The Clippers’ Austin Rivers was a guest on Fox Sports’ Undisputed on Wednesday, and he made some not-so-nice comments about his former teammate Glen “Big Baby” Davis that earned a furious Instagram video reply from Davis.
On the show, Skip Bayless asked Rivers for his thoughts on Davis saying he’s caused “resentment” in the Clippers locker room since his dad his Clippers head coach Doc Rivers. Rivers responded by saying, “That’s just Baby talking,” but then he added, “If someone is constantly out of shape, late, don’t remember plays, how the hell are you supposed to play?”
Davis did not appreciate Rivers saying those things — not one bit — so he replied in a video in which he calls Rivers a liar, tells him “your father gave you your money” and makes fun of the “tight ass pants” he wears at practice (with quite a few expletives tossed in there).
Here’s a full transcript of what he says in an Instagram video that he took time to make, even though he’s on vacation:
“I’m in Hawaii minding my own business, and I look over on Undisupted and I see old punk ass Austin Rivers talking (expletive). C’mon man. Yeah I might’ve been overweight a little bit. Probably late for one or two practices. C’mon man. Don’t know the plays? C’mon bruh, you’re lying now, bruh. Now you’re (expletive) lying. C’mon now, man. Now that’s a (expletive) lie.
“Second of all, your father gave you your money. How can you — like, don’t say (expletive) to me. Your father gave you your money. You ain’t work for it (expletive). Type of (expletive). I was there. I seen you at practice. You didn’t give a (expletive), thinking you all that wearing them tight ass pants and you know, your father gave you all that money, so you can go wear those tight ass pants, but keep your (expletive) mouth closed, man. Shut up, man. You’re a (expletive) bum who’s been given the world. Shut up and just stay under your father.”
Warning: NSFW language in video
Plus, Davis tagged TMZ, Undisputed, Austin Rivers, Doc Rivers, the Clippers and ESPN in the caption that says, “Hey Austin shut up please.” The man is angry.
At least one other NBA player found Davis’ rant entertaining.
I wonder what Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, Kendrick Perkins and Rajon Rondo think about this. The five of them were on Garnett’s show Area 21 just a few weeks ago. They all won a championship together on the Celtics in 2008 under Doc Rivers.
