JTA scary fall Celtics

Midway through the fourth quarter of the Warriors' loss to the Boston Celtics back on April 17, Juan Toscano-Anderson went tumbling over the scorer's table as he saved the ball from going out of bounds.

He ended up with a concussion and 30-plus stitches after banging his head against a piece of metal.

JTA about a week after the fall revealed some of the details of his scary experience. And during an appearance this week on The Ringer's Real Ones podcast with Logan Murdock and Raja Bell, he shed even more light.

"For the first 2-3 days, I didn't remember anything," the Oakland native said. "But it all started coming back to me. I tried to brace myself and my fingers came off. It just happened in slow motion. I'm like, 'Damn, bruh. F--k.'

"And I started to fall back and I see the lights [hanging from the rafters]. I just hit my head on the metal thing -- boom. I got a ringing sound. The lady that was sitting there -- she looked at me and I looked at her, and as soon as she looked at me I just passed out.

"And then when I opened my eyes, everybody was standing on top of me ... not to be dramatic -- but if we keeping it 1,000 right now, I could have died. That s--t was bad."

 

Scary stuff indeed.

And when you think about it, it's remarkable that the 28-year-old only missed two games before returning to the court.

JTA is one tough dude.
