Just when it was safe to return to the NBA

Antonio DavisSome guys just don’t get it. Even after Ron Artest’s fifty-umpteen game suspension last year for starting the Detroit chapter of the Fight Club, the message didn’t quite get across to Antonio Davis. The New York Knicks forward was ejected from Wednesday night’s game against the Chicago Bulls, for confronting a fan TEN ROWS up in the stands.

Davis had enough smarts to refrain from making contact with any fans (maybe that had something to do with the fact that he didn’t have a posse backing him up like Artest did in Detroit), but he did leave the court and entered the stands.

NBA commish David Stern has got to be pulling his hair out over this one. His response to Artest’s actions should have been enough to serve as a deterrent to similar activity, but Davis actions just prove that stupidity trumps greed any day of the week.

Artest now also has someone to promote his next album. We assume Davis will have plenty of free time on his hands. Bring the noise...
