Not your finest moment, DK. Concussions are serious business, and doctors are only now starting to realize the long-term side effects. The studies are terrifying--even sub-concussive trauma is enough to make your brain shrivel up, if it's over a long period. Look at what happened to Junior Seau, or Ray Easterling, Chris Benoit, and it stops being so funny.

Basketball isn't football, but the fact is the dude had a concussion, and shouldn't be in a rush to get back. Pau doesn't have clearance from the team doctor, and so he can't play per the league's concussion policy. Rushing him back from having his face nearly caved in would be needlessly risky. The concussion policy is actually a good thing, and there's no need to frame things in terms of macho he-man nonsensical bullshit, if you'll pardon the French.
