Glen Davis on Amar’e’s core insult: ‘I’ve never had abs’

Glen Davis laughed off the latest barb from Amar’e Stoudemire. The rail-thin Knicks center, who brags about his low body fat, had said Davis’ "core wasn’t as tight as it should be."

The 6-foot-9, 289-pound Celtics forward took that as a sly way of pointing out that he is chubby. Davis leaned back in his seat next to the court at the Garden and patted his round stomach."I’ve never have had abs, no abs," Davis said with a laugh. "I am not gonna worry about that. Never in my life have I had abs, ever, even when I was a little baby."

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Glen Davis doesn’t have abs. In fact, the portly post admits he’s never had a ripped stomach.
 
The Boston Celtics’ star is openly defending his body shape because Amar’e Stoudemire mocked his core to reporters. Stoudemire has six-pack abs. Davis does not.
 
Davis does have a championship ring, though. His team does have a 3-0 advantage in their playoff series against Stoudemire’s New York Knicks.
 
Most importantly, Davis has his priorities right. Stoudemire does not.
 
For instance, Davis is laughing off Stoudemire’s latest insult, worrying only about closing out the series, and not saying anything at this stage that will end up on the Knicks’ bulletin board. There’s no comment about Stoudemire being ‘easy to defend’.
 
Meanwhile, Stoudemire is foolishly engaged in a personal duel. It doesn’t matter that he isn’t healthy. It doesn’t matter that his team is a game away from their cottages at the Hamptons. He’s acting a fool by running his mouth.
 
Of course, it’s ironic to see Davis showing maturity. His nickname is Big Baby. And he once missed weeks with a broken hand because he and a ‘friend’ had a physical encounter after a night of drinking.
 
Perhaps people learn. And perhaps people get sidetracked. Stoudemire will have time to think this over when his season soon ends.
