If he only knew that he would never be an All-Star, maybe he would have kept his outlandish comments to himself. What comments? In an interview with ESPN’s Chris Broussard, Davis stated:
“When I become an All-Star in the NBA, when I become a great player in the NBA, then I’ll try football. One of my dreams has always been to play football
Davis was a great football player in high school and played a little defensive end, tackle and running back. Imagine a 6-foot-9, 300lbs. running back…..
It’s a noble goal. Even though he is big and perhaps agile enough to play in the NFL, he is not tough enough. Crying on a NBA sideline is bad enough, but that same action is unacceptable on the grid-iron.
Davis is currently on injured reserve due to an off court scuffle with a friend. It would be ideal, and I’m sure the Celtics would agree, for him to focus on getting healthy and help his team vie for another title.
