[Spurs] 特製ベジ・フルーツ100%『スーパー・シェイク』で疲労回復

The San Antonio Spurs, made with 100 percent juice

By Michael C. Wright / ESPN Staff Writer

Kawhi Leonard’s custom cold-pressed juice has been named “Kawhi-Zilla” by Spurs staff, and features strawberry, watermelon, lemon and chia seed. LaMarcus Aldridge drinks one with a label that reads “LaLa Leave My Juice Alone,” which is a mixture of pineapple, orange, strawberry, spinach and secrecy. For the last three years, nearly every player on San Antonio’s roster drinks his own personalized juice whipped up by the staff as an aid to recovery.

GreenさんのはやはりGreen Juice?(笑)

It’s one of many things the Spurs do in the name of player health. Does it work? Hard to say. But also hard to ignore, especially if you’re one of the 29 teams that trails the Spurs when it comes to injury prevention. Over the last decade, and despite an older roster, the Spurs have ranked first in the league with only 1,054 missed games to injury. During the 2015-16 season, Spurs players missed only 59 games due to injury, according to In Street Clothes.

League points finger at union in NHL concussion case

By Rick Westhead / TSN | Apr 21, 2017

The National Hockey League says the NHL Players’ Association has repeatedly interfered with its attempts to introduce rules over the past 50 years to limit staged fighting, better safeguard players and bolster penalties for dangerous head hits.

Connolly wrote, “…hockey players today continue to compete fiercely for the chance to play in the NHL despite significant publicity – including in feature films and press coverage of this very litigation – regarding the alleged risks of head hits. Accordingly, the notion that no proposed class member would have played in the NHL if he received more information about those risks is highly implausible.”

Four Jr. Hockey Players Who Committed Suicide Diagnosed with CTE

By Rick Westhead | April 27, 2017

Tyler Maland, a spokesman for the Concussion Legacy Foundation, said more than 1,700 people have pledged to donate their brains to B.U. for study of CTE, a brain-withering disease linked to repeated concussions.

Of those 1,700, five are former NHL players. No current NHL player has pledged his brain. By comparison, three active NFL players and more than 100 former NFL players have pledged their brains to science, Maland said.

“…To continue to play a sport like hockey or football, you have to turn a blind eye to this,” said Lisa McHale, the foundation’s director of family relations. “Willful ignorance is an easier tack to take than being concerned about CTE when you’re still making your living as a professional athlete.”



LatendresseさんはNHLを引退して6年、不安症、ストレス、頭痛、疲労、睡眠障害など脳震とうの後遺症に苦しんでいるとラジオで語った。彼とSidは同い年(ジュニア・リーグのドラフト全体1位と2位)。Sidもプロ入りして以来、少なくとも4度の脳震とうを経験している。世界最高のホッケー選手は、将来のQOLを考えて早期引退すべきか? r/hockeyのファンが話し合っています。

Guillaume Latendresse’s life, 4 years after retiring due to concussions


Guillaume Latendresse was interviewed this morning on the 98.5 radio in Montreal. While the subject of the interview was Crosby’s injury, Latendresse instead started talking about his personal injuries and the effects they have on his life.

  • Had 6 concussions in his last 3 seasons
  • Still has anxiety, stress, headaches, fatigue, can’t function with less than 8 hours of sleep
  • […]

SidやTangerは将来の健康/家族のためにホッケーから足を洗うべきか、というのは彼らが脳震とうを起こすたびにファンのあいだで繰り返されてきた議論です。究極的には本人と医師のあいだで話し合われるべきこと。ただファンとしても不安を覚えずにはいられません。 😥

Should Sidney Crosby consider retiring?


The time may be approaching, doctors suggested Wednesday, for Crosby to take a hard look at not when — but if — he should return to the game.

“When there have been multiple concussions, the chance of having persisting symptoms goes up terrifically,” said Dr. Charles Tator, the director of the Canadian Concussion Centre at Toronto Western Hospital. “So we’re especially careful about helping people avoid further concussions.

2011年の復帰が遅れたのは、実は首の負傷が原因だという推測も。そうだといいなあ…(これをwillful ignoranceというのか?)

Blake Griffinを軟弱だとののしりたいなら、チームのスタッフを殴って自分の手を骨折だかなんだかしたことを持ち出してほしい。ただMcJesusくんも試合中に誰かを殴ろうとして手を怪我したことがありましたよね。

Former NHL Players Are More Prone To Psychiatric Disorders Than The General Public: Study

By Sarah Rieger | Posted: 04/16/2017


The study found while there’s little evidence of cognitive impairment in the former athletes, there were “marked differences” between former players and the control group with the number of people with psychiatric disorders. Some of those differences could be due to the number of concussions NHL players experience, researchers suggest.

“Reliable group differences in cognitive performance were observed on tests of executive and intellectual function; performance on these measures was associated with concussion exposure,” the study reads.

Players who experienced more concussions scored lower on intellectual function tests than members of the control group.


NHLは「脳震とうとホッケーは関係ありませんよ~! 🙂 」という態度を取っており、NBAファンはおろか、NFLファンでさえ目をむくような危険なプレイに対しても、ろくに処罰を与えようとしない。

Penguins’ biometrics program helps alleviate injury woes

By Bill West | TribLIVE | April 9, 2017

“As long as the athletes believe (the tracking) is beneficial and there’s a trust relationship between the coaches and the athletes, then (players) will buy in,” said CoachMePlus president and co-founder Kevin Dawidowicz, who counts 11 NHL teams among his company’s clients. “The Penguins are actually a very successful organization at doing this. … They’re one of the more advanced teams.”



“There’s lots out there if you want to wrap your head around it,” Crosby said. “You don’t go by everything, but there’s certain pieces of information you can use. It’s not always the information you get. It’s how you interpret that information.”
