A scary scene unfolded in Philadelphia last night during the 76ers game against the Nets. Robert Covington had to leave the court strapped down to a stretcher after possibly being knocked out by a kick to the head from a teammate. He seemed to be coherent as they took him away but prior to that he was just laying on the court. Thankfully reports indicate he spent the night in two different hospitals before being released and is now in the NBA concussion protocol.


Crazy thing is the kick doesn’t seem to land with much force but seeing it on video and feeling it land on your head are two different things.
