Glen Davis Apologizes…For Doing Nothing.

I had planned on putting this up before I went to a concert tonight, but it wasn’t meant to be.  Oh well, it all reads the same.  While I was at work this morning I ran across this article.  On Sunday, Big Baby Glen Davis hit a jumper at the buzzer to beat the Orlando Magic and tie their playoff series at 2.  After the shot, he turned to celebrate with his teammates and inadvertently bumped a 12-year-old boy.  Boo. Hoo.

Here’s the video of the “incident.”

So there you go. I’m sure that little kid is at home sucking his thumb, suffering from the extreme emotional distress of having his hat knocked off by an NBA player.  Well, his Dad seemed to think he deserved an apology.  In fact, he had a few harsh words for Mr. Davis.  In an email to the NBA, he called Davis a “raging animal with no regard for fans’ personal safety.”

Overreact much?

I feel sorry for the son, honestly.  That kid could have called his friends and told them to look for him on TV.  Maybe he could’ve sent Davis an email and gotten a signed pair of shoes or something.  Instead, the kid’s Dad calls Davis a raging animal.  You know he’s going to get ridiculed to no end at school.  The kid didn’t even fall down, for crying out loud!

This is similar to the Shuan Ellis situation from last football season.  Except in that instance, the NFL screwed up by fining Ellis and the fans were fine with it.  Here, the NBA is rightly not going to do anything and the fans overreact.  It’s just kind of silly.

Here’s your 15 minutes of fame, Ernest Provetti.  Use it wisely.  Idiot.

  1. My goodness. I had to watch the video three times to see what you were talking about. Life is tough sometimes isn’t it?

  2. Maybe Mr. Provetti needs to find seats other than those on the floor if he’s so concerned for his little boy’s “safety”. I’d bet money he also used the classic line,”DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM??!!! Arrogance abounds!
