The Smoking Gun

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. Counsel for the the Los Angeles 
Clippers guard, a two-time All-Star and novice film producer, yesterday 
sent news outlets a letter threatening legal action over the personal 
photos, videos, and audio stored on the computer (a copy of the letter 
sent to TSG by the law firm Lavely & Singer can be found below). 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," Briggs added. The 30-year-old Davis, who earns about $12 
million annually, recently produced "Crips and Bloods," a documentary 
about the nation's most notorious street gangs. (2 pages)
