Raja Bell is Tougher Than You

by November 19, 2009

We made fun of his decision to have surgery a bit yesterday, but the reality is that Raja is one tough and inspirational SOB: “Golden State played just seven men in a loss at Cleveland the night before on Tuesday, and Bell’s minutes were helpful as the Warriors stayed close with Boston for most of the game Wednesday. What’s more, Bell gave the Warriors an example of the gutsy, scrappy, sacrificial disposition they need to be successful. ‘That meant a lot for me,” guard Anthony Morrow said. ‘He wanted o be with his teammates. It’s a reflection of the kind of person he is. We definitely need that. Everybody kind of needs to rally around each other and play hard for each other, show a lot of heart, a lot of courage, lot of character. I appreciated that.'”
