1. I really want to know what the deal is between Etan Thomas and Haywood. Did Brendan steal some of Etan's poetry for his rap album? I was expecting one of them to get shot during All-Star Weekend.
2. Is Yao officially injury-prone or were all his ailments just freak occurrances? His broken leg, Tim Thomas fell into him. Broken foot, Okur kicked him real bad. The only thing that would seem chronic is his toe, but that was explained as an infection of the bone, which is hella gross but doesn't seem like a common thing. He's really big and tall, so it's natural that people are going to be extra-cautious about his rehab, but he's not a porcelain doll like Camby, is he?
