Doc: ‘Baby is not a bad person’

CLEVELAND  —  Doc Rivers [1] and Danny Ainge both sounded like upset brothers before Tuesday’s game when they spoke of Glen Davis [2]‘ indiscretions that resulted in a fractured thumb and a team-mandated suspension.

“Baby is not a bad person,” Rivers said [3] before the game, speaking at length for the first time since details surfaced about Davis’ Sunday scuffle. “He made a bad mistake and he made a bad judgment. Unfortunately, it only takes one second or five seconds to make a mistake and then you have to live with it at times. And right now, he has to live with that mistake.

“But he’s not a bad kid. He’s growing, he’s maturing. Obviously, he has some ways to go. But we want to help him do that. I really feel that’s part of my job as a coach to help him as a person and not put him in ways like that.”
