Houston Rockets keep getting injured in order to spend time with "super hot" trainer

From the Wait 'til this Year Humor Vault

HOUSTON--It was discovered Sunday that the Houston Rockets have an athletic trainer who has been described as "super hot," "a definite 10," and "practically a super model," which helps explain the many injuries to Rockets players this season.

Tracy McGrady went down for the season in February, and Ron Artest, Shane Battier, Yao Ming, Luther Head and others have all missed time due to injuries as well. While fans thought it was simply a rash of bad luck, it turns out Houston players will do almost anything to miss a game, as it provides them the opportunity to spend time with the team's beautiful trainer, Nicole Mangiardi.

"You caught us," said a smiling McGrady as Mangiardi assisted him with his rehabilitation from knee surgery. "But can you blame us?"

Seven Rockets players were lined up behind McGrady in the trainer's room, and two Portland Trailblazers had earlier been turned away and told to go to their own trainer's room.


  1. I thought the entry was funny but Nicole or at least her picture was not hot! At least not hot enough to wait in line for.

  2. Touche. It was the best picture I could find of an attractive woman dressed like a trainer might be. I need a bigger budget.
