The Celtics' Glen "Big Baby" Davis, has been fined $25,000 for an outburst directed toward a fan during a Wednesday night loss against the Detroit Pistons in Detroit.

According to reports published earlier, a loudmouthed Pistons fan named Scott Zack, who was earlier warned by arena security to restrain himself, kept referring to Davis as "fat boy" and multiple other inappropriate names.

Witnesses say, Davis turned during a break in play, and shouted a profane verse, referring to the fan practicing fellatio upon Davis.

I've seen this happen before and though I believe the fine was completely justified, I don't believe fines implemented by teams or the NBA, will keep players from doing these kind of things.

This is the outcome of poor training and a lack of discipline.

Players know opposing fans will be trying to get in their head and responding to personal attacks, no matter how vulgar, is unacceptable.

These type of things need to be drilled into a player's head.

I wouldn't disagree with a tougher penalty implemented against Big Baby, such as a suspension. Players must realize that confrontation on and off the court is not acceptable.
