Commemorating Kenneth Faried’s puke game. The Manimal went beyond his usual brand of explosive in an entertaining victory over the Spurs. A couple notes from the game:
1. Denver broadcasters served up the delightful live action euphemism “got rid of some extra food” to describe Faried’s condition.
2. They then smoothly segued into a KFC-sponsored highlight called “Bucket of the Night” or something similar.
The dominant fan reaction in these sick game situations is to hail the player for being such a warrior. Or, if the player is a hated opponent, doubt about whether they’re actually ill. I mainly just feel bad for these dudes. I don’t know if “play basketball” is at the top of my list of activities to avoid when I have a stomach flu, but it’s definitely on that list. Feel better, Manimal!
