Lie to me Enes, LIE TO ME! I don't care how bad the pain is, because when it is caused by an inanimate object that is designed to provide enough padding for the weight of a whole human ass it has absolutely has to be ignored until further notice. I genuinely believe that the only thing more selfish than a professional athlete somehow breaking his forearm in such an asinine, inexplicable way is a professional athlete not doing everything in his power to convince his teammates, his coaches, and their fans that he actually did it in a mildly appreciable manner. I honestly think I could do a better job justifying this injury if he immediately "had to go to the bathroom" and "tripped" on "a wet spot" while trying to hustle back to the bench in a timely fashion.
Shit, if he really wanted to keep his reputation in tact then he would have put on his big boy face, went back in the game, and taken a charge that "broke" his already broken forearm. How the hell is Westbrook supposed to respect Kanter when Russell finished an entire NBA game with a goddamn dent in the side of his face but Enes can't summon the will power to fake an existing injury?
To say that a person who battles for boards with some of the most physically imposing people on the planet can't possibly be so brittle that his bones can't withstand the impact of a folding chair built for comfort is apparently untrue. To say that a person who battles for boards with some of the most physically imposing people on the planet needs to show some toughness and keep a straight face until the time is right to fabricate a believable fall, however, is a fact that we all should have learned after Amare Stoudemire got one-punch-knocked out of the lineup by a fire extinguisher.
