Bobcats Cleanup Crew to Blame for Vince Carter’s Injury?

Stan Van Gundy certainly seems to think so, as his forward went down on Saturday night after slipping on a wet spot. The Orlando Sentinel reports: “What a wacky, unpredictable night at Time Warner Cable Arena. Before we get to Quentin Richardson’s unlikely late-game heroics and Rashard Lewis’ discovery of his 3-point shot in Lost and Found, let’s start with Magic coach Stan Van Gundy, who was ranting and ripping the guys who push the mops around the court. He walked onto the floor late in the fourth period, yelling toward the Bobcats’ bench. Van Gundy received a technical foul, a dicey decision considering the Magic led by only four points after D.J. Augustin hit the free throw Charlotte was awarded. Van Gundy said Vince Carter injured himself after slipping on a wet spot. Carter hobbled off after falling with one minute and 45 seconds left and did not return. He said he has a sore hip and knee. ‘We got a guy hurt simply because they wouldn’t dry a damn wet spot,’ said Van Gundy, who added that a Bobcat player slipped in the spot earlier. ‘When a player goes down they’re supposed to do it. They didn’t care. That’s ridiculous. I’m just ticked off.’”

    Its alright Bobcats cleaning crew, Vince would’ve found another way to hurt himself if you hadnt messed up. Dont take it too hard.

    Vince carter? Injured? No way!? Half man half injury is back at it again.

    There was a leak on the floor that led to VC’s injury. Are we sure the “leak” wasn’t from Vince himself?

  • TrailBlazing&SportingLisbon

    guys, go see this moment, I hate injuries and dont usually mock guys for getting hurt but this was a laugher

  • MikeC.

    Maybe the wet spot trickled down off SVG’s sweaty meat-jacket.

    Its just Vince Carter hate. If that was Chris Paul, yall would be upset at the clean-up crew, not making fun of Chris.

    i’m surprised he only hurt his hip instead of breaking it entirely. he needs more calcium and iron in his diet…
