Boston Celtics forward Glen Davis may be looking at a fine or a suspension after yelling an expletive at a heckler during last night’s road loss to the Detroit Pistons.
The fan repeatedly called Big Baby “fat boy” and encouraged him to lose some weight. Bonus points for creativity were not awarded.
Celtics coach Doc Rivers called Davis’ behavior “unacceptable.”
“I’m upset that we lost, people call me names, but
that’s part of the game. If you win the game, it keeps a lot of people
quiet,” Rivers said.
Both the Boston radio and television broadcasts picked up Davis’ swear.
The fan, Scott Zack, filed a complaint to league security, according to a report. He’d apparently been warned about heckling Davis earlier in the game.
Sure, Davis shouldn’t have stooped to the heckler’s level, but secretly, I kind of like it.
We’ve all sat next to the guy at the game whose trite insults get old after about the fourth time they open their mouth. If you’re like me, you kind of wish the massive athletes they’re challenging challenge them back at some time.
If you can’t take it, don’t dish it out all game.
