Big Al Tears ACL

RedsArmyAdmin February 9, 2009 Uncategorized 6 Comments

He's out indefinitely.

Al Jefferson, the Timberwolves' best player, will likely miss the rest of the season with a torn knee ligament. He suffered the injury Sunday night in New Orleans near the end of the Wolves' 101-97 loss to the Hornets.

This really does make me sad.  Big Al is not just talented, but he seems to be one of the genuine nice guys in the NBA.  I hope he comes back quickly.

    I’m with you guys on this one…Big Al is a guy thats hard not to root for. Especially after what he did for the C’s during an especially tough time. Heres to hoping that Big Al returns with a vengeance, to tear up the west again at the beginning of next year.

    Bummer it happened to him. REALLY nice guy. But when he was here in Boston I always feared that he was injury prone.

    Gentelman, our big is here. Get this man a workout for Danny.
    Pops Menah-Bonsu, currently playing for the Austin Toros (so he’s available):
    25.5ppg, 11.5rpg, 2.5assts, 2 stls, 3.25blocks, 4 turnovers per game.
    6’10 leaper/athlete out of GW a couple years ago. Been bouncing back and forth between Europe and D-League. He’s a hustle body to bang/finisher for down low.

    Didn’t Pops play for the Mavericks? Either way, I think Ainge will make a run for an older big guy, Pops is pretty young.

    just when he was really making people sit up and take notice of his game…:(
    get well soon, big al. we’re rootin’ for ya.

    Seen Pops playing last year in Treviso… not that much of a deal in my opinion.
