Arrow Horford gained a lot of respect from me tonight.

http://www.ajc.com/blogs/content/sha...ds_a_clas.html

Quote:
Horford was one of several people affiliated with the Hawks to go directly to the hospital to check on Ford - Dominique Wilkins and Josh Smith’s father Pete Smith were there, too - and make sure he knew that what happened was purely accidental.

Horford, I’m told, waited quite a while for Ford to get done with tests just to make sure he got the chance to speak with him personally. And when told that Horford came to check on him and wanted to speak with him, Ford let it be known that he knew Horford’s lick wasn’t intentional and that he welcomed Horford to stop by and visit.

None of that will make it on the highlight shows. But it’s just an example of the class shown by all involved in what was a frightening sequence, particularly for a guy (in Ford) who has dealt with spine, neck and back issues in his past.

Of course reckless behaviour deserves punishment, but I care more about the true character of someone rather than their split second decision making.

If anything I've become a bigger fan of his than before the game.

Yes, truly remarkable in today's sports. Big ups to Horford!

I became a bigger fan after reading about TJ Fords spine problems and how he still works hard to make it in the NBA. and this here made me a bigger fan of Horford. I think the league will go over the video and find that it was an accident and not done with malicious intent and Horford won't be suspended.

Horford will probably still get suspended a couple of games, even though it wasn't intentional. Respects for Horford going to visit ford in the hospital though.. shows it wasn't intentional, just accidental.

Anytime the Hawks desire Bargnani or Calderon or both... Horford is 100% welcome on the Raptors.

Has the standard for NBA behavior been set this low?

What Horford did was what any human being with a shred of decency would do - go and check on the guy that he sent to the floor and make sure he's okay, especially a guy with a history like Ford's. I mean, yeah, it was a classy thing to do, but is the image of the NBA that bad that a guy who checks on another guy he potentially seriously, seriously hurt is an aberration?

Really after I saw that play I hated Horford in that incident. It did look more intentional than not. I guess if Ford can forgive him I can. I really hope Ford is alright.

Are dumb **** Raptors fans admitting that Bargnani just isn't that good finally? Just the other day I realized Raptors fans are dumb ****s and there's like a million of them.
