The story behind Big Baby’s ear plugs

LOS ANGELES — Glen Davis [1] raised a few eyebrows when he was spotted wearing ear plugs during Game 1 of the NBA finals [2].

But it wasn’€™t to block out the jeers of the Lakers fans sitting behind the Celtics [3] bench — ‘€œFans are fans ‘€¦ Everyone feels like they can joke on me,’€ he said before practice on Friday. It was to block out loud noises, a cause of aggravation since suffering a concussion in the Eastern Conference semifinals.

The earplugs worked. Well, after Davis made a minor adjustment.

‘€œYou know what’€™s so funny?’€ he said. ‘€œI didn’€™t think they worked well at first, but then Rasheed (Wallace [4]) was like, ‘€˜Turn them around,’€ because I had them stuck in my ear the wrong way.’€

Davis removed the ear plugs when he played, but said he gets into a zone on the court and doesn’€™t hear the noise anyways. But he never misses Doc Rivers [5] calling for him to get in the game.

‘€œYou can always hear him – ‘€˜Baby! Baby!’€™’€ Davis said, channeling an impression of his coach. ‘€œHe’€™s loud, so I can hear him. I’€™m always looking at him anyways because he’€™s always standing up that way because the game’€™s that way.’€
