Reporting John Madden
OAKLAND (KCBS) – Playing with a sprained right ankle, Stephen Curry had 25 points, 10 assists and seven rebounds as the Warriors beat the Lakers 109-103 at the Oracle Arena Monday night.
“I don’t mean to be a ten cent psychologist,” John Madden told the KCBS morning crew, “but I think if you have an injury, you tend to concentrate a little more… Not that I would ever recommend it, but you know a guy gets hurt, or (has) an ankle sprain, you know, twists a knee or something like that, and then he plays better.”
Former NFL quarterback Vince Young may be looking to make a comeback when he takes part in Texas’ Pro Day in Austin Tuesday.
“If you’re a coach or a scout, you want to look at that guy,” Madden said, noting Young’s ability to run the option. “You know where he was, and you think ‘doggone it if there’s not an injury or something like that, it still has to be there somewhere, and I’m going to be the guy that finds it.’”
Young didn’t play last year after being cut by the Buffalo Bills. (7:20)
