Hadn't thought of that, but seems plausible.
Joking aside ... I saw the end of a headline on the ticker last night that sounded like somebody was out there blaming the stadium for this. It was something about the goalpost being a couple of inches too close to the baseline or something?? Not sure if that is just overzealous reporters or if thats actually a story. Can't seem to find it anywhere.
I wonder how long it will be before professional teams start to discourage their players from participating in Team USA events and we see amateurs take their place. This was a big loss to the Pacers and with no cap relief they are going to have a tough time filling his spot.
I heard Jim Boeheim (US assistant coach) talking about that this morning and he made a point that these guys are always going to be playing basketball in the offseason anyway, whether organized or pickup. This injury is a fluke thing and it is probably better that they are playing in a regulated environment like Team USA than a pickup game in a gym somewhere.
