For most players on the Boston Celtics’ roster, the focus on each season’s Media Day proceedings is on the campaign ahead, but as a rookie two way point guard, JD Davison has yet to forge a foundation off of which fans can base expectations apart from setting a record with the Celtics in Las Vegas Summer League for the most assists scored in the annual exhibition series.
But in a Media Day interview with NBC Sports Boston on Monday, Davison shared a little bit about his past, confirming he had indeed once scored a 29-point, 14-rebound, 11-assist, 11-steal quadruple-double in high school. “I was just out there having fun,” he explained. “We were up by quite a bit.”
“I think I had the triple-double first, and my brother was like ‘You need four more assists,'” he added. “I’m like, ‘For what?’ and he never told me, so I started passing the ball and got four assists.”

Asked specifically how he managed to pick up 11 steals, Davison replied with a wry smile “I was just out there running like a chicken with its head cut off.”
