Topic - Ron Harper
Nationals head trainer Lee Kuntz, also honored as an All-Star this year, monitored Harper closely Monday night, mostly trying to ensure that the 20-year-old stayed hydrated enough during the nearly three-hour competition.
After the Los Angeles Clippers set a record for the longest winning streak in franchise history, Chris Paul was thinking about Ron Harper, Corey Maggette and other former players who endured all that losing.
Bryce Harper took an outside strike and shot a disapproving glance at the umpire.
After all the assists, steals, 3-pointers and triple-doubles, Jason Kidd has an easier path to his next entry in the NBA record book.
"I wanted him to go get checked, and he did because I knew he had a problem with his eyes before," he said. "It's not as bad as everybody thought. The contacts he had before gave him headaches."
Ron Harper said the role that contact lenses played in his son's turnaround was perhaps exaggerated, but there's no mistaking that seeing better helps quite a bit.
