First it was the report of an injured (and possibly broken) wrist for Michael Beasley. And now a second purported malady from playing in China: asthma. How? Per Deadspin, via NiuBBall:

While playing in Shuangyashan, Heilongjiang province … (Paul) Pierce and Beasley both suffered asthma attacks due to large amounts of fans smoking cigarettes inside the stadium.

That's something we haven't had to worry about in the NBA and/or Target Center since Stojko Vrankovic's playing days.

Can we go ahead and end the lockout, please?
