Dallas Mavericks forward Shawn Marion was lucky he didn’t have the difficult assignment of guarding Kobe Bryant for all of Game 1 Monday night. From the sounds of things, he has much more simple tasks to worry about.
Marion was sporting a noticeable cut above his right eyelid that required a few stitches. Marion explained he hurt himself leaving the hotel Friday morning after Dallas closed out their first-round series against Portland.
“I got into a battle with a glass door and the glass door won,” Marion said. “Dead serious. It was an accident. I was in a rush trying to get on the bus and I slipped and I had my glasses on and I cut my eye.”
So he got cut because his glasses broke. Non-prescription fashion statement glasses.
Even though Marion loses points for wearing pointless glasses, he regained them by getting stitched up by a team doctor on the plane. That’s pretty hard, Shawn, but it still doesn’t keep you from joining this infamous list.
