BBD wasn't even a first round pick. He fought from barely making a team to being an NBA starter and team Captain. That to me is fighting to earn everything you got.

And, his heart and hustle is what inspires his teammates to work harder. He does everything within his power to win games and that is something nobody else on this team outside of Nelson has shown they are capable of over-extending themselves for the sake of the team.

If I had a full team of BBD's as an NBA coach, then I would have a championship without a superstar.

We're still on the fringe of competing for the playoffs, but we can't really afford many more losses and hope to stay in it.

I'm personally getting more excited about Shabazz and McLemore, so the losses don't upset me, especially considering the team is fighting hard for the win.

If we had an Ibaka/Smith style defensive 4, this team would still be fighting for a playoff spot. We really lack a defensive anchor.

BBD better not mess this up :evil: I was a BBD advocate from day one but we need some help from a solid lotto pick.

Need him back for what? To ruin our lotto pick while also missing the playoffs? I can hardly wait!

Trade him, i like Big Baby he's really won me over but after losing 10 straight what are we playing for again? Trade him while his value is somewhat high. Only trade him for a good deal though not a "bag of chips" trade

If nothing else, Glen can help Nicholson learn how to play power forward. (I recently watched Nicholson's "Learning the Ropes" video on YouTube.)

I found this interesting...

D.J. Foster wrote:Orlando’s offense is better without Glen “Big Baby” Davis. However, the defense is much, much better with him on the floor.

Down is up, left is right, war is peace. Glen Davis hurts Orlando offensively, but helps defensively. Who knew? Orlando posts an impressive 105.7 offensive rating when Davis is off the floor, which would be good for 7th in the league.

However, when Davis is on the floor, Orlando drops to a 101 offensive rating, which would sink them to 17th in the league.

But fear not, because Glen Davis is apparently a defensive stopper! Defensively with Davis on the floor, Orlando holds opponents to a 101.7 rating — 12th best in the league.

But with him off the floor, Orlando is a disaster defensively without their Big Baby, surrendering a 110.6 rating, which would be dead last in the league by a large margin.

With 824 minutes on the floor and 919 minutes off, the sample size is pretty substantial. The solution? If Glen Davis used less possessions and focused on tip-ins and offensive rebounds, the Magic could, theoretically, have a high ranking offense and defense. Of course, basketball doesn’t quite work like that, but it’s something worth considering when you watch Davis get the ball from now on.

Ok, so a team has to change their offensive phylosophy when one of their anchors goes down. Hence, they run a faster set and score more points because they are losing games and are always playing catchup.

Sure, this seems like a better offense, but really it is just a losing team scoring more points.

That doesn't make this a better team when BBD is out, that is just someones statistical analysis. But, some stats don't show a players worth. And, that link above is proof that stats don't mean crap.

It's talking about efficiency, not total points. There is a huge difference.
