â†µâ‡¥A laptop containing "a variety of private images" of NBA star Baron Davis has been stolen and the athlete's lawyers are threatening legal action if the material is published. [...] â†µâ‡¥â†µI expect the web to soon run wild with totally funny speculation as to what these images are. Maybe we can get some combination of undress and gangs in there, since Davis recently produced the well-meaning but crappy Crips and Bloods documentary. That would make him like the unholy uber-spawn of Ray J and J.R. Smith, and in some ways, finally ready to step up and be a part of the Clippers organization. Or is this letter part of an elaborate hoax by which this "private" material will get leaked? That would also be totally Sterling. â†µ
â†µâ‡¥Davis's counsel reported that the laptop theft has been reported to police, who are "investigating the matter." The photos and videos "depict, among other things, a variety of private images of our client, his associates and his colleagues," wrote lawyer William J. Briggs, II. Davis "had a reasonable expectation of enjoying total privacy with regard to the images," â†µ
â†µBut seriously law-breakers, if you're listening, leave Baron's business off the web, no matter how interesting (or uninteresting) it is. I got my computer stolen once, and to this day, I'm eternally grateful that no one ever put the pictures of my cat eating a duck carcass up on TMZ. I guess I'm saying, the law may threaten, but karma saves. There's a way that this heinous crime can work out well for all involved.
