Paul Pierce, Michael Beasley Had Asthma Attacks Due to Smoking Fans in China


Michael Beasley didn’t just perhaps fracture his wrist while playing in an exhibition game in China this past Sunday, it appears that he and Paul Pierce (who played on the same team) each suffered asthma attacks to boot. From Niubball (via NetEase): “While playing in Shuangyashan, Heilongjiang province… Pierce and Beasley both suffered asthma attacks due to large amounts of fans smoking cigarettes inside the stadium. After the game, things got even more shocking when Beasley fell to the floor in his hotel and started to roll around in obvious pain, scaring everyone around half-to-death. At that point, there was no choice but to dial 120 (the number for an ambulance in China) and take him to the hospital.”

  • gtrip

  • MUBWAR

    how about all the haze in be easy’s lungs. I bet that one didn’t want to mix wit the tobacco

  • http://therurbangriot.com The NUPE

    Wonder if this will make some players think twice about going to China to play. It’s hard to imagine so much smoke in an arena that multiple players get asthma attacks.

  • Rob Cooper

    Who said China was going to take over the world?

  • loaf

    B easy having a asthma attack really? With how much erb he chucks down his lungs? An NBK saying two different effects on the lungs? Seriously now, smoke is smoke an weed smoke is really damaging!

  • Ray Smoove

    @ loaf, you’re an idiot.

    loaf why don’t you do some research and comeback less ignorant.

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    LOL, you were looking to start some ISH up here this morning nbk man. It’s called a joke. Lol, obviously they are completely different. Take it from a dude that smokes daily. The good stuff of course ;)

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=M88NkqIvdc4 nbk

    Lake I knew you were joking, i catch your little subliminals on other threads, plus seems like we are similar people but look what your joke led to, people like Loaf….. lol

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    Ahahah, lmao, Look what my joke has done! It’s created an ignorant monster named loaf. Loaf, I wanna apologize if my post led you to believe that the litterally thousands of additives in a cig, is in someway similar to an organic plant when burned and inhaled.

  • http://www.bulls.com Enigmatic

    “smoke is smoke”.
    LOL…

  • roybot

    Whoa loaf there’s a great thing called the internet. Why don’t you google a little bit more in your life and actually do some research on the difference between smoke from a miraculous plant vs. an addictive plant PLUS hundreds of other chemicals.

  • MUBWAR

    Actually Lakeshow Canada has the good stuff, you guys have the alright stuff

    I heard pot smoking cures cancer and makes you jump higher.

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    And gives you super sperm

  • http://sdklflc.com Jukai

    Yep, forgot about the super sperm, thanks Allenp.

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    Contrary to popular belief, and 22 person medical studies (which is the 2003 study..from the very prestigious university of buffalo that “confirmed” this myth, and included a grand total of 75 people and only 22 Pot Smokers, you now, too represent the whole human race). The real effects of marijuana on sperm count are about the same as alcohol. Sperm half-life and seminal fluid is a different story, but only in heavy users. i am hella bored

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    Look it’s the two always sober old dudes here to tell us wack kids the evils of our ways! Haha jk fellas. MubWar, you don’t even know main. You don’t even know. Ha okay maybe you know, but let me tell ya that I got some HighTimes looking ish. Definitely best on the West Coast. I’m always down to check up on some competition and if you Canucks got it, i’ll be making a trip to the cold north believe that.

    I’ve upgraded to cocain now, weed is some kiddie sh*t

  • NJ4Life

    Anyone who thinks these two WOULDN’T have had asthma attacks if the whole place was getting blazed instead of smoking cigarrettes is out of their damn minds.

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    Jukai, Don’t do that. That is an addictive drug that can take you very bad places. Don’t be stupid.

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    Chain smoking and social smoking are pretty ubiquitous in China. I haven’t heard too much about weed, though, since illicit substances carry serious penalties over there, especially trafficking. Of course the people still do it, though.
    Should be noted that the Chinese are one of, if not THE first people to cultivate the hemp plant.

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    Co-sign NJ4Life… I’m pretty sure a gymnasium full of weed smoke can trigger asthma too.

  • MikeC.

    Cue the Nate Dogg loop.

    When I saw the headline, I couldn’t help but remember that Truth was stabbed and had holes in him earlier.
