During the affair in Golden State the other night, Shaq stepped on Warriors' rookie Stephen Curry's hand. Want to know how that felt? Curry wrote a blog about it for GQ:
Two nights ago, against the Cavs, I was going down the middle and threw a pass to our center, and then I fell on the floor in the paint. Shaq was right there, but he had his back turned to me. He took a couple steps, and his last step was directly on my right hand. I didn't know what to do. I kind of went into shock 'cause I knew he was like 400 pounds. Ha. All of the weight was on my hand, pinned to the floor pretty cleanly, so I tried to stay as still as possible and not move, 'cause I knew if I tried to get out from under him I might break my hand.
Genuinely shocked that was the extent of the damage.
