Glen Davis returned to TD Garden on Monday night for Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals between the Celtics and Miami Heat. While there, Big Baby rooted for the C’s and engaged in some trash talk with Heat center Dewayne Dedmon.
According to Law360, a Manhattan federal judge on Tuesday scolded Davis for repeatedly violating his bail conditions. Davis was one of 18 former NBA players charged in October with defrauding the league’s health and welfare benefit plan out of millions of dollars. He was released on $200,000 bail, at which point his travel was restricted to New York and California. TD Garden, of course, is located in neither state.
