Marquis Daniels experienced some migraine headaches since Boston’s last game, but feels “a whole lot better” now and could play in tonight’s game against the Dallas Mavericks.
I’ve never had migraines myself, but they sound quite awful. (Boston Globe)
“I feel a whole lot better,” Daniels said. “Bad migraines. Darkness, no sound, it was awful. I feel a lot better now. It was the first time I’ve ever had it.”
Though I’ve never personally experienced a migraine headache, I once took advantage of a high school teacher who did. There’s nothing better as a student than having a substitute teacher, so when I learned of one Latin teacher who experienced bad migraines that caused her to miss school for approximately one week out of every month, I instantly signed up for that class.
It was Latin I, meaning I was a senior taking a class with a bunch of freshmen, but I didn’t care. For one week every month, I walked into class and saw a teacher I barely knew and who definitely didn’t know me. I would immediately put my head down on the desk and close my eyes. Shortly later, dreams would take over my brain and a puddle of drool would inevitably form a moat around my mouth. Simply put: Best. Class. Ever.
Not to continue dulling you with stories of my past idiocy, Daniels also discussed his poor shooting. The small forward is shooting 27.1 percent, hasn’t yet made a single 3-pointer and is shooting a mind-boggling 43.8 percent on shots at the rim (compared to 68.0 percent from the same area of the floor last season).
“I just need to get in the gym more, keep working on my shot,” he said. “Just keep trying to get better, regardless of me being ill or whatever. I just need to get my rhythm back, I need to get in here. It’s valuable for me. Those are shots I normally make. They are going to fall.”
