Orlando Magic forward Glen Davis has expressed a desire in the past to rid himself of his “Big Baby” nickname. Throwing a temper tantrum in a hotel reception area isn’t a great way to accomplish that goal.
On Tuesday, TMZ posted a video that shows Davis completely crossing the line during some sort of disagreement at a Travelodge motel in Orlando last Friday. He reportedly walked into the motel and tried to book a room, but was informed that there were no rooms available. Davis lowered his head in frustration during his conversation with the hotel receptionist before reaching over the counter and grabbing the employee’s keyboard. He then threw the keyboard across the room before storming out.
Simply put, Big Baby lived up to his nickname. The hotel employee immediately called the police, but Davis was reportedly not arrested. According to TMZ, the hotel has been in contact with the Magic regarding the damages. Davis used Twitter to apologize for the meltdown.
