Shaq on Baby: ‘He’ll be back more focused’

CLEVELAND  —  Cavaliers [1] superstar center Shaquille O’Neal [2] was asked about his friend Glen Davis [3], who did not make the trip to Cleveland for the season opener Tuesday night because of a reported broken bone in his right hand following a fight with a former LSU teammate on Sunday night.

“Well they call him Big Baby for a reason, he’s my son,” joked O’Neal, who like Davis starred in basketball at Louisiana State. “A lot of people don’t know that. He’s a great player. I’ve known him since he was a youngster.

“He works hard, has been working hard on his game. It’s an unfortunate incident but one thing about him is he’s a focused individual so he realizes he may have made a mistake so he’ll come back more focused than ever.”

The Cavaliers held a brief shootaround at Quicken Loans Arena [4] on Tuesday morning.
