Glen Davis Has Lost A Lot of Weight

glen_davis_2013NEW YORK – On Friday night, Orlando Magic forward Glen “Big Baby’’ Davis will return to Madison Square Garden – site of the worst injury of his basketball career – as a different man.

Make that much less of a man – and that’s a very good thing in Davis’ case.

Fresh off a spectacular 33-point effort spread over 50 minutes Tuesday in Philadelphia, Davis will take the Madison Square Garden court Friday night as slim as he’s been in, well, almost a lifetime.

“Eighth grade. Yeah, really, it’s the lightest I’ve been since the eighth grade,’’ said Davis, seemingly shocked himself. “This time it’s consistent (with the weight loss). There have been times when I’ve lost a lot of weight, but I’d just gain it right back. But as far as consistently staying at this weight and staying down, it’s been since the eighth grade when I was this thin.’’
