Big Baby's Wallet Gets Lighter

New, comments

The Herald reports:

The Celtics learned this afternoon that Glen Davis will be fined $25,000 for his outburst in Detroit Wednesday night, when the Celtics forward responded to a heckler with an obscene phrase that was loud enough to carry over both the team’s television and radio broadcasts.

Co-owner Wyc Grousbeck, openly critical of Davis last September, when Big Baby broke the thumb on his right (shooting) hand during a fight with an associate, chose to keep his comments closer to the vest this time.

"The NBA will be fining the player," Grousbeck said via text message. "We will keep our discussions with him in house."

The NBA assessed the fine for "directing inappropriate language towards a fan."
