Sickened by what he was seeing, the injured big man shattered his flatscreen by throwing a shoe at it: “The Minnesota Timberwolves star’s first experience with a traumatic injury has been difficult to handle at times and he has already taken his frustrations out on one TV in his suburban Minneapolis home after being reduced to a 6-foot-10, 265-pound couch potato. ‘I’m replacing a TV in my house right now, as we speak, because I threw things at the TV because I’d be so upset,’ Jefferson said sheepishly yesterday in his first public comments since he was injured in a game against New Orleans on Feb.8. ‘Sometimes it’s a bad call with the ref or anything. So I’ve got to control my emotion on that point.’ It turns out that a thrown size 18 shoe can do quite a bit of damage to a flatscreen TV. ‘I had to replace that TV anyway,’ Jefferson said with a shrug.”
