Vin Baker will be suspended Thursday by the Boston Celtics so that he can deal with an alcohol problem, the Boston Globe reported.

A meeting is planned Thursday morning between Baker, his teammates and the coaching staff. At the meeting, Baker will discuss his future with the team, the newspaper reported.

Also, Baker will serve a two-week suspension as mandated by the team. The club is expected to announce it today in a release.

Baker told the Globe he is not retiring or taking a buyout.

"We're gonna talk about some things,'' Baker said. "Coach (Jim) O'Brien and I have some things we want to talk about. I haven't spoken to anybody yet. We're going to talk (today). Communication is good. There won't be anything negative. It will be full of positives. I'm going to talk about my role. I'm not retiring. I'm not leaving the team. I'm not getting bought out. None of that. There's no secret at all. Coach and I will talk about my role on the team and we'll talk about a few different things.''

Asked by the paper if he would be with the team for the remainder of the season, Baker said, "Yes."

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Poor Vin Baker. His life is so difficult. My only question is this: If you can't get through life happily on $12 million a year for 12-20 minutes of basketball 82-100 times in that year, what would it take before Vinnie locked himself in the garage with the car running? 10 million? 8 million? Maybe if they forced him to actually work to contribute to the team?

Suspending Vin Baker is the NBA equivalent of the tree falling in the woods. What a pathetic waste.

Does this mean Vin won't be sitting on the floor next to the bench, as he's done the last three games for his DNP-CD? That the C's traded Vitaly for this stiff is even worse. Curtis Rowe, Sidney Wicks, meet Vin Baker. He's joining you in the pantheon of worst Celtics ever.

I'm actually disappointed by this. I have a ticket to Sunday's game at the ACC, and was looking forward to booing him whenever he touched the ball.

I would have been booing, what, two, maybe even three times.
