BATH, Maine — Boston Celtics forward “Big Baby” Glen Davis is used to grappling with players under the basket. Now he can say he has grappled with lobster buoys and lines hauling lobster traps off the Maine coast.
Davis spent part of Saturday on a boat pulling traps off Bath before devouring two lobsters, steamed clams, swordfish, hamburgers and other offerings at a lobster bake for a promotion for a local lobster company, GetMaineLobster.com.
Davis said on Twitter: “I have a different respect for catching lobster. It was hard.”
GetMaineLobster.com owner Mark Murrell said he brought Davis to Maine to promote his idea of people going out on a lobster boat, pulling traps and then eating the catch at a lobster cookout.
