I have 3 things right off the top of my head but there could be more.
Watch the whole thing.
I shouldn’t have to beg.
This is the most awkward thing I may have ever seen.
This guy, whatever his name is, makes like a semi-but-not-really-that racist joke.
Not only was it semi-well-you-know-the-drill racist but it was just dumb and bad and uneccessary to the infinity power.
I mean really.
They are taking a guy off the field IN A NECK BRACE.
He might HAVE A CONCUSSION.
And lo and behold, you’re making a bad, rude, unprovoked, semi-deranged joke.
What is wrong with you?
Oh really? Nothing? It was just bad timing?
Brad Miller got absolutely destroyed by the fury fists of Rajon Rondo.
Where is the love/flagrant foul?
Now some might say, good firm foul.
I say Brad Miller started bleeding from his mouth.
Some might say it wasn’t intentional.
But the NBA doesn’t outline flagrants with any mention of intent:
“A flagrant foul-penalty (1) is unnecessary contact committed by a player against an opponent.”
Was the shot to the face unnecessary? OF COURSE.
It was a hard foul that should have been called but was not.
Now you may be thinking, “Please extend your argument using statistics”
I say “Okay”
Brad Miller: Career Free Throw Percentage 80.1%
That is the first time I have ever fact checked ANYTHING.
He clanged not one but TWO free throws.
Brad Miller isn’t a rookie, he wasn’t nervous.
He was slightly, a little bit, possibly phased by the head shot he just took, courtesy of the Kia Rondo.
The only viable argument would be that the announcers jinxed him by saying:
“The Chicago Bulls have made 16 free throws in a row thus far”
That is the only other explanation.
I had some commentary on the swine flu but its too caustic.
I’ll hold off.
It could get ugly.
So to get your mind off of that, here’s a picture of DeShawn Stevenson.
