I think that this showed itself last night in particular. Last night Portland played the Denver Nuggets. Kurt Thomas (who is the oldest player in the NBA) was in the first half. Kurt was fighting for a rebound with Kenneth Faried (of the Nuggets) when Faried ended up kicking Kurt in the face!

Wallace takes such good care of his teammate! He sees he's having trouble and rushes to him. Crawford knows something is not right and starts calling for the Athletic Trainer right away. LA is the first one to come over and he and Batum are there help Kurt up.
This is something that I don't know that we do a lot as believers together. We're more than teammates, we're one body, working together, playing this game, fighting this war: we are family, not just teammates. When one of us gets kicked in the face, we should be there to lift each other back to our feet and be strong in standing up for them when they're not able to stand on their own.
Never knew I could learn so much from watching the NBA!
