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.
