It has been a rough year for former NBA player Glen “Big Baby” Davis. Back in February, the 32-year-old was arrested in Maryland and later indicted on seven counts of drug possession and distribution, according to ESPN.
In May, Davis was arrested and charged with felony assault after an altercation with a man back in April outside of a nightclub in West Hollywood.
Recently, Davis pled not guilty to those assault charges in court, and he continues to maintain his innocence in the drug case.
Davis, who won an NBA with the Celtics in 2008, has always had the reputation of being a happy go lucky type of guy, which makes these allegations very surprising.
On Friday, Davis and team Power of the BIG3, celebrated a championship after defeating 3’s Company 51-43 in the BIG3 Championship Game at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
After the game, an emotional Davis talked about what playing in the BIG3 has done for him:
“I was dealing with depression before I accepted a contract with you guys, mentally,” Davis said. “Because when I left the game, I left the game in a different phase, and you guys brought that back to me. I been going through a lot of crazy things lately that is not who I am. (Ice)Cube, Clyde(Drexler) they stood by me. They knew who I was as a person, and this team stood by me; in spite of what everybody said out there or what they think or what they might see, and I thank you guys for that.”
Davis last played in the NBA back in 2015 with the Los Angeles Clippers.
