The Cavs’ doctors were concerned enough with the severe cramping that they called for a stretcher and sent him to the Cleveland Clinic for overnight IVs to get him rehydrated. He wasn’t released until the following afternoon. “I probably pushed it a little. I thought I’d pushed it before but there was just so much on the line,” Dellavedova said. “I wasn’t scared. What was scary was how am I going to prepare for the next game? I only had one day’s rest between the games. I told them I didn’t need to go to the hospital, but then I thought to myself ‘What would happen if these cramps happened again in the middle of the night?’ I would’ve been screwed.”
What’s the most pitiful trash talk you’ve heard around the NBA? AB: I haven’t had anything super pitiful. I mean, from fans you get it: “Go back to Australia.” From players, it’s all just the same kind of stuff. It’s all, “You don’t know where I’m from. I’m gonna mess you up.” It’s all for the cameras, generally. There’s never really going to be a fight on the NBA court. A thrown punch that misses is $20,000.
While Exum is guaranteed to get another contract, Dellavedova is on a one-year, $1.6m deal which holds no guarantees of extension should he pick up a serious injury playing for the Boomers. Dellavedova said Exum’s injury had not made him rethink his Boomers future, however: “Dante will be back stronger than ever from his injury, but nah, for me you can get injured playing pickup basketball anywhere. “You’ve obviously got to be smart and take care of yourself because you’ve only got a small window for your playing career, but you don’t want to wrap yourself up in cotton wool either because this is what you play for, to play for the green and gold.”
