Where "Un-amazing" Happens Part 2
Welcome to the unglamorous side of the NBA...
This is part two...
Luke Ridnour once suffered a cut in the forehead after getting hit by a teammate's elbow... in the pre-game warm-up.
WHITE MAN CAN'T JUMP
The crowd bursts into laughter when Nate Robinson, who is 5'9", won a jumpball against Rafael Araujo... who is 6'11".
The Sacramento Kings once allowed Stephen Jackson to shoot 4 three pointers in 4 consecutive possessions in the third quarter. You would think that the Kings learned how to guard him after that shooting spree... but no... Stephen Jackson added one more 3 pointer on the last play of that quarter.

FASTEN YOUR SEAT BELT
The Milwaukee Bucks' team plane had to make 2 unscheduled landings in the span of one week because of mechanical problems.
LABOR PAIN, NO GAIN
Tracy McGrady, leading scorer of the Houston Rockets, had 21 points by halftime. The team then allowed McGrady to leave for the hospital to be with his girlfriend who was in labor. The Rockets went on to play poorly after halftime and lost the game.
