It's not like this is the guy with an Abraham Lincoln tattoo on his Adam 's apple, or the guy who was once arrested for plying a 14-year-old with brandy in a motel room. Or the guy who started a fight in Game 6 of the Finals on Sunday because players on the other team dared to act as boorishly as him. Or the guy that followed up a Finals win by wearing a T-shirt that was so tasteless and unfunny that we didn't want to post it on this site.
It's not like he's this guy (as originally reported on ESPNDallas.com):
Irving police said they were called to the Grand Venetian apartments about 10:30 p.m. local time Tuesday to check out a report of an intoxicated person walking in the area.
They found Stevenson, who does not live there, and he did not appear to know where he was. He was given a field sobriety test, and based on the test, his statements and police observations, he was arrested for public intoxication.
[Irving public information officer John Argumaniz said:] "Basically, he was intoxicated to a point where [police] didn't feel comfortable letting him walk away or leave. They didn't have any other options at that point."
Honestly, wandering around drunkenly is the least offensive of all the things I listed above, save for perhaps getting a tattoo of our 16th president. He wasn't attempting to get in a car or start a fight or light illegal fireworks or hit on a sandwich artist or even relieve himself on the Alamo.
That we know of, at least. It's DeShawn Stevenson. Let's not put anything past him.
