Who said throwing shots at each other on social media and in the press is only for rappers?
Pro ball players Glen "Big Baby" Davis and Austin Rivers are going back and forth about being teammates on the Los Angeles Clippers, a team that Austin's dad Doc Rivers coaches.
Their beef started last year after Davis said this about Doc and the Boston Celtics winning the NBA championship in 2008:
"He was lucky as hell," said Davis on Chris Broussard's podcast. "The year before that they were wearing trash bags [in the stands] ... But then the next year they win it, now he's one of the best coaches ever? I'm just not feeling that."Davis also said that Austin playing for his dad in LA created all kinds of problems within the team. Austin responded to all of that earlier this week on Undisputed.
"That's a bunch of B.S.," he said. "I've heard Baby say to me multiple times, 'You know why Doc is so good, Doc is great,' and then now he's saying bad things about him. It's a huge contradiction ... I've earned every stripe that I've gotten. I've earned every playing time ... If someone is constantly out of shape, late and don't remember plays, how the hell are you supposed to play?"Davis shot back right back on Instagram while he was in Hawaii.
"Your father gave you your money," he stated, referring to Austin 3 year 35 million deal with the Clippers. "You ain't work for it, motherfucker ... I was there. I seen you at practice. You ain't give a fuck. Thinking you all that, wearing them tight ass pants. Your father gave you all of that money, so you could wear those tight ass pants. But keep your fucking mouth closed, man ... You're a fucking bum, who's been given the world. Shut up and just stay under your father."Is Big Baby risking being black-balled in the NBA? Because Doc does have a long history with the league and could make things difficult for him. Right now, the 31-year-old is a free agent.
