MEDFORD -- Speaking after a team-sponsored charity appearance, free agent forward Glen Davis acknowledged his poor postseason and said that he wasn't mentally ready to play.
"I pride myself on playing good basketball, especially when you need it. Every postseason I’ve played tremendously good to the point where it was like, wow, and this [spring] it didn’t happen," Davis said. "Because I felt mentally I wasn’t ready and prepared enough for what was in front of me. It affected the way I played and that’s what I’ve been doing this offseason, concentrating on that and making sure postseasons like this don’t happen to me."
With a potential lockout looming, Davis in limbo as he approaches free agency. He said that the thought of leaving Boston has "crossed my mind." Asked for what he was looking for in free agency, Davis said, "I can’t perform the way I need to perform if I’m not Glen Davis. I need to be in a situation where I can be Glen Davis. If it’s here with the Celtics or with somebody else I just want to make sure I’m Glen Davis."
