After the Steph Curry news broke yesterday (that he'll be out a minimum of two weeks, maybe more), I sent this tweet as a joke:
Also, If something like this happens to Kawhi, Durant, CP3, LeBron, DeRozan and Millsap as well, I kind of like the Celtics title chances.— Mark Van Deusen (@LucidSportsFan) April 25, 2016
Then last night, Chris Paul (pictured, CP3 for non-NBA people) broke his hand. Yikes. The soon-to-be two-time MVP and another top 10 player (arguably the game's two best point guards) injured on back-to-back days. If Paul Millsap or Demar DeRozan goes down tonight we'll know I'm responsible for some sort of voodoo black magic. Bill Simmons will try to take the credit/blame though, but he didn't jump on board until after Paul got hurt.
I'm starting to think the Celtics can win the title. We only need like 5 more superstars to go down.— Bill Simmons (@BillSimmons) April 26, 2016
