“Big Baby” fined for acting like a big baby

Glen Davis, also known as “Big Baby” has been fined by the Orlando Magic after he was caught on camera breaking a computer in the lobby of a motel. TMZ posted the video of his meltdown The amount of the fine was not released.

“We will not tolerate or condone this type of behavior,” Magic general manager Rob Hennigan said. “As we have stated repeatedly, when a player puts on an Orlando Magic uniform, he is representing something much greater than himself. We expect our players to uphold a certain standard of conduct and character at all times.”

 

True to form, Davis apologized on Twitter:

In regards to the incident that occurred on Friday night, I want to sincerely apologize for my actions. There is no excuse for what I did…

I was obviously wrong and I take full responsibility. I apologize to the Magic, my fans and the city of Orlando.

It’s done. It’s over. We’ll move on.

Attention NBA players: HGH testing coming to a city near you

In the wake of the latest MLB scandal to rock the sports world, NBA Commissioner David Stern announced that the NBA is well on its way to begin testing for HGH, or the human growth hormone.

According to USA Today, Stern met media in Minneapolis saying that the league is paying close attention to the MLB and NBA as they address HGH testing in their organizations. While it could be as early as next seaon that testing begins, Stern says that’s not set in stone.

Well, this could be interesting. Players being tested in the NBA could change the nature of the game. While the league does monitor for illegal drugs HGH wasn’t on the list–and what will the sanctions be? Will a player be suspended games and/or banned from it? Could their record, like Lance Armstrong’s be tainted and wins stripped from their record? Or, will the NBA have HGH on paper, but take a more lenient stance?

I would hope the NBA would go the distance, like the MLB and become more aggressive not just on HGH but on all banned performance enhancing drugs (PEDs). In a world of highly competitive, aggressive and ego-driven men it would be naive to thing that some of them are not doing something to get a better competitive advantage. 

Well, the good news is that the players have been put on notice.

No excuses. If they’re using, it’s time to clean it up.

What do you think?
