Glen Davis works out in LSU's new practice facility.Celtics forward Glen Davis recently dropped in on some new digs at his old stomping ground on the campus of LSU. The school's sports information department posted a story in which Davis talks about Miami and a beefed up Eastern Conference, coming back home to the Baton Rouge area, and being united with fellow LSU product Shaquille O'Neal.

Davis said he has been working hard, working especially to get his game to be a straight four player like he was in 2008-09 season. That will be more his spot with the Celtics addition of Jermaine O'Neal and some other guy who did his thing at LSU as well, Shaquille O'Neal.

"It's crazy," Davis said smiling. "I can remember days when I was just a little boy watching him play here at LSU. Shaq was everywhere in the city. To be in the NBA and play against him and now having him on the same team it's unbelievable. I'm so glad he's on our team and he can help us get back to that championship."

Now that he's about to enter his fourth season and as the owner of an NBA championship ring, Davis admits to understanding and feeling all there is about the Celtics' longstanding traditions and history.

"Most definitely, especially when you win a championship because that's what the Boston Celtics are most known for," he said. "Being a part of the NBA and in Boston, the people there have welcomed me as a part of their family and to be able to play with the Celtics has really been a blessing."
