Quote of the day
"We were all slipping. It seemed like every Clipper was slipping, then when Ray Allen slips, they want to bring it in and address the issue, so that's what we were chirping about." -- Clippers forward Marcus Camby, complaining about persistent problems with condensation on the court in Boston
It was one of those nights when most of the top players in the NBA came up with big stat lines, or at least respectable outings. Arguably, 42.5 TSNP from LeBron is way below his norm. Beyond that, Duncan (28.5 TSNP), Camby (27.5), and Kaman (17) were no doubt disappointments for their fantasy owners. But there were plenty of good performances, and most of them came from unsurprising sources.
Maybe as a consequence of his obscenity-laced outburst toward a fan last week, Boston’s Glen Davis has decided that he wants to drop the nickname “Big Baby.” One local reporter suggested “Uno uno” (Davis wears #11), which he seemed to like. Apparently (according to his bio on a Celtics fan blog), the nickname started when he was playing in peewee leagues. Because he was bigger than the other kids his age, he was playing with older kids and would whine at times, so they would call him a big baby and the name stuck. When you have been known as “Big Baby” for a long time, I’m not sure you get to decide when to drop it. We’ll see. But he doesn’t really look like an “Uno uno” to me. Maybe more like “Grande once” or “Once grande”. (For those unfamiliar with Spanish, “once” is “eleven”, pronounced “ohn-say” – I think. I haven’t taken any Spanish since 6th grade.)

Guru...you took Spanish in the 6th grade???? Didn't know it was available before one's junior high school years.

Donny, things were different back during the Spanish-American War ;)
