They call him ‘Big Cuddly’

Music can be used to get players in ‘€œthe zone.’€ Rasheed Wallace [1] blares hip hop music through the Detroit Pistons [2] locker room. Tony Allen [3] shows off his rap skills before every Celtics [4] game. And then there’s Glen Davis [5].

On any given night, Big Baby can be seen sauntering down the halls of the TD BankNorth Garden [6] singing Jason Mraz or offering his own rendition of Celine Dion in the Celtics locker room. Davis has an explanation for his unexpected song choice.

‘€œI’m an emotional player and when I’m mad or I’m thinking mad, I’m not thinking at all,’€ Davis said. ‘€œBut when I’m smooth and I understand what’s going on, the rhythm of the game, I’m having fun, that’s the way I am.’€

Davis’ postseason playlist keeps him ‘€œsmooth’€ in high pressure situations. He lists ‘€œBubbly [7]‘€ by Colbie Caillat along with ‘€œBeat It’€ and ‘€œBilly Jean’€ by Michael Jackson [8] as his playoff favorites.

So what do his teammates say when he blurts out the latest pop hits?

‘€œNothing, they already know,’€ he said. ‘€œThey call me ‘Big Cuddly’ because I look like a big cuddly bear.’€
