    I don't think he's acting but you are correct.

    His leg often gets cramps when he's tired.

    Have you watched him play at all this year? Dude has taken some serious beatings from the hardwood this year and has gotten back up, that's called playing through pain.

    He is a tough kid!

    I do kind of laugh a little bit when he looks like he can barely walk one second and the next he has a 38 inch verticle. I'm sure he is hurt...just not as much as he acts...but you will never hear me complain because he is one of the few guys on our team that doesn't shy from contact

    I mentioned the same thing earlier in the season but someone posted that he's constantly battling cramps and it's not something he can prevent.

    I mentioned it about 6 weeks ago, he is a drama queen when it comes to injuries. Especially on the defensive end. There was one game I thought he blew his knee out because he was slamming his hands on the ground and everything. Turns out, it was a cramp.

    Didn't his knee get totally destroyed a few years back? Isn't that why we're having such issues getting him another year of eligiblity.

    BTW folks - let's keep in mind Chris's reminder yesterday on not insulting players or name calling. Thanks.

    What's your agenda here? Did he steal your wallet or something?

    I see where the OP is coming from. Booze and JVB went down once and they were out for the season. Gilstrap has gone down about 50 times and has only missed a couple of minutes? Hmm...

    Not questioning has manhood. Just noting the fact that he may like to "embellish" a little.

    its probably not an act... every time i play basketball my left ankle gets all jacked up... i have bone on bone... its painful, i hope limp a bit, but just keep playing... maybe his body really does hurt... good athletes can shut the pain off and go during plays... nothing hurts til you stop moving.
