A grade 3 tear hip flexor tear will sideline him for the duration of the Warrior’s postseason. A postseason that would be expeditiously cut short in his absence were it not for his former Knick teammate/Isaiah Thomas draft pick Danilo Galinari also out. Is this a Knick playoff curse? Of course it is.
During the Golden State Warriors’ victory over the Los Angeles Lakers last night, Dwight Howard and David Lee got into a bit of a tiff. There was an elbow and a Dwight Howard bloody lip and three (!) stitches, and then post-game huffing and vows of mild mannered revenge. Friendship is only a matter of time. But what if, someday, they actually fought?
The Pacers beat the Warriors 108-97 last night. Good win for a streaking team (the Pacers have won five in a row and are now 36-21 on the season), right? Well, yeah, but no one – besides Pacers fans, presumably – really cares that much about that aspect of the game this morning. Why? Because this happened midway through the fourth quarter.
Brilliant. Although Lee doesn’t show up in Chris Webber’s “Similarity Scores” section on Basketball-Reference.com, which measures the statistical similarity between players, they do have a pretty even stat line in year eight of their NBA careers (Lee is in his eighth year right now). The one major difference, though? Points per game. In Webber’s eighth full season — by far his best — he averaged 27.1 points per game, compared to Lee’s 17.4 so far this season. In that 2000-01 campaign, Webber finished 4th in MVP voting, so WCW has a ways to go before his is truly the White Chris Webber. [@cjzero]
David Lee became the first Warriors power forward to have a triple-double since Chris Webber in 1993, but how he got that final assist is definitely worth a second look.
Golden State Warriors forward David Lee almost had his career ended because of an infected elbow – and thanks to this photo, we can see what he’s currently playing through.
