Dallas Mavericks point guard Jason Kidd has had a relatively solid series against the San Antonio Spurs so far but before game one of the series, he had to take a little trip to the porcelain bus, what is that you ask? Let’s learn more from the Dallas Morning News:
Mavericks point guard Jason Kidd was fighting a nasty stomach problem during Game 1 Saturday night and was told to stay at the hotel and rest rather than attend the light practice Sunday afternoon.
By Sunday evening, Kidd was improving, team officials said. He is expected to be at the shootaround this morning and play in Game 2.
Kidd actually vomited while on the bench in the opener. He had been nauseated since Saturday morning, leaving shootaround in a hurry to get to the nearest bathroom.
Yeah, Kidd has to “lose his cookies” prior to the Mavericks game one victory.
Honestly, playing with a stomach virus can be a bitch. Just ask Michael Jordan about that one. However, Kidd has played consistantly through-out the series and is a major factor in Dallas owning a 2-1 series lead. So kudos to him for not letting that stomach ailment affect him in game one.
Hopefully for Kidd’s sake it was like this example of “hugging the royal throne” from “Teen America: World Police”
