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 and the best pictures for those who can’t be at the arena, right? If you watch games, you know that the cameramen are very close to the court. As in, they’re practically on the court with the players. We always see guys flying over them to save a ball, or finish a play. The players really have no slack; if you’re off the court, you’re running into either a bench, a fan, or a cameraman. When you consider how big and powerful these guys are, it’s a pretty dangerous situation. J-Rich was traded to Philadelphia this offseason as part of the deal that landed Dwight Howard in Los Angeles, Andrew Bynum in Philadelphia, and Andre Iguodala in Denver. Jason Richardson agrees, and thinks that there needs to be change before someone else gets injured like he did. Via Slam Online: They really don’t belong down there – you see what happens,’ said Richardson, who suffered the sprain when he stepped on a cameraman’s foot at Madison Square Garden. ‘It creates all kinds of problems for players. There’s got to be a better way. He has a legitimate point here. It’s only a matter of time until there is a really serious injury in a big game that is caused by a player rolling his leg on a photographer or cameraman. Hopefully Jason Richardson will be healthy soon enough, and he’s lucky that it was just a sprained ankle. But he certainly made his point known. -Mark Evans, Assistant Manager/Editor of Content Follow us on Twitter The post Jason Richardson: Photographers Shouldn’t Be Near The Court appeared first on Pass The Pill.
