Alright, let's face it....basketball is getting violent. No, not Ron Artest-Stephen Jackson violent silly. There has been a rash of injuries that are knocking off player after NBA player this year. They are seriously dropping like flies these days. We know about that all too well here in Blazerville.
Tonight in Seattle, this years #2 pick--Kevin Durant--went down with a sprained ankle that will keep him out until the start of the regular season. Xrays were negative...but it is cause for concern. Maybe its the water in the Northwest. Of course, Greg Oden was mysteriously injuried....and is done for the year. Adam Morrison--who grew up in Spokane and is now playing for Charlotte--tore a ligament in his left knee is also done for the season. And now Durant. In fact, he's not even on the plane tonight enroute to Portland. Bum deal indeed. Before you know it...every player in the game will be saddled up with braces from head to toe. May not be a bad idea.
