Shaq And Chuck Shame Kevin Love, Who Has A Concussion, For Missing Game 7

 

This is one of the most ridiculous things I’ve heard. Even though I’m a huge fan of Inside the NBA on TNT, what Shaquille O’Neal and Charles Barkley said last night, was among the dumbest things I’ve heard on TV this season.

As you know, Cavaliers forward Kevin Love had to leave Game 6 with a concussion after a horrible collision with Jayson Tatum.

 

 

While Love has been placed in the NBA’s concussion protocol, the Cavs had to announce that he’ll miss Game 7. This led to following ignorant statements by Shaq and Chuck:

 

Shaq: “Ain’t nothing holding me from no Game 7, I’m going straight to Walgreens, get some Advil. We going to play.”

Chuck: “I’m with you on this one. I’m not missing a Game 7.”

 

First of all, it is not Kevin Love’s decision if he’s going to play or not, while in the protocol. Secondly, concussions aren’t injuries you should take lightly, as they could end up being life-altering and incredibly dangerous.
