The time Courtney Lee went to the wrong arena for a game


The 2009-10 New Jersey Nets went a ghastly 12-70.

Just how bad did it get?

Former Nets trainer Timmy Welsh shares a lowlight involving Courtney Lee (who, coincidentally, now plays for the Knicks).

Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News:

Courtney Lee, formerly with the Nets, went to the wrong arena for a home game.

“(Lee) calls me and says, ‘I’m at MSG. There’s nobody here,'” Walsh recalled. “I say, ‘That’s because the game is at the Izod Center.'”

Although Lee arrived late after commuting back through the Lincoln Tunnel, he still made the pregame team meeting and nobody knew about the snafu. Walsh had hidden his jersey in the X-ray room so it would be assumed Lee changed and was warming up, rather than fighting rush hour traffic

“I would never lie for a guy,” Walsh said. “If the coach asks me directly, I’m not going to lie. But you take care of these guys. Then they take care of you and appreciate it.”

That’s just one good Walsh anecdote in an article full of them. I recommend reading them all.
