Glen Davis reflects on the past
 
Davis was unquestionably the Celtics’ whipping boy during the team’s 2007-08 title season. A green rookie, Davis was ridden hard by teammates Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce, and especially by coach Doc Rivers. The unrelenting treatment was effective as Davis turned into a capable reserve.

In Davis’s four seasons in Boston, his role expanded but never enough for him. The Celtics traded him to the Magic and he agreed to a four-year contract extension and immediately became one of Orlando’s more experienced players, carrying a championship ring.

“I look at it and I was just so thankful,” he said. “I got a chance to talk to the guys and I told Paul, I told KG, ‘Thank you. Really, thank you, Doc, for putting that discipline and that tough love. When I see these young guys [in Orlando] and I walk around, I see the same exact things [as I did in Boston] and me listening and humbling myself got me to this point now.”
