Glen Davis Not Thinking About Expiring Contract

Speaking with The Boston Globe's Julian Benbow at the Plummer Home for Boys in Salem, Massachusetts, Glen Davis touched on a number of topics, including his contract expiring at the end of the season, the addition of Shaquille O'Neal, and which areas the Celtics can improve in next season. 

As far as his contract is concerned (he's entering the final year of his most recent extension), Davis isn't dwelling on it too much:

I don't think about contract. When you think about contract, that's when you really don't focus on what you need to focus on. I'm just trying to focus on helping my team get back to the Finals and winning it.

Remember the thumb injury Davis suffered in an off-the-court altercation just prior to the start of last season? Well, he says the days of the incidents and borderline immaturity are behind him, particularly as a player:

This is the year of finally hitting that line of maturity of finally becoming that player that I knew I could be. This is the year of just all-around. Throughout my career, my three years being here, it's been up and down. When I play, you've seen glimpses, like, ‘Wow, this guy could start. Or come off the bench.' Glimpses up and down. But this is the year of Glen becoming that whole player that 10 years down the road, eight years down the road will hopefully be an all-star.

Davis would also like to see a greater sense of urgency from his squad this coming season:

More of a sense of urgency throughout the year, but at the same time being healthy. Because being [injured] kind of hurt us. Also, having a sense of urgency hurt us because we didn't have it as much as we should have. We've got some things to work on. We know we're capable of getting there.
