same way he tried to twist Shaquille O'Neal's already-injured thumb
Thursday night in Boston. "I thought what 'Big Baby' did showed the
kind of character, or lack of it, that he has," Carr said.
Shaq tried to stay in the game, and that's when Davis defended the
Cavs center as he posted up by grabbing the tender thumb. Apparently,
Davis mistook it for a wishbone when he had his heart set on knocking
Shaq out of the game.
"He crossed the line," Carr said. "When I played, if a guy had a
hand injury, I would go aggressively after the ball and try to knock it
away. If I got his hand, too, it happens. I would not try purposely to
hit his hand."
Show me the replay and I'll believe this.
Let's say Glen Davis purposely twisted Shaq's thumb. Don't you think Shaq would have reacted? Say, with a punch or a push?
Austin Carr is like Tommy Heinsohn. He sometimes sees things that didn't really happen.
