Bryant McKinnie Tweets a Picture of His Messed-Up Finger

Bryant McKinnie got a ton of grief on Twitter last night when he left the game in the fourth quarter with a dislocated finger, abandoning his team while they were trying to mount a desperate late comeback.

Actually, the grief wasn’t so much about him leaving the game, it was the fact that he had to be driven off on a cart when it was “only” a finger injury.

I won’t repeat some of the things Bryant was called.  Suffice it to say, fans were not thrilled with what they perceived to be a lack of toughness on McKinnie’s part.

Because Bryant is a big Twitter guy himself, I’m sure he read a lot of the stuff people were calling him.  In response to these online catcalls, Bryant has posted a picture of the injured finger, which had to be worked on by a doctor this morning.

I won’t post the picture, but here’s the link.  Don’t click it if you’re squeamish.

Yes, the picture looks bad.  But I still think, given the game situation, Bryant needed to just suck it up and go back in.  Of course, I’m a total pansy myself, so maybe I shouldn’t be so critical.
