Glen Davis: “The thing we’re going to miss most about Dwight is his farting ability.”

OK, this is a cheap laugh. But it also isn’t.
You see, Dwight’s affinity for flatulence is well-chronicled, and there is a reason why he is holding out his finger in this Sports Illustrated cover photo. It is an inside joke I’m sure almost all of you know well.

When you are crowded around Dwight in the locker room post-game and it starts to smell like a Dutch Oven, you will have a good idea who to blame.
More on this subject, including all the background, comes in a fresh post from Michael Katz of USA Today.
That post includes more from Big Baby:
