Jason Richardson Stepped in Glass, Played in Game 5

Yeah, J-Rich is definitely tougher than you are, hombre. From the Orlando Sentinel: “Jason Richardson played through considerable pain Tuesday night after stepping on glass at his home in Orlando in the afternoon. The accident caused him to have seven stitches sewn into the bottom of his foot before the Orlando Magic’s 101-76 victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday. When asked about how much it hurt, Richardson exhaled and said, ‘It’s tough. It hurts.’ He said he won’t miss Thursday’s Game 6, but it’s possible he could be limited in Wednesday’s practice. ‘I’ll be ready to go,’ Richardson said. ‘I’m a tough guy.’ Richardson led the Magic with 17 points Tuesday night.”

    Hahahaha, 7 stiches on the botton of your foot, WOW!!!! I played on a bad blister in H.S. once and at the half I was almost in tears. Show the cut J Rich!

    I wonder how Vince Carter is feeling after being stepped on like that. First the trade, now this–what an indignity!

    I totalled my truck (flipped it 6 times) at 85 mph 2 saturdays ago on my way back from a party and was thrown thru the passenger side window, shoving multiple shards of glass into my back. And i somehow managed to f*ck my foot up while in the process of flipping, stretching all the tendons and ligaments in my left foot and slightly fracturing my ankle. I had already signed my team up for a tourney in my hometown last saturday so I went ahead and went thru with it. I didn’t know if i would be able to play but then i remembered how Iverson did work on his severely sprained ankle so i just threw a brace on it, dealt with the screaming pain, and played ball. I’v been on crutches ever since lol.

    First Boozer breaks his hand, now JRich cuts his foot. Man, the homes of these players are dangerous places.

    Amazing how he ended up with his best game of the series. SVG better should give Hedo multiple lacerations (best-case: Turk doesn’t play)

    Where the heck does Jrich live? A dark alley? How do you just have shards of glass laying around the floor of your home when you gross millions of dollars?
