You might think I’m joking about Kenneth Faried actually knocking out Kurt Thomas with this accidental kick, but Kurt really left the game with a mild concussion, thanks to taking Faried’s adidas to the face. I mean, look at the way he wobbles when he tries to get up. That is a serious strike. The guy in the bottom left corner of this picture knows what I’m talking about.
Concussions are no joke, just ask Kobe Bryant. Now I’m worried Kurt Thomas is only going to be able to play until he’s 55, rather than the 85 like he was planning.
Of course, knowing Kurt Thomas, he’ll probably be back this weekend, hitting 12-footers from the baseline. Not sure anything fazes that guy.
