Of Funny Bones, Piston Strip Shows and Facials

Sunday, March 09, 2008

Crazy title huh? Well I thought it appropriate for some of the oddest going ons I've ever seen in NBA Basketball. No this doesn't have anything to do with Dan Shulman or Doris Burke (more on Shulman tomorrow), but it's still pretty entertaining.

Tayshaun Prince got pretty banged up on a foul during the Bulls game. It turned out he only got hit on his funny bone, but after a couple of minutes getting the feeling back in his arm he had some blood on his jersey.

That's when the fun started....



Whooooooo! Now that's worth the price of admission. Think of how much fun he's going to get made of after the game. Oh and there was also this.....



Everyone else calls it a facial, so I figured I should as well. That's just nasty.

"Distaff side"? Takes one to know one...I kid. Doris Burke is starting to grow on me as an analyst, sorta.

AA - Is Dan Shulman ESPN's best announcer? They're working him like he is - from Denver to Durham to Detroit in three days.

Got pretty banged up? He was barely touched! I knew as soon as he went down that he was fine...maybe if he ate more than 2 Triscuits a day he'd be a little tougher.

Noce, I take it you've never been hit on your funny bone have you?

Not to mention, since Tayshaun Prince started starting games in 2001/02 he has yet to miss a game.

That certainly seems pretty tough to me.

Tayshaun is one of the toughest players in the league. You failed to mention that, after getting up from his injury, he hit both free throws, then a 3-pointer, and then a huge slam dunk, scoring 15 points in the final 17 minutes.

He may look skinny, but do NOT make him angry!!

The funny thing is after that whole mess he went off on the Bulls. Maybe they should smack his funny bone before every game.
