Delonte doubtful tonight

Delonte on floor Delonte West has had a lot of problems lately… most recently some sort of domestic incident that spilled over at an airport.

So it's no surprise that Delonte is probably not going to play tonight.  We know Glen Davis won't be playing for a while.  His fellow LSU Tiger Shaquille O'Neal talked about Baby today.

“Well, they call him Big Baby for a reason, because he’s my son,”
Shaq said a short while ago after the Cavaliers’ shootaround. “A lot of
people don’t know that.”

After the requisite laughter, O’Neal went on.

“But he’s a great player,” he said. “I’ve been knowing him ever
since (he was) a youngster. (He) works hard, has been working hard on
his game.

“It’s an unfortunate incident, but, you know, one thing about him
is he’s a focused individual. So he realizes that he may have made a
mistake, so he’s going to come back more focused than ever.”

Still waiting for more detail on Davis and exactly what the club will do with him, and what caused the altercation that led to the broken thumb.  A suspension would be a big deal for Baby since he hasn't had much of a career yet to pile up the cash.  Losing income now would be tough for him.

    I thought the 2 stupidest moves this offseason were the Cavs getting Shaq and the Lakers getting Artest (and losing Ariza). I’m still pretty sure about Shaq. At this point, regardless of how “well” he seems to be playing… he is a liability to any team he’s on. Too old, too fat, too slow. The Cavs got all nervous about Dwight and went out and got the biggest center they could find. But it won’t help them, it will only hurt.
    Not so sure about Artest… might have been wrong about that one.
    Most dangerous opponent for us is Orlando, especially if Vince keeps his head on straight and stays healthy. That’s one tough team.

    I love Shaq, he’s hilarious, I don’t give a shit if he plays for the Cavs. The guy could be a professional comedian.

    How long can they suspend him?

    Two big games tonight, and each team is missing a key player. Fortunately, we are the only one of the four that won’t be missing a starter. So that’s one thing to be happy about.
