N.B.A. players are also having this "scourge" called Plantar fasciitis

Posted by caryne on 12/22/99 at 00:00 (014015)

The Suns played the Spurs last night without Penny Hardaway, he has missed the last 8 games and was put on the disabled list due to plantar fasciitis in the right foot. So even with all his money and access to Dr.'s he can't get rid of it...so it just shows us all that there is no 'quick fix' to this..I'm sure most of us by now have realized that. Thanks to all who responded about getting better and having good days with bad ones but hopefully the good will be more than the bad in the next few months.

Ha! We could form our own NBA team: The PF Spurs. Problem is, we'd all be on the bench more than on the court!

The PF Spurs who play from the the bench. I like that. John this should prove to everyone that you do have a sense of humor.

Thanks. And if that doesn't convince 'em, I was also the guy who started that 'You know you have PF when...' thread a while back. Of course, that humor tended toward the 'dark' side, so I don't think this fact alone will redeem me in the eyes of those I've offended :-)
