The Boston Celtics have enjoyed success while forward Glen Davis has been a key part of the rotation.

And, they’ve done just fine while he was sitting on the bench, watching the action.

He’s definitely a useful player. But whether he’ll remain in Boston or not remains to be seen.

Glen Davis sounds as though he’s got one foot out the door after four years as a Boston Celtic. Maybe a foot and a half, even.

He also sounds perfectly OK with that.

Speaking with reporters at a charity event this week in Medford, Mass., the C’s youngster known as “Big Baby” had a few interesting words to say about his upcoming free agency.

“I can be Glen Davis wherever,” he said when asked about being himself in Boston. “It depends on the system, the people around the system, who is going to let Glen Davis be Glen Davis, not let Glen Davis be something they think he should be.”

It’s not just Davis’ 295-pound body that’s grown a lot over these last few years. Clearly it’s his ego, too.

Davis is just a bench guy. In 277 career games, he’s started 31 of them, only sneaking into the Celtics’ first unit when Kevin Garnett has been injured. But he’s become one of the league’s very best bench guys, finishing fourth last season in the voting for Sixth Man of the Year.

He’s a unique player, and no matter where he goes, Davis should keep making his mark.
