Kwame Brown To Undergo Surgery


Get well, Kwame. Nine games and $7 million in your pocket. Via Warriors press release: “Results of an MRI performed yesterday on Golden State Warriors center Kwame Brown revealed a torn pectoralis major (the large chest muscle that attaches to his right shoulder), which will require him to undergo surgery within the next few days, the team announced today. The surgery, which has not yet been scheduled, is expected to keep him out for a minimum of three months. ‘Obviously, we’re very disappointed, especially for Kwame, who was playing extremely well and had worked diligently since his arrival,’ said Larry Riley, the team’s Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations/General Manager. ‘In a short time, he had proven to be the anchor to our low post defense and certainly lived up to his reputation as one of the top interior defenders in the NBA. He had provided us a big, physical presence in the middle, which is something that we’ve lacked in the past. Unfortunately, surgery of this nature typically requires, approximately, a three-month recovery period.’”

    Ithought it was to remove his stone hands. I always think of when he stole a cake from somewhere, then fumbled it, and when asked about it, phil said somn like ‘why wouldn’t he do that?’. I miss phil.

    so, this is what the nba has come to? kwame brown is a $7 mil overpaid, undraftworthy void. his ongoing professional basketball career is inexplicable. it just goes to show that if you`re 7 feet tall with no skills you can make it in the nba.

    Damn, looked like the guy was actually enjoying himself in GS, interacting with his teammates and being coached by Jackson…

    Which NBA is that exactly? Sure isn’t the one he’s been playing in since high school. The NBA: Where Kwame’s Flexible Reputation Happens…

    he was actually doing an okay job at gstate

    he was basically asked to play on one side of the court, since there are more than enough gunslingers at the other positions.
    7 mil well spent again though.

    Funny how people are saying how terrible he’s been this year, must not have been watching GS, because he was playing pretty good for them, not worth 7 million, but he was defending very well and playing pretty good ball. Shame this happened.
