By now you know Nash missed a key moment down the stretch of Game 1 with a cut on his nose that wouldn’t stop bleeding, allowing the Spurs to pull away with a win. Now, several fans are donning lame bandages on their nose in support of Nash for Game 2 in Phoenix. Is it just me or is this move to solidarity going a little too far? To me, it’s even more pathetic and corny than the Miami Heat white out, which is a cheap ripoff of what Winnipeg Jets fans were doing in the mid-80s. But it wasn’t just the fans that were fawning all over the nose bandage. TNT threw to sideline reporter Craig Sager who had more details about what was used to treat Nash’s nose:
- 20 sets of gloves
- 20 gauze pads and band aids
- 2 injury timeouts
- 6 stitches
- 5 sweating strips
- enough super glue that the band aid is not coming off
I think I’m going to be sick.
UPDATE: In his half-time interview, Craig Sager asked Steve Nash if he was going to do anything different with the band-aid for the second half. Nash’s response was classic:
No, but if you keep asking me about it, it’s going to be a problem.
Clearly Mr. Nash agrees with me.
UPDATE 2: My man AA dug up the video of the interview, it’s hilarious
