As the dirty/not dirty debate over this play rages on, the league has ruled that Glen Davis will not be suspended for it.
After reviewing footage from the Celtics’ win over Cleveland Friday night, when the Celtics forward was assessed a Flagrant 2 foul and ejection for his clothesline-style takedown of Anderson Verajao, NBA officials decided today that no further penalty was necessary.
Good news for the Celtics, who are obviously shorthanded already.
And one further note… I want to publicly clarify my comment about Tom Ziller and how much Celtics basketball he watches. I know how that can come off… but I was trying to make the argument that the full body of work should show that the Celtics aren’t dirty… and even someone who watches every nationally televised game will not have seen enough of a sample to really make that determination.
I know people have strong opinions on both sides… so please, keep it respectful in the comments… and don’t go running over to FanHouse to bash Tom. Don’t go acting like those Lakers trolls who used to hang around here.
