    Default Are NBA players woosies?

    you know the saying your a woos and a pussy and that makes you a woosy or something like that.

    Well, sometimes it seems some NBA players don't live by that rule. now, sometimes they are badly injured and you can get severe injuries playing this game. But, with nhl players seemingly get their teeth knocked out, go in for like root canal and come back out and play and NFL players taking serious knocks and playing the next game.

    It seems as though NBA players may be soft, to possibly even further strengthen my point, how many times have we seen Steve Nash take a serious spill or lickin' and come back and play the next game. Then, you hear about things like Stephen Curry sitting out his 7th! straight game with an "ankle injury". Now, maybe it's due to further complications or lack of specifics or maybe it can be attributed to everyone having different levels of dedication.

    However, I question whther some of these guys are just milking it due to them being on a bad team or laziness (sometimes it's a personal/family issue) or whther they are just being babies about it and should drag their ass onto the court and play through these seemingly "minor" injuries.

    I mean, I understand one or two games. but, once it get's close to ten these thoughts enter your brain.

    Steph Curry has his entire career to think about and I think his injury is quite serious. If he could shake it off easily I'm sure he would do that. It is difficult for me to believe Steph would feign injury and collect another easy paycheck when he is young and has not won anything. You just have to look at how many big men have lost their careers to knee injuries to see why NBA players are more cautious about even minor injuries.

    Not to mention it is the same ankle which he had surgery on this summer.

    Very valid points.

    Don't forget whenever there is an NBA 'fight' it is usually a 'slap-a-thon' or a punch and run - right Carmelo? Pussy.

    Something can be said about a lot of sports 'stars' these days. Back in my day there were WAYYYYY less 'injuries' and crap. Hell, when I played football in university I played the finals with 6 cracked ribs (although stupid makes a point) and played basketball with my left hand shooting and dribbling (as a PG) when I broke my right hand. Now it seems a player sits if he scratches his pinky wif a wittle paper cut.

    We need Dick Butkus to come out and clothesline these wussies like he did the fan who ran out onto the field during a game.

    Let's not forget the roles of team doctors, who may be more cautious than years past. It's rare to see players miss games onc
