Former Cat Daniel Orton pulls a ‘Daniel Orton;’ leaves bench

Daniel Orton - photo by Gary Green | Orlando SentinelRemember a day back in March of 2010 when was wearing the blue and white?  And on that particular day he became upset at John Calipari for getting on him rather than teammate Eric Bledsoe and left the bench only to return a few moments later after Scott Padgett stopped him?  Seems he hasn't changed much.  From ESPN Florida:  “After Monday's loss, Daniel Orton, who was not inserted into the game despite the large deficit the Magic faced, appeared to leave the bench early. Glen Davis followed Orton and yelled at him for leaving the bench.”
