Glen Davis: ‘I can start in this league’

MIAMI — As the Celtics [1] head to a summer with a little more certainty than last year, one of their biggest decisions will be made on Glen Davis [2] who will be an unrestricted free agent. Davis didn’t help himself with a poor posteason, but he said again that he feels like he can be a starter.

“You can’€™t just base it on just the playoffs,” Davis said. “My whole body of work I feel like I can play in this league, I can start in this league. My second year when Kevin [Garnett] went down, my third year playing in the playoffs and this year was my best year. I just didn’€™t play well in the playoffs this year. Things happen like that. I don’€™t think this playoffs is going to hurt me as much.”

Asked whether he wanted to stay with the Celtics, Davis said, “I have given thought about that. I love Boston and [hope] I can stay. But you never know, like [Kendrick Perkins [3]] situation. He was here for eight years, he wanted to stay but it just might not work my way. It’€™s just how it is.”

Asked what he wanted out of his career, Davis said, “I want to be a player in this league. I feel like I have a lot more to offer. I want to show the world my talent.”
