You see, Love went onto the court to join his team in celebrating and that's where things almost took a turn for the worse. "I walk out there, the teammate will remain nameless, I go up and give him a big hug [and I said] 'congratulations' and he takes his arm and he goes, 'Ah yeah man, good game' and just hits me right on the arm," Love playfully explained. "Some of the front office staff who was out there with me kind of had to grab me and said, 'Are you OK?'" Cleveland Plain Dealer

It turns out that while orange and yellow confetti was falling from the rafters and while the trophy presentation was going on, Love was in excruciating pain. "I had one of those moments where I was like, 'Oh man, I'm going to have to go back to the locker room. How is that going to look? Will I have to have to sit down?' So I just tried to take a deep breath, calm myself and got home and iced as quickly as [possible]," Love said. Cleveland Plain Dealer

Hawks forward Thabo Sefolosha, who has blamed Manhattan police for the season-ending leg injuries he suffered during his April arrest in the city, told ESPN on Friday that the incident, in addition to carrying a physical toll, also has damaged his reputation. "I was injured in the hands of the police, and it took away a lot from my everyday life," Sefolosha said during an interview at his home. "From being able to help put the kids in bed, going up and down the stairs. We are talking about the stress that it has brought to the entire family, you know, my mom and dad in Switzerland, my brothers and sisters, my wife. Also, the damage to my reputation. I've had people texting me about what they saw in the newspaper and things like this. Every aspect of my life was affected by something like this, and I think putting light on the aftermath of something like this, I think that's also something that's important." ESPN.com
