Davis: Pierce ‘Doesn’t Have to Talk to Me’
(Glen “Big Baby”) Davis already has made his position clear. He tweeted last week, out of desperation, that the players should move to accept a 51-49 percent split of basketball related revenue (BRI), and end the process. He feels the same way now about hammering out a 50-50 split, the best offer ownership is likely to put on the table.
“Yeah, that (tweet) was true for how I felt,” he said. “I want to play, but at the same time I want us all to be on the right track. I want something that is going to be fair for both the owners and the players. We should get what we’re worth, but we should also get back to playing.
“Hopefully we can work on this together. We have to see the fans’ side of it, too.”
Alhough no longer officially on the team roster, Davis’ source of information remains Paul Pierce the Celtics’ player representative.
“Paul has e-mailed me. He called once,” said Davis, sounding disturbed that Pierce has not been in more frequent contact. “He doesn’t advise me on any of this. That’s what my agent does. He’s Paul Pierce. He doesn’t have to talk to me.”
