    I like his quote:


    When you're dealing with the brain, I guess what's happening in football has impacted everybody. He got touched up a little bit last night. That happens a lot in basketball. It's just that now they treat everybody like they have white gloves and pink drawers and it's getting old. It's just the way the league is now."

    -- Hornets coach Monty Williams

    I'm pretty sure some left wing media nut job is going to have something to say about the pink drawers comment, but Monty is right in my opinion.

    This is not the NFL, or rugby league...this is Basketball. If he was KO'd, ok. But missing games over a love tap?

    I think a grade II concussion sustained playing basketball is the same as a grade II concussion sustained playing football, and should be handled the same way. There's no reason to mess around with a player's health after he suffers a brain injury when it's three games into the regular season.

    Why does it matter whether it's basketball or football or anything? A concussion is a concussion. The only difference is that football players suffer more concussions than basketball players. But if it's a concern for football, it should be a concern for any sport.

    In case you dont get my sarcasm, let me put it in plain words.

    KEEP THE POLITICAL CRAP IN D&D WHERE IT BELONGS

    He's just a baby. You can see after taking a couple of questions from the journalists that he sees the PR danger of what he's saying and starts backpedaling. So, he finishes saying he's just complaining because he wants his guy to play. But, that's the mentality that made concussions such a big deal in football in the first place -- a guy gets his brain knocked around and he says he can play because he doesn't want to look like a wuss, and the coach will let him play because he wants to win the game. If the league wants to keep concussions from being a problem, they can't let players or coaches decide when he's ready to play again. They need rules around it and team doctors' say-so (even the team doctors are susceptible to pressure though).
