Davis: It was a 'stupid mistake'

 

Even though he needed a little prodding from general manager Danny Ainge next to him on the podium stage, Glen Davis on Friday night characterized his actions that resulted in a fractured last thumb last weekend. “It was a stupid mistake, a stupid mistake,” Davis said, after Ainge helped him answer the initial question. “Like Danny said, it’s something I most definitely have learned from looking forward.” Sporting a white cast on his right hand and forearm, Davis, in his first public comments, continued to express his remorse for getting involved in an altercation last Sunday that has put him out of action for the next six weeks. Ainge said Davis has made his apologies to everyone, including his team and now it’s time to move forward.

No suspension for Baby

Saying he wants Glen Davis around the team at practice and in meetings, Celtics general manager Danny Ainge announced before Friday's game that the forward will not be suspended for his actions that resulted in a fractured thumb two days before the season opener. "We have decided, as an organization, not to suspend Glen. We've levied a fine against him. We want him around the team, we want him with the team on the road. This was an unfortunate incident. Glen has apologized to owners and teammates and coaches and fans and everybody and it's just time to move forward and put it behind us." For more coverage, visit the Green Street blog.

Gammons: '[Pedro] is a magical guy'

ESPN's Peter Gammons joined the Big Show on Friday afternoon to talk about Pedro Martinez' start at Yankee Stadium, Alex Rodriguez and the use of instant replay in baseball going forward. When asked about Pedro's performance on Thursday night, Gammons said "He likes being the arch villain." Gammons later described Pedro as "a magical guy" and even went as far to say that "I felt there was a feeling in New York that they were watching a special guy."
 

On the subject of the use of instant replay in baseball, Gammons said "It's not that tough...but I think [Bud Selig] can be convinced." Gammons went on to say that "it's going to take the positioning of public opinion because that is what his leadership reacts to."

Julien: '[Chara] can be better'

WILMINGTON, Mass -- Zdeno Chara has been inconsistent through 11 games this season and certainly isn't up to his Norris Trophy standards while putting up six assists for the Black and Gold. The 32-year-old has had his "up" moments such as a 29:38 masterpiece against the New York Islanders when he put up an assist and a pair of shots on goal, but he hasn't been able to sustain them over a long stretch.
 
The blueliner was out working on his game before and after practice last week, and taking extra shots from the point positions while attempting  to get more shots toward the cage during the power play. When asked about his captain's play, B's coach Claude Julien didn't pull any punches and said that Chara needs to find his "happy zone" just like the rest of the team.
 
"[Chara] has been good, but can be better. He knows that," said Julien. "He's been good and there are some games where...
