I will say, I’m no Cole Anthony fan, but thought some were a little harsh


When he went down with the gash in his forehead and yelled “Why do I keep getting hurt?!” and swore, folks on here were tearing into him. Anybody who has played any kind of sport knows that injuries can be incredibly frustrating, and I think that was an incredibly normal reaction from a guy that wants to compete. When you work to come back from one injury and then fear you might have just been knocked out of another game with a new injury in a tough season while blood is streaming down your face, I don’t think the world should judge what you say unless you lash out at somebody else, which he didn’t. (Also who cares about swearing? If TV networks don’t want to hear folks swearing they shouldn’t put the mic near athletes in the middle of game action.)

Additionally, he does deserve some credit for even coming back and playing this season. He could have shut it down after his knee injury and just focused on prepping for the NBA draft like a number of guys in basketball and football have done recently. But he didn’t, and while I don’t think he’s nearly as good as the hype or a good fit on that team right now, he didn’t abandon his team when I’m sure a number of folks were telling him he should. Just my two cents.
