Jeremy Lin got hurt last night in a head-on (HA) collision with Larry Sanders in the third quarter vs. the Milwaukee Bucks – Lin came back to the game in thre fourth with renewed vigor, a nasty looking bug-laid-eggs-in-my-head bump and five stitches to his head. Yowzers!
Wait, I know exactly what you’re thinking. If you weren’t watching the Houston Rockets and Milwaukee Bucks play tonight, you are probably wondering how Garry Shandling got onto the court? Right? That’s what you’re wondering?
More importantly, doesn’t Shandling know better than to break his fall with Jeremy Lin’s head? On a more serious note – I’m dating myself with these references.
Seriously though, I love Lin’s scrappiness, but his recklessness worries me a bit. The headbutt by Larry Sanders really isn’t his fault and I’m glad he was okay tonight (he got five stitches and started the fourth quarter), but the dude ends up on the floor a lot. Like a lot, a lot.
At least the Rox wore their red/gold jerseys…
