for some rich a-hole to go sit in the lux box.

It was evil Joe Kennedy's fault anyhow.

Whatever.

The thing that bothers me is that he made no attempt to avoid the fan, I'm not saying he hit the shot and then went looking for someone to shove around. But he was in the fan section, and he did shove a fan, rather than try to avoid him.

If he turned around after the shot, bumped into an opposing player, and shoved him, you know there would be a fine involved.

I'm not saying Davis should be suspended or anything like that, but he should at least be made to make an apology...

KeithLBC
05-11-2009, 03:54 PM
From what I saw, it was either Davis plowed into the ref who was standing just inside the line on the court, or he pushed the kid. It's not like he checked the kid with his shoulder, he just pushed him out of the way.

It would probably be the "PC" thing to do for Davis to apologize, but it's really not a big deal. It's almost as funny as Pierce not giving the Cavs fan a high 5 a few months ago.

It's not like he ran onto the court. He was in the fan section, and the player shoved him. I don't know the exact terminology, but I'm fairly certain that it's against the rules to shove a fan.

Go to a basketball game courtside, expect players to dive into you, spill your beer or knock you over. Especially if ur standing ON the sideline, literally.

Having a player dive on you for a ball and having a player shove you out of the way are two different things, especially when you're not standing anywhere stupid. The kid was standing right in front of his seat...

This isn't just some stupid 'The Celtics are evil' thing, but surely shoving a fan out of the way infringe on the NBA's rules on player conduct...

he didnt just go up and shove the kid, he turned and ran after he hit the shot, and when he turn and ran the kid was there, and he tried to get around him. he didnt "push him".

the kid was courtside...what else can his dad expect? If I was courtside i woulda loved for an NBA player to accidentally run into me...no apology is needed from Baby...The dad puts his kid at courtside and doesnt complain about the constant swearing and cussing Im sure his kid heard, but he complains about a love tap? That kid may be embarressed but only because his dad said he was, if his dad didnt say anything about it, that kid woulda been the most popular kid in school the next day.

all this is is the Dad smelling an oppurtunity for money.

I laughed at this clip many times, because the overweight child looks crushed as it is and then Glen Davis gives him a little love tap and knocks off the kid's hat... in which it causes the child's cankles to bend and for him to lean up against the chair.


Seeing the father saying his son needed to nearly jump across the chair is ridiculous, what this father needs is an apology for courtside seats. B**s like this don't deserve to sit courtside. Go walk up some stairs and let your kid lose some weight, then they won't need to push his fat-a* out of the way. I'm sick of people complaining when they have the best of everything, we're in a damn recession and he wants an apology for a TAP?

Okay answer this, if you hit a buzzer shot in a game that could have dropped you down to 3-1 and pretty much end the series, would you even pay attention to anything around you? He was looking down at the Celtics bench screaming and I would have done the same. This doesn't justify it, but there was no intent in harming anyone, give him a ****in break he just hit a game winner.

If a player bumped into another player it would be a fine? lmao, kidding me? People bump into each other all the time after dunks/layups, do they get fined? No, because there's no intent.

Look at the kid, he probably deserved it. All week at school I'm sure he was bragging and rubbing it in all the other 5th graders faces. No, but serious who cares. If you go to a baseball game and get hit by a foul ball it's your fault, it's not as if he Ron Artested him. Suck it up little boy and grow up, oh and to the dad if you can afford court side seats during a poor economy STFU and stop looking for a quick buck.

I'm not saying there was any intent (I'm sure I mentioned that at some point), but some sort of apology should be made, because Davis did shove a fan out of the way...

And yes, players do bump into each other, but when they shove each other out of the way, then there's usually some repercussions.

:rolleyes: For goodness' sake...

I've already said it's not just about the Celtics, I've never been a guy who just complains about one particular player or team.

I've also already said that there's a difference between a guy diving for a loose ball and a guy shoving a fan, which there obviously is...

If the kid and his father were facing the court at the time, he likely would have realized a very large man was running past him. The kid turned, as Davis was running toward his bench.

Standing toward the court he is "less in the way" than when he turns his body to the side. You are wider from side to side than front to back. He put himself in Davis's way inadvertantly. When you sit courtside you pay attention, you don't turn your back.

Sadly if this was a magic player, this kid would probably hang that shirt on his wall and never wash it again.

I'll make an argument to counter the fathers..

Davis backed up after the shot and ended up past the bounds line.. he ran at an angle toward the court, however he noticed this defenseless young child was in his way. He thought the boy was falling over backwards in amazement at such a tremendous buzzer beater, so he put his hand on the boys back to prevent him from imminent neck trauma.

Kudos Glen for saving that boys life.

The Intimidator
05-12-2009, 10:48 AM
Some things I noticed about this "incident" are:

1. The Dad is facing the crowd when Davis "maliciously shoves" his son. How does he know exactly what happened if he didn't see it? He clearly went home, turned on ESPN, saw the highlights, then decided to try and get something out of this.

2. The kid never makes an attempt to dive back into his seat like his father said. He stands there and gets his hat knocked off.

3. The kid was really close to actually being on the court. Now, nobody is saying he has to be sitting down in his seat, because that was obviously the biggest moment of the game. But if he was standing back a little bit, and was actually somewhat near his seat, Davis never bumps into him.

4. In order to bump into the kid, Davis ducked around the ref. The kid was standing right in his path at that point. If he had run over the ref, people would have complained. If he had gone around the ref in the other direction, he would have run right into another player. There's no way for Davis to win in this situation.


So please, come on man. Davis had no intention of running into your kid. He was trying to get over to the rest of his teammates, who were just as excited as he was (except for Scalabrine for some reason). If Davis wants to be PC, he'll apologize to your kid. However, to demand an apology and to describe Davis as a rabid animal makes you look like a hypocrite, because I guarantee if Dwight Howard hit that shot and bumped into your kid, you would have been acting the same way.

Obviously your a Celtics fan, if Dwight Howard did the same thing your take on this would be completely opposite too. The bottom line is that usually when a player hits a game winner, his teammates running to him, Big Baby did the opposite and did it with one of the ugliest faces of all time. The bottom line is when Kobe or Pierce hit a shot at the buzzer watch what they do and it's not what that rabid animal did. Act like you have been there before, not like a fat maniac. What he should be apoligizing for his that god awful face. Nonetheless, it wasn't a big deal the kid is fine, but he was 12 so give him an apoligy and let's move on.

There's no way for Davis to avoid bumping into someone, that's fair enough. My only issue is just with the way he pushed the fan out of the way, after he avoided the ref, there was no attempt by him to avoid the fan :shrug:

I'll give you that. At the same time, however, you have to figure that there were other things on Davis' mind than running towards his teammates, noticing a kid, stopping and calmly avoiding the kid, and then continuing to run towards his teammates. I would chalk it up to too much forward momentum.

Listen sport,
I wrote a very valid argument about how big baby acted like a fool and you must have realized that I was correct, because all you can say is that I am immature. Come on,can really tell me that the face that big baby made wasn't one of the worst victory faces of all time.

Wow!! its not even that serious. Its not like he push a female over.lol. His a 12 year old boy. Man up. Plus, when you look at the video no one on the sideline next to the boy took it seriously. They just look like "I can't believe we just lost". Where was the father then?lmao. Now its a big deal?? But if they really want the apology give just give it to them. But the father is embarrasing his son by talking and its gaining publicity. it's all over espn and newspapers. They keep showing that image all over tv and debating if glenn should apologize. Imagine how this kid feels going to school now.lol. And the father's remarks were hilarious."An Orlando Magic season-ticket holder is demanding that Celtics forward Glen Davis apologize to his son, whom he shoved after making a game-winning jumpshot on Sunday. The man described Davis as a "raging animal" and a "lunatic" with no regard for the fans' safety." Stupid remarks like this is going to keep this on the news for another week.lmao. He's going to ruin the boy's teenage life.lol. But in the end, I think glenn should apologize even though it wasn't intentional, give him a pair of celtics tickets and let these people move on with their life.

ok in all seriousness, whether Davis owes him an apology or not, it would be nice to just do it and give the kid an autograph and all is fixed.

and if i were the kid i'd ask for an autograph from Ray Allen, Paul Pierce, or Kevin Garnett! who wants a Davis autograph! the guy cant even close his mouth! lol

i wonder if it was the other way around, being howard who did the buzzer beating and crashing on the kid, the father still'd want an apology?

I don't think so. lol. But since it's the opposing team, he's angry.lmao. he needs to do a better job protecting his son.lol

This thread sucks, Big Baby is a a raging animal and the 12 year old's dada is wack as F@#$, I'm over all these boston fans taking this wicked farr. What we should be talking about is that awful face and when he cried after Garnett told him to.

Again, making fun of his face. Real mature on your part. Other players would react the same way as Davis did, so how exactly was he a raging animal? Answer me that.

This is ridiculous and a double standard, in deed. Had a Magic player hit the game winning shot and hit the kid, there probably would've have been any problem.

WALTHAM, Mass. (AP) - Boston Celtics forward Glen Davis apologized Tuesday for bumping a 12-year-old boy while celebrating his game-winning shot against the Orlando Magic.
Davis said he got emotional and didn't see the boy as he turned and ran to the Celtics bench to celebrate his 21-foot jumper that gave the Celtics a 95-94 win over the Magic on Sunday. It tied the second-round playoff series at 2-2.

"If I've hurt anybody or if I've done any harm to anybody, please forgive me because my intentions were just harmless," he said.

Video of the play shows the 6-foot-9, 289-pound Davis ducking behind a referee and stepping out of bounds before appearing to place a hand in the small of the boy's back. The boy took a step back and his hat fell off.

If he had realized he made contact with the boy, Davis said he would have tried to make him feel better.

Ernest Provetti, the boy's father, wrote an e-mail to the NBA league office Monday calling Davis a "raging animal with no regard for fans' personal safety," according to the Orlando Sentinel.

"The NBA makes it clear to not cross the sideline," Provetti told the Sentinel. "If I cross that line, the NBA will take away my tickets. It's a double standard."

Later Monday, he told the Sentinel he reacted emotionally and would back off his demand for an apology.

The NBA had not responded to his e-mail, he said, but his Facebook page was flooded with nasty messages.

"In the scheme of things, I still think he shouldn't have went on the sideline, but obviously nothing is going to come of it," Provetti said. "And it's better to forget about it and not incite it anymore."

Game 5 is Tuesday night in Boston.

Case close, end of story. It was an emotional moment. No one can expect Baby to turn back and apologize right then and there. It's being overblown.

I think he should apologize. It's not saying he did something wrong, just that he's sorry he pushed a 12 yr old. As for the autograph, you'll have trouble finding people who want a Glen "Big Baby" Davis autograph. :D

I was thinking a framed autographed picture of Davis shoving the kid out of the way with the final score on the frame.

Man some people will literally ***** about anything...he just made a buzzer beater in a game which would have them down 3-1 and pretty much end the series, give him a break. He was going crazy with excitement.

Plus, just saw on ESPN that he made an apology.
