    Default Baron Davis: Herniated "D*ck"? HAHAH

    A typo by the Charlotte Observer noted that injured New York Knicks point guard Baron Davis was suffering from a "herniated dick" instead of his actual herniated disc injury.

    Romenesko first pointed out the hilarious mistake by the well-meaning newspaper on Wednesday. The paragraph read as, "Ex-Charlotte Hornet Baron Davis signed with the Knicks after being cut by Cleveland under the amnesty clause. Davis is recovering from a herniated dick."

    How exactly did that mistake make its way into the newspaper?

    Observer executive sports editor Mike Persinger explained in a blog post that it was simply a typo by an experienced editor.

    "Observer reporter Rick Bonnell wrote the preview box, and in it he wrote that Davis, a former Charlotte Hornet, is recovering from a "herniated disc" in his back. The box was edited by an experienced copy editor, the reporter's first line of defense, and moved along in the production process as written.

    My face was already sore from smiling during the Raptors game. This just strained some cheek muscles.

    I think that "experienced editor" is a troll.
