Someone needs to tell Steve Blake that those parking lot spike strips may only be able to puncture your car tires if you drive over them the wrong way, but they can puncture your foot no matter how you walk on them. Sharp objects have a tendency to do that.
According to ESPNLosAngeles.com, the Lakers announced Monday that Blake will be out of action for three weeks after he stepped on one of those spike strip thingies and popped a hole in the bottom of his foot. Our guess is he wasn’t paying attention, otherwise I’m not really sure how you would miss one of those things. They’re pretty obvious when you’re driving, so I would think they would be just as easy to see while strolling along on foot.
Unless he was walking barefoot like this Ohio State player who cut his foot and needed surgery, you have chalk this up as some pretty bad luck for a guy who has had plenty of it on the court since the Lakers signed him. It’s not like he punched something in frustration after a meaningless game.Google+
