Glen Davis fires shots at Austin and Doc Rivers yet again
After posting a profanity-laced rant on Instagram last week in response to Rivers’ comments made against him, Big Baby explained himself on the Tiki and Tierney Show on CBS Sports Radio, where he said he shouldn’t have gone public with his comments. However, it didn’t take long before he once again took a shot at Austin, and even on his former coach, Doc Rivers.
He thinks that the older Rivers will be able to keep his job with the L.A. Clippers, but will most likely be in the hot seat after next season.
“First of all I shouldn’t have did that because I shouldn’t let that guy get me out of character, but at the end of the day, you got to state the facts,” Davis said. “If you’re going to talk about me as a player and professional, I was never late or didn’t know the plays. I shouldn’t have said it, but he had to get put in this place … He don’t want none of this.”
“I think he’s going to get saved this year, but I feel like next year he’s going to be on the hot seat because he’s taking something he’s now created, Blake [Griffin] and DeAndre [Jordan] and all those guys were there before he really got there, so this is his first time really mixing it up with those big guys. I think they’re going to give him another chance and get his ass out of there.”
The feud started when Davis ripped off Doc Rivers during his appearance on FS1’s Undisputed, to which Austin Rivers fired back in a guesting at the same show. The 6-foot-9 big man then fired back by calling him a liar, among many things, in the now infamous video he posted.
It will be interesting to see how either Rivers will respond to Davis’ recent comments. It is almost a certainty that they will be asked about it in the future, and many are already keeping an eye on the situation. For now, both father and son remain silent, but it might change anytime soon.
