I'm not sure if anyone saw the Bulls/Wolves game from last night - but was that not just totally sick? He basically took a RVD-style bump to the back of his head on the hardwood floor and he was carried out on a stretcher. Well, ESPN sez he has a sprained neck and is out of the hospital - don't know when he's coming back.
You know after what happened to Jay Williams - this is something the Bulls don't need. I guess Old Man Scottie or Hinrich has to run the point now.
OWOWOW. Saw it, and that could NOT have felt good. If there were more wrestling fans, I bet we would've seen a "Holy Shit!" chant. Hope he can recover quickly... good thing it was just a sprained neck.
That had to hurt...but on a plus side it'll likely make him available to you if you are in a fantasy league...if you have a player who you've been meaning todrop, it wouldn't be a bad idea to dump the guy sitting on your bench, grab Crawford and put him on IR, then scoop up another player with the open spot...this way, if the other player bombs you have Crawford in the wings when he comes back.
Pierce leaving Boston would be on par with Kobe leaving the Lakers. It won't happen. This does seem like a Win-win; - Pierce takes a paycut, Celtics win. - Pierce gets more money than what he might have if the upcoming CBA talks cut monies.
