WTF? Rodney Stuckey Gets Mean Case Of The “Itis”
Damn near 20 years to the day that the Legend Hank Gathers chunked the deuces following one of your sicker bang-outs in LMU history, Pistons guard Rodney Stuckey fell out during a timeout against King James and the Cavs in Cleveland Friday. Stuckey clutched the Pistons Trainer as teammates sat on the bench without too much concern at first until he was eventually laid out on the ground for over 10 minutes, until an EMT crew was able to get him on a stretcher and take him to a local hospital for evaluation. If seeing something like that doesn’t phase you, then you done seen some crazy ‘ish.
Fortunately Stuckey wasn’t seriously impacted by the collapse, which can best be categorized as suffering from the meanest case of the “Itis” known to man. It usually comes from eating a well-fried piece of chicken or some other delicious meal, but has the tendency to pop up at the most inopportune times, like the middle of a basketball game. Whatever the case, a temporary coma is the inevitable result.
This isn’t the first time that Stuckey has collasped on the court. During a game a few years back he suffered from similar symptoms and was forced to miss a few games as a result. Stuckey was released from the hospital the following day and doesn’t appear to be suffering from any effects of fall out, which looked worse than it actually was and he should be back to giving dudes buckets in a timely fashion.
