Even Ron Baker does not have enough time for overtime preseason basketball.
With a minute left in overtime of the preseason contest between the Washington Wizards and the New York Knicks, Baker got hit in the upperbody forcing his trainer to pull out the remains of a contact lens. Not wanting to wait for his trainer to run over and get cleaner solution for a new lens, Baker took matters into his own hands.
Or we should say mouth.
The Knicks guard took the new lens, popped it into his mouth, gave it a good Listerine swish and then attempted to place the lens back in his eye.
Just look at the trainer's face. Perhaps it was fitting that Baker's replacement attempt was unsuccessful.
After he affixed the new lens, presumably under better supervision from the trainer, Baker nailed two free throws to help clinch the game for New York.
New York won the preseason opener for both teams 124-121. Baker finished with seven points on 2-for-2 shooting.
It was a game that not only went to overtime to start the new season, it also saw Markieff Morris ejected in the first half and then this.
Welcome back to the NBA everyone.
