during the knicks-bulls game last night. knicks forward antonio davis ran into the stands to protect his wife from a drunk.
said davis: ""i witnessed my wife being threatened by a man that i learned later to be intoxicated. iI saw him touch her, and i know i should not have acted the way i did, but i would have felt terrible if i didn't react. there was no time to call security. it happened too quickly."
i know that davis is the head of the player's union, and he had to say "i know i should not have acted the way i did" because he can't give any justification for going into the stands, but i don't think there's any doubt he acted completely appropriately. he did nothing wrong. in fact, he did everything he should have. he has to protect his wife and famliy.
he is not a man if he doesn't.
unfortunately, with the whole ron artest thing last year, he's probably gonna get suspended.
and if i'm antonio davis, i'd just accept it - with pride.
man's gotta do what a man's gotta do. and i don't know of anyone who should have a problem with that.
