Glen Davis upset about missing PB&J sandwich

Magic forward Glen Davis didn’t get his nickname from being scrawny. Before Tuesday’s game with the Pistons, “Big Baby” went searching for his pre-game peanut butter and jelly sandwich, which apparently was supposed to be made by rookie Andrew Nicholson. Davis interrupted an interview Nicholson was having with Fox Sports Detroit’s Justin White to interrogate.  He was disgusted...

Glen Davis asks Orlando Magic rookie: Where is my PB&J sandwich? (video)

As part of some strange hazing ritual that is as odd as it is chock-full of necessary vitamins and minerals, it appears rookies on the Orlando Magic squad must provide veterans — especially those veterans on the larger size who go by the moniker ‘Big Baby” — a daily ration of at minimum one peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Poor Magic rookie Andrew Nicholson learned that...

Magic have much to take away from 1st half

There is no room for moral victories in the NBA. There are no almosts, no what ifs, no stat lines for nice tries. There are only wins and losses. In the first 41 games of the regular season, the Orlando Magic have lost 13 more games than theyve won. Their 14-27 record includes some highs, such as beating both the Clippers, who have the third-best record in the league, and the...

Magic's offense finally finds its rhythm

There is one positive for the Magic even through this stretch of losing 15 of 17 games. While the defense has fallen apart, the offense has picked up the slack and has played extremely well. In the last 10 games (where Orlando has gone 2-8, mind you), the Magic have had an average offensive rating of 106.9. The team's offensive rating for the season is 103.2, good for 21st...

Celtics Interested in JJ Redick

While everyone has been talking about the Lakers downfall, the Celtics haven’t been that much better. They are looking old and shooting horribly lately, so they are looking to bring in some help before trading deadline. Hearing Celts, even before season-worst 7-for-32 shooting from 15+ feet in NYK loss, have ramped up their interest in Magic’s J.J. Redick — Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine...

DeRozan deflates Magic with buzzer beater

The urgency was awoken within the Magic late in the fourth quarter. Wittling down an 11-point lead would no longer cut it with time running out. Drastic action was needed. A J.J. Redick 4-point play to tie the game with 50 seconds left. A Glen Davis offensive rebound and pass to E'Twaun Moore for a game-re-tying floater with 20 seconds left. A key foul from Davis had the...

Big Baby Interrupts Rookies Interview To Demand Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich (video)

As we constantly remind folks on here, Glen Big Baby Davis is a different type of cat.  Orlando Magic rookie Andrew Nicholson was giving Fox Sports an interview when Davis interrupted to remind him of something. See Nicholson is a rookie, and in professional sports leagues, rookies go through some sort of hazing whether it be carrying bags, getting breakfast, or in Nicholson’s...
