Big Baby the Ballerina
Glen “Big Baby” Davis claims he’s at his lowest weight since eighth grade, which may explain his 33-point outburst Tuesday night against Philadelphia. SI’s Luke Winn profiled Davis in 2006 during his sophomore year at LSU and discovered that the big man took a ballet class in high school “to chase a girl.” So with Davis all slimmed down, I thought it’d be appropriate to bust out these ballet pics SI shot for the story.

This is Gross
Yesterday, we showed you Roy Hibbert’s deformed elbow. Today we have another deformed body part - the finger of former NFL wideout Antwaan Randle El. If that’s his finger, I wonder what Randle El’s neck looked like after this play.

SI Vault Photo of the Day
Taylor Hall recorded a hat trick during the Oilers 8-2 drubbing of the Avalache last night, which resulted in one female fan throwing her bra to the ice. But she has a long way to go before she can match the excitement of these female fans.
Odds and Ends
Jimmie Johnson is recreating scenes from The Hangover while on vacation in Las Vegas … I love the air guitar celebration from the Knicks bench during last night’s game … Total Pro Sports has a look at NFL logos redesigned as Disney characters … The NFL Films special on the band Phish and their Russell Wilson chant has an air date … The cousin of Avs defenseman Nick Holden had one of the signs of the year during Thursday’s game.
