Kudus to Glen Big Baby Davis for getting himself into shape, but damn son, why were you close to 300 pounds as a pre-teen?
Davis just returned to the lineup for the first time since last January, when he broke a bone in his foot, and according to John Denton of the Orlando Magic website, Davis is at his lowest weight since the eight grade.
“Eighth grade. Yeah, really, it’s the lightest I’ve been since the eighth grade,’’ said Davis, seemingly shocked himself. “This time it’s consistent (with the weight loss). There have been times when I’ve lost a lot of weight, but I’d just gain it right back. But as far as consistently staying at this weight and staying down, it’s been since the eighth grade when I was this thin.’’
Davis wasn’t allowed to play Pee Wee football one year because he was too big.
