Former Hawk Tossed From Practice
I don't usually talk about what former Hawkeye players are up to, but this was too good to pass up. Ricky Davis of the Boston Celtics got thrown out of practice yesterday by head coach Doc Rivers.
The Celtics' coach first pointed toward the trainer's room door and said, ``Get
out.'' When Davis stopped to argue from the doorway, Rivers barked, ``Go
home.''
Davis apparently started swearing and complaining about the officiating during the Celtics scrimmage, which was held in front of a group of area high school students. Classy. Non-Hawk fans might/might not remember that Davis left Iowa City for the NBA after averaging 15 ppg as a freshman in 1998, a decision that did not sit well with many Iowa fans.

I saw RickyD play in high school - my son was on the Muscatine team at the same time he was at Davenport North. He was a jerk and an asshole then; he hasn't changed much. His decision to go pro was driven by his class absenteeism; he went to precisely three classes the entire second semester of his freshman year. Those close to him said he was planning on going pro after one year at Iowa before he graduated from high school. Like I said earlier: he's a jerk and an asshole.
 
Thanks for the info, Bill. I'm young enough that I wasn't following basketball closely enough back then to know any of the things you mentioned. And go Mark Twain! Heh.
