    He went up for the rebound and came down and it looked like he twisted his ankle a little bit.

    Also L. Tomlinson was aslo in the Basketball game, but he told the reporters he would take it easier for the rest of the game after what happend to Bush.

    These guys are also used to being able to stop on a dime. It's a different surface from say football and baseball to basketball. I can't count the number of times I've hurt my ankles from not having spikes to stop or for better traction on the basketball court.

    It is a shame that he got hurt, cause front offices usually frown on players participating in events like this. And now that Bush got hurt playing in it, they are going to be more opposed. Which is uderstandable since they are protecting their investments, but I know I and I am sure other fans enjoy watching them play in these type of events.

    I'm surprised he was allowed to play in it. It didn't look like anything serious, just a rolled ankle but much worse could have happened. I'm sure they'll try adding a clause in his contract which would prohibit this type of thing.

    Didn't Berkman hurt his knee badly from playing a Charity flag football event?

    That's how most of today's professionals are though; very competitive in whatever they do. In the end I'd rather have that person 9/10 more than someone cautious. :yes:

    Vince Young wouldn't have gotten hurt if he played in that game, plus he would have won the game for his team and even turned the rim into gold while doing it.

    Sincerely,
