Look I am not going to lie, I do not enjoy visiting the doctors office. The smell, the inevitable bad news, or possibly being told I might have to get sliced open doesn't sit well with me. But for San Antonio Spurs' Gary Neal, he had to go under the knife recently to remove his appendix which will sideline him for a few days.
Now I've never had to have my appendix removed, so I was a bit stunned when I heard it isn't an invasive and people are usually back up and running almost immediately. And head coach Gregg Popovich was quick to poke fun of Neal and his recovery time.
Check out Pop having a laugh at Neal's expense (via woai.com) and what he had to say about the whole thing.
There are players of similar height as neal so the spurs won't miss him. All other teams are upgrading their lineup except the spurs. They are on the hunt for BIG MAN. Hey Mr. Buford/ coach Pop you are looking the wrong way. The players of the d-league are just crumbs. Are you really seriously in looking at a big man? All the available big men are signing with other teams. Perhaps, to the mind of the spurs a guy 6'7"" is tall to man the interior. Hey in basketball height is might. Why are all the big guys going to the mavs, lakers, celtics, heat, new york? The spurs have not learned its lesson - the grizzlies are still alive!
@rtesoro440 yup and at the rate free agents are NOT flocking to SA, seems thismight be the team we go to war with
