    I didn’t think anything could be quicker than Gabrielino’s exit from the playoffs, but this Bogut incident proved me wrong.

    Sounds a little like what used to happen when I was on the job. A guy or girl would hurt themselves at home playing with the kids then hang on til the morning and slip and fall at work. Workman’s comp pays more take home than regular pay plus a settlement. Cha ching.
