This is as close as Glen Davis gets to a vow of silence.
As the Orlando Magic prepare to face the Brooklyn Nets on Monday night, the emotional power forward plans to avoid talking to referees after questionable calls and non-calls.
Davis received a technical foul in each of Orlando's last four games for complaining to referees.
"I'm not going to say 'Hi,' " he pledged. "I'm not going to say, 'How are you doing?' I'm just going to come here and play. That's it because it's been messing up my game, messing up the flow of my game, and I've got to grow up."
Davis' tech midway through the third quarter of the Magic's loss to the Detroit Pistons on Sunday raised his technical-foul count this season to five and left him on the hook for a total of $10,000 in accumulated fines. Additional techs will result in more stringent fines. Players don't receive an automatic one-game suspension until they commit their 16th technical in a given season.
