Default DeJuan Blair happy to know he's human

The San Antonio Express-News blog reports:

An inadvertent elbow from Pacers center Roy Hibbert caught Spurs center DeJuan Blair smack in the middle of his face during the first quarter of Saturday's game at the AT&T Center. Blair headed to the bench, bleeding profusely from the nose.

If Blair is to be believed, it was the first time he had seen his own blood.

I didn't know I could bleed, he asserted after the Spurs' Sunday practice session. I'm glad to see I was human.

After Blair's injury was checked out by the team's medical staff, he returned and played another 12 minutes, 7 seconds despite being unable to breathe through his nose.
