Jason Richardson left Sunday’s game between the Philadelphia 76ers and New York Knicks after just 107 seconds after spraining his ankle when he accidentally stepped on a cameraman situated courtside at Madison Square Garden.
Richardson, who is in his first season with the Sixers, was driving to the hoop and missed a layup that was defended by Carmelo Anthony. His momentum took him out of bounds where he accidentally backed into the cameraman, rolling his ankle.
Richardson limped off the court and was reportedly wearing a walking boot after the game, per CSN Philly. He was so upset he tweeted the following message after the game:
Whelp I guess it’s more important to get a picture shot than player safety smh. I will work my hardest to get back on the court ASAP.

Jason Richardson of the Philadelphia 76ers had a run in with a cameraman who was filming underneath the basket, and the cameraman won. Check out the below video of the incident, and notice that the cameraman continues doing his job like nothing happened. I am not saying that the cameraman is exactly like the band from Titanic, but pretty cool nonetheless. via The Score Article...
Jason Richardson and Andrew Bynum.credit: media.philly.com
76ers shooting guard Jason Richardson recently suffered a sprained ankle after stepping on a cameraman, which is a blow to a team that is already without star center Andrew Bynum. For some, this may seem like a fairly ordinary injury, and an event that is part of the game. After all, as fans, we all want the best media coverage...
Personally, I feel bad for Philadelphia 76ers guard Jason Richardson who injured his left ankle on Sunday against the New York Knicks.Richardson was cutting to the basket for a lay-up and as he was looking back to see if he made the shot, he tripped over an outstretched foot of a cameraman under the basket:Clearly, the cameramen should be moved back a bit but this play is just bad luck all around.
The Philadelphia 76ers' Nick Young has always been a very talented player, but he can also be a bit of a headache at times. His shot selection for example has always been an issue, and as I write this, he's 4 of 15 from the field in tonight's game against the Knicks.
And one of those missed shots was particularly awful:

Andrew Bynum still has no timetable about a potential return.

It happened in the first quarter after Carmelo made a big block on Sixers guard Nick Young during a fast break and tried to chase down the loose ball. Melo made...
I try to keep my Orlando Magic homerisms to a minimum around these parts because people complain about it, but one of the greatest moments of my life as a sports fan came this summer when the Magic got the Philadelphia 76ers to take Jason Richardson. That’s not a knock on the 6ers, by any means. My beef was always with Otis Smith for giving J-Rich that stupid 4-year deal before...
PHILADELPHIA - Carmelo Anthony collected 21 points Monday night as the New York Knicks routed the Philadelphia 76ers for the second straight day, 110-88. Anthony, who had 27 points in Sunday's 100-84 victory over the Sixers in New York, was one of seven Knicks in double figures.
