Celtic forward Jeff Green recently posted a photo of his post-game recovery gear to his twitter account that raised a couple of important questions.First, how much does an Iron Man suit retail for?And, second, shouldn't new medical technology be sleek and less reminiscent of an Iron Man suit?
An NBA player from a visiting team generally doesn't receive a sustained standing ovation at the opposition's home court.
