Former NBA player Rodney Rogers, a 12-year veteran and the 2000 NBA Sixth Man of the Year Award winner with the Phoenix Suns, was paralyzed last week when he fell off his all-terrain vehicle.
Rogers was drafted ninth overall by the Denver Nuggets in the 1993 NBA Draft, and ended up being something of a journeyman, playing two years with the Nuggets, four years with the Los Angeles Clippers, two-and-a-half with the Suns, half a year with the Boston Celtics, two with the New Jersey Nets, and split 2004-05 between the New Orleans Hornets and Philadelphia 76ers.
I'm sure I join my fellow Ws in extending our thoughts and prayers for a recovery.

Crazy. Clippers GM Elgin Baylow was on ESPN Radio here in Los Angeles today. I was only half paying attention, but I heard him defend the choice of Kittles over Quentin by saying something about Kittles being "such an awesome defensive weapon"....
