Where did you get the name Big Baby?
Well I was a pretty big kid, obviously. But the name started in pop warner football. I had to play senior football when I was a pee-wee and all the older kids used to pick on me. I’d get frustrated and start crying, so the coach started calling me “big baby” and I guess it just stuck!
What is your favorite memory from your high school playing days? College?
All the accolades like being named to the McDonalds All-American, were great. But my favorite memory of high school is winning two state titles, those are memories you never forget. Doesn’t get much better than that. Similarly in college the personal achievements were awesome, but going all the way to the Final Four in 2006 was pretty special.
What is your best skill on the court? Off the court?
Setting screens! I’m the blue-collar guy that does all the work the superstars won’t do. I love getting my teammates open for shots, and a lot of times it gets me open too.
Off the court, I love to cook. And I am a pretty good chef!
What’s the hardest thing to pick up about the pro game when you come into the league?
The speed of the game. Everything happens a step faster than at the college level.
You’ve been in the league 7 years now, what do you remember most about your rookie year?
Winning a championship with Boston!
How do you take care of your body? What do you eat -- or what do you not eat?
Over the years I have learned what I need to maintain a high level of competition. As a big guy I have to work a little harder than others to stay in shape. I eat a lot of gluten free foods, and maintain a pretty strict calorie count.
What are you doing when you’re not playing basketball?
When I am not playing basketball, I spend every chance I get with my lovely daughter Amari.
What are your plans after the NBA?
I would really love to do some commentary and broadcasting work for a TV network, get my Shaq on! Haha!!

The Glen “Big Baby” Davis Foundation’s mission is to steer inner city youth away from defiant behavior through a focus on literacy, healthy lifestyles, and recreational activities. Its mission is supported by donations from individuals, corporations, grants and fundraising. The Glen “Big Baby” Davis Foundation has 5 core initiatives and programs:
Big Baby Books
The “Booking it With Baby” Literacy Tour
Big Baby Reading Centers
A Big Baby Healthy Lifestyle
Glen Davis Scholarship and Endowment Fund
The Glen “Big Baby” Davis Foundation launched in the summer of 2011 with an annual event, Booking it with Baby, in partnership with the East Baton Rouge Parish Library System. The foundation will join with the library to utilize its mobile units, Books on Wheels, to bring books and literacy to kids in the community at various camps and libraries throughout the city. In it’s first year, the Booking it with Baby tour reached over 1,500 kids ages 5-15.
Our goal is to create awareness of childhood literacy and demonstrate the positive impact reading has on youth and on the entire Baton Rouge community. To reach our goal, we need your support. We admire and are grateful for the support already received and ask that you also join in support with us to make this annual event, and the foundation, a success.
