If you have been following the NBA Finals between the Boston Celtics and L.A. Lakers, then you know how important the bench contribution has been for the Celtics. They basically won game four for the Celts. It has been the play specifically of Glen “Big Baby” Davis and Nate “KryptoNate” Robinson that has elevated the bench.
Not only are these two guys playing well. They are dominating the airwaves and blogsites because they are so animated and fun to watch. After one particularly charged play in game four, Davis was a man possessed when at half court, he delivered a primal scream and slobbered all over himself. Robinson jumped on his back and joined in the excitement.
It has led to the two being dubbed by Robinson himself as “Donkey” and “Shrek”.
What a great name. It obviously fits these two well.
